All I say is: Let us leave les folles alone; let’s just leave them be. Don’t judge them. You are not superior to them - don’t put them down  (John Irving Quotes) Lilly was not crazy. She left a serious suicide note. ‘Sorry,’ said the note. ‘Just not big enough  (John Irving Quotes) And when you love a book, commit one glorious sentence of it-perhaps your favorite sentence-to memory. That way you won’t forget the language of the story that moved you to tears  (John Irving Quotes) A novel is a piece of architecture. It’s not random wallowings or confessional diaries. It’s a building-it has to have walls and floors and the bathrooms have to work  (John Irving Quotes) When people say that German or any other language is romantic... all they really mean is that they’ve enjoyed a past in the language  (John Irving Quotes) Because abortions are illegal, women who need and want them have no choice in the matter, and you-because you know how to perform them-have no choice, either  (John Irving Quotes) Homer and Candy passed by the empty and brightly lit dispensary; they peeked into Nurse Angela’s empty office. Homer knew better than to peek into the delivery room when the light was on. From the dormitory, they could hear Dr. Larch’s reading voice. Although Candy held tightly to his hand, Homer was inclined to hurry - in order not to miss the bedtime story  (John Irving Quotes) So, you see, it’s a real chore for me to write a book review because it’s like a contest. It’s like I’m writing that book review for every bad book reviewer I’ve ever known and it’s a way of saying [thrusts a middle finger into the air] this is how you ought to do it. I like to rub their noses in it  (John Irving Quotes) I have no respect for the right-to-life position. But when you legislate personal belief, you’re in violation of freedom of religion. The Catholic Church may espouse its opinion on abortion to the members of its congregation. But they are in violation of separation of church and state when they try to proselytize their abortion politics on people who are not Catholics  (John Irving Quotes) Almost everyone is dying to leave home, eventually; and almost everyone needs to  (John Irving Quotes) And I don’t want to begin something, I don’t want to write that first sentence until all the important connections in the novel are known to me. As if the story has already taken place, and it’s my responsibility to put it in the right order to tell it to you.  (John Irving Quotes) Patriotism is not necessarily defined as blind devotion to a president’s particular agenda - and that to dispute a presidential policy is not necessarily anti-American.  (John Irving Quotes) With every book, you go back to school. You become a student. You become an investigative reporter. You spend a little time learning what it’s like to live in someone else’s shoes.  (John Irving Quotes) We permit bad taste in this country. In fact, we even encourage it - and reward it in all manner of ways.  (John Irving Quotes) As it was, things went from bad to worse, as they often will when amateurs are involved in an activity that they perform in bad temper ” or in a hurry.  (John Irving Quotes) I still believe in getting married in churches and baptizing children. I go through those motions.  (John Irving Quotes) Kids are beautiful, man. And they know much more than grownups think they know. Kids are just perfect people until grownups get their hands on them.  (John Irving Quotes) It’s not right to hurt or deceive someone who’s already been hurt and deceived  (John Irving Quotes) If I have any advantage, maybe, as a writer, it is that I don’t think I’m very interesting. I mean, beginning a novel with the last sentence is a pretty plodding way to spend your life.  (John Irving Quotes) Being afraid you’ll look like a coward is the worst reason for doing anything  (John Irving Quotes) I had a particular affinity for wrestling, and it did have a lot to do with being small and being combative - and being angry. And when you’re small and you don’t back down, you get in a lot of fights.  (John Irving Quotes) ¦there is no nakedness that compares to being naked in front of someone for the first time.  (John Irving Quotes) I’m not writing non-fiction. I don’t feel anything about me as a kid was unique. Except that I had more interest in being alone and using my imagination.  (John Irving Quotes) I’m not a movie person. They’re collaborations of the worst kind. You must compromise yourself to many interests that are venal and crass and do not have your best interests at heart.  (John Irving Quotes) You don’t want to dwell on your enemies, you know. I basically feel so superior to my critics for the simple reason that they haven’t done what I do. Most book reviewers haven’t written 11 novels. Many of them haven’t written one.  (John Irving Quotes) I believe in rules of behavior, and I’m quite interested in stories about the consequences of breaking those rules.  (John Irving Quotes) Titles are important; I have them before I have books that belong to them. I have last chapters in my mind before I see first chapters, too. I usually begin with endings, with a sense of aftermath, of dust settling, of epilogue.  (John Irving Quotes) Of all the things you choose in life, you don’t get to choose what your nightmares are. You don’t pick them; they pick you.  (John Irving Quotes) I grew up in a family where, through my teenage years, I was expected to go to church on Sunday. It wasn’t terribly painful.  (John Irving Quotes) I believe you have constructive accidents en route through a novel only because you have mapped a clear way. If you have confidence that you have a clear direction to take, you always have confidence to explore other ways; if they prove to be mere digressions, you’ll recognize that and make the necessary revisions.  (John Irving Quotes)
