„Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud…“

—  Yann Martel, livro Life of Pi
Life of Pi (2001), Context: The reason death sticks so closely to life isn't biological necessity — it's envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud. Chapter 1, p. 6

„To my mind, faith is like being in the sun. When you are in the sun, can you avoid creating a shadow?“

—  Yann Martel
Beatrice & Virgil (2010), Context: To my mind, faith is like being in the sun. When you are in the sun, can you avoid creating a shadow? Can you shake that area of darkness that clings to you, always shaped like you, as if constantly to remind you of yourself? You can't. This shadow is doubt. And it goes wherever you go as long as you stay in the sun. And who wouldn't want to be in the sun? p. 103

„You want dry, yeastless factuality.“

—  Yann Martel, livro Life of Pi
Life of Pi (2001), Context: I know what you want. You want a story that won't surprise you. That will confirm what you already know. That won't make you see higher or further or differently. You want a flat story. An immobile story. You want dry, yeastless factuality. Chapter 99, p. 336

„Nothing beats reason for keeping tigers away. But be excessively reasonable and you risk throwing out the universe with the bathwater.“

—  Yann Martel, livro Life of Pi
Life of Pi (2001), Context: I applied my reason at every moment. Reason is excellent for getting food, clothing and shelter. Reason is the very best tool kit. Nothing beats reason for keeping tigers away. But be excessively reasonable and you risk throwing out the universe with the bathwater. Chapter 99, pp. 330–331
