Text Quotes
You can survive with anger, but you can’t live with it forever  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) There’s a tendency, especially among revolutionaries, to only show the good side of yourself and then when you come to power, the bad side comes out.  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) I think to be in exile is a curse, and you need to turn it into a blessing. You’ve been thrown into exile to die, really, to silence you so that your voice cannot come home. And so my whole life has been dedicated to saying, ‘I will not be silenced.’  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) Mining created Chile. The story of men who go down into the mountain and chip away at minerals in the darkness and then suffer an accident that leaves them at the mercy of that darkness is part of the DNA of Chile, an integral part of the country’s history  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) You can survive with anger, but you can’t live with it forever  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) We live in the age of the refugee, the age of the exile  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) Responsibility without power, the fate of the secretary through the ages  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) Most writers who leave their country physically have already left it mentally and emotionally  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) Those who have never suffered the iniquities of exile cannot possibly understand the significance, the gravitas, of a mattress  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) Torture presupposes, it requires, it craves the abrogation of our capacity to imagine others suffering, dehumanizing them so much that their pain is not our pain. It demands this of the torturer, placing the victim outside and beyond any form of compassion or empathy, but also demands of everyone else the same distancing, the same numbness  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) Life may unfold chronologically for the body and for bureaucracies that keep track of such things as births, marriages, deaths, visas, tax returns, expulsions, and identity cards, but memory does not play this game in quite the same way, always manages to confound the desire for tidiness  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) Beware of turning into the enemy you most fear. All it takes is to lash out violently at someone who has done you some grievous harm, proclaiming that only your pain matters in this world. More than against that person’s body, you will then, at that moment, be committing a crime against your own imagination  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) You want to free the world, free humanity, from oppression? Look inside, look sideways, look at the hidden violence of language. Never forget that language is where the other, parallel violence, the cruelty exercised on the body, originates  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) I’m the most communal person that exists and a very solitary person. So I think writing is a form of getting to the community and being alone, and it’s the best of both possible worlds  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) I think to be in exile is a curse, and you need to turn it into a blessing. Youve been thrown into exile to die, really, to silence you so that your voice cannot come home. And so my whole life has been dedicated to saying, I will not be silenced  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) There’s a tendency, especially among revolutionaries, to only show the good side of yourself and then when you come to power, the bad side comes out  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes) We can live with lots of things, but we can’t live without imagination, we can’t live without hope  (Ariel Dorfman Quotes)
