Quotes of Philip Roth

Американский писатель

  • ⋅Just like those who are incurably ill, the aged know everything about their dying except exactly when. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅I cannot and do not live in the world of discretion, not as a writer, anyway. I would prefer to, I assure you -- it would make life easier. But discretion is, unfortunately, not for novelists. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅Obviously the facts are never just coming at you but are incorporated by an imagination that is formed by your previous experience. Memories of the past are not memories of facts but memories of your imaginings of the facts. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅Undermining experience, embellishing experience, rearranging and enlarging experience into a species of mythology. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅To become a celebrity is to become a brand name. There is Ivory Soap, Rice Krispies, and Philip Roth. Ivory is the soap that floats; Rice Krispies the breakfast cereal that goes snap-crackle-pop; Philip Roth the Jew who masturbates with a piece of liver. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅A Jewish man with parents alive is a fifteen-year-old boy, and will remain a fifteen-year-old boy until they die! /Philip Roth
  • Реклама:
  • ⋅A Jew without Jews, without Judaism, without Zionism, without Jewishness, without a temple or an army or even a pistol, a Jew clearly without a home, just the object itself, like a glass or an apple. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress. /Philip Roth

  • ⋅Life is just a short period of time in which you are alive. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅A writer has to be driven crazy to help him to see. A writer needs his poisons. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅People are unjust to anger - it can be enlivening and a lot of fun. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅Unless one is inordinately fond of subordination, one is always at war. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅Literature isn't a moral beauty contest. Its power arises from the authority and audacity with which the impersonation is pulled off; the belief it inspires is what counts. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅I write fiction and I'm told it's autobiography, I write autobiography and I'm told it's fiction, so since I'm so dim and they're so smart, let them decide what it is or it isn't. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅All that we don't know is astonishing. Even more astonishing is what passes for knowing. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅History... is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅With the draft, everybody was involved. Everybody was fodder. When you got to be 21, 22 and graduated from college, for two years your life stopped. If you had been running in the direction of your life, you had to stop and do this other thing which was, if not menacing, just plain boring. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅Fear tends to manifest itself much more quickly than greed, so volatile markets tend to be on the downside. In up markets, volatility tends to gradually decline. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅When you publish a book, it's the world's book. The world edits it. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅Sheer Playfulness and Deadly Seriousness are my closest friends. /Philip Roth
  • ⋅Obviously the facts are never just coming at you but are incorporated by an imagination that is formed by your previous experience. Memories of the past are not memories of facts but memories of your imaginings of the facts. /Philip Roth
