Quotes of Jules Verne

Знаменитый французский писатель-фантаст, автор более 100 романов, многие из предвидений которого впоследствии сбылись

  • ⋅Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅Everybody knows that the great reversed triangle of land, with its base in the north and its apex in the south, which is called India, embraces fourteen hundred thousand square miles, upon which is spread unequally a population of one hundred and eighty millions of souls. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅Liberty is worth paying for. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅On the morrow the horizon was covered with clouds- a thick and impenetrable curtain between earth and sky, which unhappily extended as far as the Rocky Mountains. It was a fatality! /Jules Verne
  • ⋅Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth. /Jules Verne
  • Реклама:
  • ⋅The Nautilus was piercing the water with its sharp spur, after having accomplished nearly ten thousand leagues in three months and a half, a distance greater than the great circle of the earth. Where were we going now, and what was reserved for the future? /Jules Verne
  • ⋅The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅We may brave human laws, but we cannot resist natural ones. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅We were alone. Where, I could not say, hardly imagine. All was black, and such a dense black that, after some minutes, my eyes had not been able to discern even the faintest glimmer. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅Whatever one man is capable of conceiving, other men will be able to achieve. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅He believed in it, as certain good women believe in the leviathan--by faith, not by reason. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅The resolutions passed at the last meeting produced a great effect out of doors. Timid people took fright at the idea of a shot weighing 20,000 pounds being launched into space; they asked what cannon could ever transmit a sufficient velocity to such a mighty mass. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅To those who were not familiar with the motions of the moon, they demonstrated that she possesses two distinct motions, the first being that of rotation upon her axis, the second being that of revolution round the earth, accomplishing both together in an equal period of time, that is to say, in twenty-seven and one-third days. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅Ah, pierce me 100 times with your needles fine and I will thank you 100 times, Saint Morphine, you who Aeseulapus has made a God. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅Was I to believe him in earnest in his intention to penetrate to the centre of this massive globe? Had I been listening to the mad speculations of a lunatic, or to the scientific conclusions of a lofty genius? Where did truth stop? Where did error begin? /Jules Verne
  • ⋅This forcible abduction, so roughly carried out, was accomplished with the rapidity of lightning. I shivered all over. Whom had we to deal with? No doubt some new sort of pirates, who explored the sea in their own way. Hardly had the narrow panel closed upon me, when I was enveloped in darkness. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅It was all very well for an Englishman like Mr. Fogg to make the tour of the world with a carpet-bag; a lady could not be expected to travel comfortably under such conditions. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅He rose at thirteen minutes to one, and directed his steps towards the large hall, a sumptuous apartment adorned with lavishly-framed paintings. A flunkey handed him an uncut Times, which he proceeded to cut with a skill which betrayed familiarity with this delicate operation. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅On the 31st of October, at ten o'clock in the morning, the troop disembarked on the quays of Tampa Town; and one may imagine the activity which pervaded that little town, whose population was thus doubled in a single day. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅The way of describing this unlooked-for scene, the history of the patriot ship, told at first so coldly, and the emotion with which this strange man pronounced the last words, the name of the Avenger, the significance of which could not escape me, all impressed itself deeply on my mind. My eyes did not leave the Captain, who, with his hand stretched out to sea, was watching with a glowing eye the glorious wreck. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅It swam crossways in the direction of the Nautilus with great speed, watching us with its enormous staring green eyes. Its eight arms, or rather feet, fixed to its head, that have given the name of cephalopod to these animals, were twice as long as its body, and were twisted like the furies' hair. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅How much further can we go? What are the final frontiers in this quest for travel? Will humankind only be satisfied when journeys into space become readily available and affordable? /Jules Verne
  • ⋅Travel enables us to enrich our lives with new experiences, to enjoy and to be educated, to learn respect for foreign cultures, to establish friendships, and above all to contribute to international cooperation and peace throughout the world. /Jules Verne

  • ⋅I saw the world. I learnt of new cultures. I flew across an ocean. I wore women's clothing. Made a friend. Fell in love. Who cares if I lost a wager? Queen Victoria: I do! I've got 20 quid riding on you /Jules Verne
  • ⋅There is no more sagacious animal than the Icelandic horse. He is stopped by neither snow, nor storm, nor impassable roads, nor rocks, glaciers, or anything. He is courageous, sober, and surefooted. He never makes a false step, never shies. If there is a river or fjord to cross (and we shall meet with many) you will see him plunge in at once, just as if he were amphibious, and gain the opposite bank. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅Man is never perfect nor contented. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅Solitude, isolation, are painful things, and beyond human endurance. /Jules Verne
  • ⋅However, everything has an end, everything passes away, even the hunger of people who have not eaten /Jules Verne
  • ⋅But to find, all at once, right before your eyes, that the impossible had been mysteriously achieved by man himself: this staggers the mind! /Jules Verne
