Text Quotes
Human beings are repetitive animals. All meaning is generated through repetition  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) That is the strangeness of language: it crosses the boundaries of the body, is at once inside and outside, and it sometimes happens that we don’t notice the threshold has been crossed  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Our memory fragments don’t have any coherence until they’re imagined in words. Time is a property of language, of syntax, and tense  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) I’ve always thought of wholeness and integration as necessary myths. We’re gragmented beings who cement ourselves together, but there are always cracks. Living with the cracks is part of being, well, reasonably healthy  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) That night as I lay in bed, I thought of several things I could have said and mourned the fact that my wit usually bloomed late, peaking when it no longer mattered, during the solitary hours close to midnight  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) The truth is that personality inevitably bleeds into all forms of our intellectual life. We all extrapolate from our own lives in order to understand the world  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Dreams are stories made by and for the dreamer, and each dreamer has his own folds to open and knots to untie  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) The faculty of memory cannot be separated from the imagination. They go hand in hand. To one degree or another, we all invent our personal pasts. And for most of us those pasts are built from emotionally colored memories  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) We read each other through our eyes, and anatomically they are an extension of our brains. When we catch someone’s eye, we look into a mind  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Every sickness has an alien quality, a feeling of invasion and loss of control that is evident in the language we use about it  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) I remember thinking how easy it is to speak in clichés, to steal a line from pulp fiction and let it fall. We can only hover around the inexpressible with our words anyway, and there is comfort in saying what we have heard before  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) A book is a collaboration between the one who reads and what is read and, at its best, that coming together is a love story like any other  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) There is no future without a past, because what is to be cannot be imagined except as a form of repetition  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) There is this assumption that much of what I write is about my life, and that simply is not true  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Intellectual curiosity about one’s own illness is certainly born of a desire for mastery. If I couldn’t cure myself, perhaps I could at least begin to understand myself  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) The fictive is an emormous territory it turns out, its boundaries vague, and there is little certainty about where it begins and ends  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Not telling is just as interesting as telling I have found. Why speech, that short verbal journey from inside to outside can be excrutiating under certain circumstances is fascinating  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) The recollections of an older man are different from those of a younger man. What seemed vital at forty may lose its significance at seventy. We manufacture stories, after all, from the fleeting sensory material that bombards us at every instant, a fragmented series of pictures, conversations, odors, and the touch of things and people. We delete most of it to live with some semblance of order, and the reshuffling of memory goes on until we die  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Memory offers up its gifts only when jogged by something in the present. It isn’t a storehouse of fixed images and words, but a dynamic associative network in the brain that is never quiet and is subject to revision each time we retrieve an old picture or old words  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Dreaming is another form of thinking, more concrete, more economical, more visual, and often more emotional than the thoughts of the day, but a thinking through of the day, nevertheless  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) I’ve often thought that one of us is what we imagine, that each of us normalizes the terrible strangeness of inner life with a variety of convenient fictions  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) There’s a phenomenology of being sick, one that depends on temperament, personal history, and the culture which we live in  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Reading is perception as translation. The inert signs of an alphabet become living meanings in the mind  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) Time is not outside us, but inside. Only we live with past, present, and future, and the present is too brief to experience anyway; it is retained afterward and then it is either codified or it slips into amnesia  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) I will turn human anatomy into roses and stars and sea. I will dissect the beloveds body in metaphor  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes) There is no reason we should expect young children to enter the nocturnal darkness of sleep and dreams without help  (Siri Hustvedt Quotes)
