Words are much better at relating emotions and thoughts  (Yann Martel Quotes) ..the most dangerous animal in a zoo is Man  (Yann Martel Quotes) I’m happy pretty well anywhere on this big, beautiful planet  (Yann Martel Quotes) If I didn’t have children, I think my life would be a failure  (Yann Martel Quotes) If Christ spent an anguished night in prayer, if He burst out from the Cross, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ then surely we are also permitted doubt. But we must move on. To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation  (Yann Martel Quotes) For the first time I noticed - as I would notice repeatedly during my ordeal, between one throe of agony and the next - that my suffering was taking place in a grand setting. I saw my suffering for what it was, finite and insignificant, and I was still. My suffering did not fit anywhere, I realized. And I could accept this. It was all right  (Yann Martel Quotes) I couldn’t get Him out of my head. Still can’t. I spent three solid days thinking about Him. The more He bothered me, the less I coul forget Him. And the more I learned about Him, the less I wanted to leave Him  (Yann Martel Quotes) Just beyond the ticket booth Father had painted on a wall in bright red letters the question: DO YOU KNOW WHICH IS THE MOST DANGEROUS ANIMAL IN THE ZOO? An arrow pointed to a small curtain. There were so many eager, curious hands that pulled at the curtain that we had to replace it regularly. Behind it was a mirror  (Yann Martel Quotes) Japanese-owned cargo ship Tsimtsum, flying Panamanian flag, sank July 2nd, 1977, in Pacific, four days out of Manila. Am in lifeboat. Pi Patel my name. Have some food, some water, but Bengal tiger a serious problem. Please advise family in Winnepeg, Canada. Any help very much appreciated. Thank you  (Yann Martel Quotes) I have a fierce will to live. Others fight a little, then lose hope. Still others - and I am one of those - never give up. We fight and fight and fight. We fight no matter the cost of battle, the losses we take, the improbability of success. We fight to the very end  (Yann Martel Quotes) I wept heartily over this poor little deceased soul. It was the first sentient being I had ever killed. I was now a killer. I was now as guilty as Cain. I was sixteen years old, a harmless boy, bookish and religious, and now I had blood on my hands. It’s a terrible burden to carry. All sentient life is sacred  (Yann Martel Quotes) It is a vast country, so that inspires you. It’s also the greatest hotel on earth: It welcomes people from everywhere. It’s a good country to write from because in many ways Canada is the world  (Yann Martel Quotes) Colonialism is a terrible bane for a people upon whom it is imposed, but a blessing for a language. English’s drive to exploit the new and the alien, its zeal in robbing words from other languages, its incapacity to feel qualms over the matter, its museum-size overabundance of vocabulary, it shoulder-shrug approach to spelling, its don’t-worry-be-happy concern for grammar-the result was a language whose colour and wealth Henry loved  (Yann Martel Quotes) Despair was a heavy blackness that let no light in or out. It was a hell beyond expression. I thank God it always passed  (Yann Martel Quotes) Music moves me - duh - and that is like having a window opening on a heightened reality, but the effect is fleeting: When the music ends, the magic, the uplifting, vanishes and the window slams shut. Words, on the other hand, by the nature of how they work, emotions evoked by dint of carefully laid out thoughts, have a more lingering effect  (Yann Martel Quotes) Slice a pear and you will find that its flesh is incandescent white. It glows with inner light. Those who carry a knife and a pear are never afraid of the dark.  (Yann Martel Quotes) We always see the Holocaust in terms of black-and-white images, barking Germans, cowering Jews. We know very well-known fixed places like Auschwitz, Birkenau, Treblinka, and Beltzec. Instead, war can live in a couple having a spat, when we say, That was a real war. We very rarely have the Holocaust live in the terms of today. And I think that’s a problem, because it becomes ancient history.  (Yann Martel Quotes) Repetition is important in the training not only of animals but also of humans. Yann Martel in Life of Pi, Page 25  (Yann Martel Quotes) That’s what fiction is about, isn’t it, the selective transforming of reality? The twisting of it to bring out its essence?  (Yann Martel Quotes) I challenge anyone to understand Islam, its spirit, and not to love it. It is a beautiful religion of brotherhood and devotion.  (Yann Martel Quotes) I go to mass every Sunday, but love going to mosques too. Muslims pray in a beautiful way.  (Yann Martel Quotes) I love cinema. I think the risk of the aesthetics being fixed is compensated by other advantages. Cinema is visually powerful, it is a complete experience, reaches different audience. It’s something I really like. I like movies.  (Yann Martel Quotes) Why do people move? What makes them uproot and leave everything they’ve known for a great unknown beyond the horizon? ... The answer is the same the world over: people move in the hope of a better life.  (Yann Martel Quotes) In all big cities the style of life is the same. Same endless array of restaurants; same big museums with the usual suspects; same anonymity, which can be thrilling when you’re young but which I found got tiresome.  (Yann Martel Quotes) We are all born like Catholics, aren’t weÂ-in limbo, without religion, until some figure introduces us to God?  (Yann Martel Quotes) Life is a peephole, a single tiny entry onto a vastness--how can I not dwell on this brief, cramped view of things? This peephole is all I’ve got!  (Yann Martel Quotes) I’m not a consumer. I hate buying clothes. I don’t have a mobile. I just don’t need things. I don’t like things.  (Yann Martel Quotes) Just as music is noise that makes sense, a painting is color that makes sense, so a story is life that makes sense.  (Yann Martel Quotes) I love Canada...It is a great country much too cold for good sense, inhabited by compassionate, intelligent people with bad hairdos.  (Yann Martel Quotes) Words aren’t very good at describing complicated, strange visual things. You can try, and the reader will have some sort of image in their mind, but words aren’t good at that.  (Yann Martel Quotes)
