Text Quotes
I guess you could say I’ve been writing all my life  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) Don’t you want to be alive before you die?  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) I never played inside as a kid - even in the rain I’d go out  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) It took me about three years to write About Grace. I wasn’t teaching two of those years, so I was working eight-hour days, five days a week. And it would include research and reading - it wasn’t just a blank page, laying down words.  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) War is a bazaar where lives are traded like any other commodity: chocolate or bullets or parachute silk.  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) For me, writing historical fiction is all about finding a balance between reading, traveling, looking, imagining, and dreaming.  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) Things hardly ever work on the first try. We’ll make another, a better one.  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) I do fish. I think there is a connection between thinking and fishing mostly because you spend a lot of time up to your waist in water without a whole lot to keep your mind busy.  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) I’ve been getting into Nick Drake lately, the folk singer. Sad, gorgeous stuff.  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) I guess whatever maturity is there may be there because I’ve been keeping a journal forever. In high school my friends would make fun of me - you’re doing your man diary again. So I was always trying to translate experience into words.  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) I write reviews of science books for the Boston Globe, so I like to give science books  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) It was not,’ said Jutta, reaching the limits of her French, ‘very easy to be good then  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) You know the greatest lesson of history? It’s that history is whatever the victors say it is...Whoever wins, that’s who decides the history.  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) To say a person is a happy person or an unhappy person is ridiculous. We are a thousand different kinds of people every hour.  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) Only Numbers. Pure math. You have to accustom yourself to thinking that way  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) Invisible Beasts is a strange and beautiful meditation on love and seeing, a hybrid of fantasy and field guide, novel and essay, treatise and fable. With one hand it offers a sad commentary on environmental degradation, while with the other it presents a bright, whimsical, and funny exploration of what it means to be human. It’s wonderfully written, crazily imagined, and absolutely original  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) Here’s what I mean by the miracle of language. When you’re falling into a good book, exactly as you might fall into a dream, a little conduit opens, a passageway between a reader’s heart and a writer’s, a connection that transcends the barriers of continents and generations and even death... And here’s the magic. You’re different. You can never go back to being exactly the same person you were before you disappeared into that book  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) My preference is for prose with more silence in it, language that contains more pockets of strangeness  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) You bury your childhood here and there. It waits for you, all your life, to come back and dig it up  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) It’s embarrassingly plain how inadequate language is  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) In our memories the stories of our lives defy chronology, resist transcription: past ambushes present, and future hurries into history  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) We live through books; we have adventures in them, we lead alternative lives through them. We expand our memories through them. And that sometimes art can offer us more intense experiences of the world than life itself can  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) The easier an experience, or the more entrenched, or the more familiar, the fainter our sensation of it becomes. This is true of chocolate and marriages and hometowns and narrative structures. Complexities wane, miracles become unremarkable, and if we’re not careful, pretty soon we’re gazing out at our lives as if through a burlap sack  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) I used to think... that I had to be careful with how much I lived. As if life was a pocketful of coins. You only got so much and you didn’t want to spend it all in one place... But now I know that life is the one thing in the world that never runs out. I might run out of mine, and you might run out of yours, but the world will never run out of life. And we’re all very lucky to be part of something like that  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) We all come into existence as a single cell, smaller than a speck of dust. Much smaller. Divide. Multiply. Add and subtract. Matter changes hands, atoms flow in and out, molecules pivot, proteins stitch together, mitochondria send out their oxidative dictates; we begin as a microscopic electrical swarm. The lungs the brain the heart. Forty weeks later, six trillion cells get crushed in the vise of our mother’s birth canal and we howl. Then the world starts in on us  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) Time is a slippery thing: lose hold of it once, and its string might sail out of your hands forever  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) Things hardly ever work on the first try. We’ll make another, a better one  (Anthony Doerr Quotes) So how, children, does the brain, which lives without a spark of light, build for us a world full of light?  (Anthony Doerr Quotes)
