Citações Wisława Szymborska

„I remember it so clearly —
how people, seeing me, would break off in midword.
Laughter died.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: I remember it so clearly — how people, seeing me, would break off in midword. Laughter died. Lovers' hands unclasped. Children ran to their mothers. I didn't even know their short-lived names. And that song about a little green leaf — no one ever finished it near me. "Soliloquy for Cassandra"

„Don't bear me ill will, speech, that I borrow weighty words,
then labor heavily so that they may seem light.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: I know I won't be justified as long as I live, since I myself stand in my own way. Don't bear me ill will, speech, that I borrow weighty words, then labor heavily so that they may seem light. "Under One Small Star"

„Contemporary poets are skeptical and suspicious even, or perhaps especially, about themselves.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: Contemporary poets are skeptical and suspicious even, or perhaps especially, about themselves. They publicly confess to being poets only reluctantly, as if they were a little ashamed of it. But in our clamorous times it's much easier to acknowledge your faults, at least if they're attractively packaged, than to recognize your own merits, since these are hidden deeper and you never quite believe in them yourself.

„I am a tarsier and a tarsier's son,
the grandson and great-grandson of tarsiers“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: I am a tarsier and a tarsier's son, the grandson and great-grandson of tarsiers, a tiny creature, made up of two pupils and whatever simply could not be left out... "Tarsier"

„As far as you've come can't be undone.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: There's no life that couldn't be immortal if only for a moment.Death always arrives by that very moment too late.In vain it tugs at the knob of the invisible door. As far as you've come can't be undone. "On Death, Without Exaggeration"

„Those who knew
what this was all about
must make way for those
who know little.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: Those who knew what this was all about must make way for those who know little. And less than that. And at last nothing less than nothing. "The End and the Beginning"

„Only what is human can truly be foreign.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: And how can we talk of order overall when the very placement of the stars leaves us doubting just what shines for whom?Not to speak of the fog's reprehensible drifting! And dust blowing all over the steppes as if they hadn't been partitioned! And the voices coasting on obliging airwaves, that conspiratorial squeaking, those indecipherable mutters! Only what is human can truly be foreign. "Psalm"

„I'm sorry that my voice was hard.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: I'm sorry that my voice was hard. Look down on yourselves from the stars, I cried, look down on yourselves from the stars. They heard me and lowered their eyes. "Soliloquy for Cassandra"

„Nothing's a gift, it's all on loan.“

—  Wisława Szymborska
Context: Nothing's a gift, it's all on loan. I'm drowning in debts up to my ears. I'll have to pay for myself with my self, give up my life for my life. "Nothing's a Gift"
