Quotes of Milan Kundera

Чешский писатель, прозаик, драматург, поэт, эссеист

  • ⋅The light that radiates from the great novels time can never dim, for human existence is perpetually being forgotten by man and thus the novelists discoveries, however old they may be, will never cease to astonish. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅The word change, so dear to our Europe, has been given a new meaning: it no longer means a new stage of coherent development (as it was understood by Vico, Hegel or Marx), but a shift from one side to another, from front to back, from the back to the left, from the left to the front (as understood by designers dreaming up the fashion for the next season). /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Without the meditative background that is criticism, works become isolated gestures, historical accidents, soon forgotten. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Let us consider the critic, therefore, as a discoverer of discoveries. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Happiness is the longing for repetition. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅The serial number of a human specimen is the face, that accidental and unrepeatable combination of features. It reflects neither character nor soul, nor what we call the self. The face is only the serial number of a specimen. /Milan Kundera
  • Реклама:
  • ⋅True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to the fore only when its recipient has no power. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅All great novels, all true novels, are bisexual. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Eroticism is like a dance: one always leads the other. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅We live everything as it comes, without warning, like an actor going on cold. And what can life be worth if the first rehearsal for life is life itself? That is why life is always a sketch. No sketch is not quite the right word, because a sketch is an outline of something, the groundwork for a picture, whereas the sketch that is our life is a sketch of nothing, an outline with no picture. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Mysticism and exaggeration go together. A mystic must not fear ridicule if he is to push all the way to the limits of humility or the limits of delight. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅I think, therefore I am is the statement of an intellectual who underrates toothaches. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅The sound of laughter is like the vaulted dome of a temple of happiness. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅For a novelist, a given historic situation is an anthropologic laboratory in which he explores his basic question: What is human existence? /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅The present era grabs everything that was ever written in order to transform it into films, TV programs; or cartoons. What is essential in a novel is precisely what can only be expressed in a novel, and so every adaptation contains nothing but the non-essential. If a person is still crazy enough to write novels nowadays and wants to protect them, he has to write them in such a way that they cannot be adapted, in other words, in such a way that they cannot be retold. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅A route differs from a road not only because it is solely intended for vehicles, but also because it is merely a line that connects one point with another. A route has no meaning in itself; its meaning derives entirely from the two points that it connects. A road is a tribute to space. Every stretch of road has meaning in itself and invites us to stop. A route is the triumphant devaluation of space, which thanks to it has been reduced to a mere obstacle to human movement and a waste of time. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Nothing is more repugnant to me than brotherly feelings grounded in the common baseness people see in one another. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅The reign of imagagology begins where history ends. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Listening to a news broadcast is like smoking a cigarette and crushing the butt in the ashtray. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Nudity is the uniform of the other side... nudity is a shroud. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Optimism is the opium of the people. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅No great movement designed to change the world can bear to be laughed at or belittled. Mockery is a rust that corrodes all it touches. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅We can never establish with certainty what part of our relations with others is the result of our emotions -- love, antipathy, charity, or malice -- and what part is predetermined by the constant power play among individuals. /Milan Kundera

  • ⋅The basis of shame is not some personal mistake of ours, but the ignominy, the humiliation we feel that we must be what we are without any choice in the matter, and that this humiliation is seen by everyone. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Solitude: a sweet absence of looks. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅A wave of anger washed over me, anger against myself, at my age at the time, that stupid lyrically age, when a man is too great a riddle to himself to be interested in the riddles outside himself and when other people are mere walking mirrors in which he is amazed to find his own emotions, his own worth. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅A novel that does not uncover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral. Knowledge is the novel's only morality. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅A worker may be the hammer's master, but the hammer still prevails. A tool knows exactly how it is meant to be handled, while the user of the tool can only have an approximate idea. /Milan Kundera
  • ⋅Hate traps us by binding us too tightly to our adversary. /Milan Kundera
