  • ⋅In old age we are like a batch of letters that someone has sent. We are no longer in the past, we have arrived. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅It is as well perhaps that this is not the first time I have been swept off my feet. In the days of my blessed youth there were such occasions; in what young person's life do they not occur? /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅No worse fate can befall a young man or woman than becoming prematurely entrenched in prudence and negation. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅No, what I should really like to do right now, in the full blaze of lights, before this illustrious assembly, is to shower every one of you with gifts, with flowers, with offerings of poetry - to be young once more, to ride on the crest of the wave. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅There is nothing like being left alone again, to walk peacefully with oneself in the woods. To boil one's coffee and fill one's pipe, and to think idly and slowly as one does it. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅Today riches and honours have been lavished on me, but one gift has been lacking, the most important one of all, the only one that matters, the gift of youth. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅Were I more conversant with literature and its great names, I could go on quoting them ad infinitum and acknowledge my debt for the merit you have been generous enough to find in my work. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅When good befalls a man he calls it Providence, when evil fate. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅You are welcome to your intellectual pastimes and books and art and newspapers; welcome, too, to your bars and your whisky that only makes me ill. Here am I in the forest, quite content. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅In old age we are like a batch of letters that someone has sent. We are no longer in the past, we have arrived. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅Love is every bit as violent and dangerous as murder. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅But now it was spring again, and spring was almost unbearable for sensitive hearts. It drove creation to its utmost limits, it wafted its spice-laden breath even into the nostrils of the innocent. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅Do not forget, some give little, and it is much for them, others give all, and it costs them no effort; who then has given most? /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅But now the world breaks in on us, the world is shocked, the world looks upon our idyll as madness. The world maintains that no rational man or woman would have chosen this way of life - therefore, it is madness. Alone I confront them and tell them that nothing could be saner or truer! What do people really know about life? We fall in line, follow the pattern established by our mentors. Everything is based on assumptions; even time, space, motion, matter are nothing but supposition. The world has no new knowledge to im /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅I was conscious all the time that I was following mad whims without being able to do anything about it … . Despite my alienation from myself at that moment, and even though I was nothing but a battleground for invisible forces, I was aware of every detail of what was going on around me. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅Were I more conversant with literature and its great names, I could go on quoting them ad infinitum and acknowledge my debt for the merit you have been generous enough to find in my work /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅In my solitude, many miles from men and houses, I am in a childishly happy and carefree state of mind, which you are incapable of understanding unless someone explains it to you /Knut Hamsun

  • ⋅A few days back someone sent me two feathers. Two bird's feathers in a sheet of note-paper with a coronet, and fastened with a seal. Sent from a place a long way off; from one who need not have sent them back at all. That amused me too, those devilish green feathers. /Knut Hamsun
  • ⋅I suffered no pain, my hunger had taken the edge off; instead I felt pleasantly empty, untouched by everything around me and happy to be unseen by all. I put my legs up on the bench and leaned back, the best way to feel the true well-being of seclusion. There wasn't a cloud in my mind, nor did I feel any discomfort, and I hadn't a single unfulfilled desire or craving as far as my thought could reach. I lay with open eyes in a state of utter absence from myself and felt deliciously out of it. /Knut Hamsun
