  • ⋅I'm very militant, you know, in a quite way. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅The Quito telephone service is about as reliable as roulette. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅His life has been lived, so far, within narrow limits and he is quite naГЇve about most kinds of experience; he fears it and yet is wildly eager for it. To reassure himself, he converts it into epic myth as fast as it happens. He is forever play-acting. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅Bad writing is bad not just because the language is humdrum, but the quality of the observation is so poor. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅A minority is only thought of as a minority when it constitutes some kind of threat to the majority, real or imaginary. And no threat is ever quite imaginary. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅Every writer has certain subjects that they write about again and again, and . . . most people's books are just variations on certain themes. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅I am a camera, with its shutter open. Someday, all of this will be developed, printed, fixed. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅The talk of pale, burning-eyed students, anarchists and utopians all, over tea and cigarettes in a locked room long past midnight, is next morning translated, with the literalness of utter innocence, into the throwing of the bomb, the shouting of the proud slogan, the dragging away of the young dreamer-doer, still smiling, to the dungeon and the firing squad. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅Do you think it makes people nasty to be loved? You know it doesn’t! Then why should it make them nice to be loathed? While you’re being persecuted, you hate what’s happening to you, you hate the people who are making it happen; you’re in a world of hate. Why, you wouldn’t recognize love if you met it! You’d suspect love! You’d think there was something behind it—some motive—some trick. /Christopher Isherwood

  • ⋅But now isn’t simply now. Now is also a cold reminder: one whole day later than yesterday, one year later than last year. Every now is labeled with its date, rendering all past nows obsolete, until — later of sooner — perhaps — no, not perhaps — quite certainly: it will come. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅Waking up begins with saying am and now. That which has awoken then lies for a while staring up at the ceiling and down into itself until it has recognized I, and therefrom deduced I am, I am now. Here comes next, and is at least negatively reassuring; because here, this morning, is where it has expected to find itself: what’s called at home. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking. Recording the man shaving at the window opposite and the woman in the kimono washing her hair. Some day, all this will have to be developed, carefully printed, fixed. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅Think of two people, living together day after day, year after year, in this small space, standing elbow to elbow cooking at the same small stove, squeezing past each other on the narrow stairs, shaving in front of the same small bathroom mirror, constantly jogging, jostling, bumping against each other’s bodies by mistake or on purpose, sensually, aggressively, awkwardly, impatiently, in rage or in love – think what deep though invisible tracks they must leave, everywhere, behind them! /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅Only those who are capable of silliness can be called truly intelligent. /Christopher Isherwood
  • ⋅What it sees there isn't so much a face as the expression of a predicament. /Christopher Isherwood

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
