I sometimes think that rich me...

I sometimes think that rich men belong to another nationality entirely, no matter what their actual nationality happens to be. The nationality of the rich.

It is impossible not to notice...

It is impossible not to notice that our world is tormented by failure, hate, guilt, and fear.

William Saroyan 150 quotes

Lionel whispered because he wa...

Lionel whispered because he was under the impression that it was out of respect for books, not consideration for readers.

William Saroyan 150 quotes

We didn't say anything because...

We didn't say anything because there was such an awful lot to say, and no language to say it in.

I am interested in madness. I ...

I am interested in madness. I believe it is the biggest thing in the human race, and the most constant. How do you take away from a man his madness without also taking away his identity? Are we sure it is desirable for a man's spirit not to be at war with itself, or that it is better to be serene and ready to go to dinner than to be excited and unwilling to stop for a cup of coffee, even?

One day in the afternoon of the world, glum death will come and sit in you, and when you get up to walk, you will be as glum as death, but if you're lucky, this will only make the fun better and the love greater.

People is all everything is, all it has ever been, all it can ever be.

William Saroyan 150 quotes

Seek goodness everywhere, and ...

Seek goodness everywhere, and when it is found, bring it out of its hiding-place and let it be free and unashamed. Place in matter and in flesh the least of the values, for these are things that hold death and must pass away. Discover in all things that which shines and is beyond corruption. Encourage virtue in whatever heart it may have been driven into secrecy and sorrow by the shame and terror of the world.

Live, for this is the time of your life.

Armenag Saroyan was the failed poet, the failed Presbyterian preacher, the failed American, the failed theological student.

Armenag Saroyan. A good man of whom the worst that anybody was willing to say, was that he was too good for this world.

A man's ethnic identity has more to do with a personal awareness than with geography.

I don't think my writing is sentimental, although it is a very sentimental thing to be a human being.

William Saroyan 150 quotes

Standing at the edge of our ci...

Standing at the edge of our city, a man could feel that we had made this place of streets and dwellings in the stillness of the desert, and that we had done a brave thing... Or a man could feel that we had made this city in the desert and that it was a fake thing and that our lives were empty lives, and that we were the contemporaries of the jack rabbits.

William Saroyan 150 quotes

Everything and everybody is so...

Everything and everybody is sooner or later identified, defined, and put in perspective. The truth as always is simultaneously better and worse than what the popular myth-making has it.

William Saroyan 150 quotes

The people you hate, well, thi...

The people you hate, well, this is the question about such people: why do you hate them?

Whoever the kid had been, whoe...

Whoever the kid had been, whoever had the grand attitude, has finally heeded the admonishment of parents, teachers, governments, religions, and the law: 'You just change your attitude now please, young man.' This transformation in kids - from flashing dragonflies, so to say, to sticky water-surface worms slowly slipping downstream - is noticed with pride by society and with mortification by God, which is a fantastic way of saying I don't like to see kids throw away their truth just because it isn't worth a dime in the

I saw rich beggars and poor beggars, proud beggars and humble beggars, fat beggars and thin beggars, healthy beggars and sick beggars, whole beggars and crippled beggars, wise beggars and stupid beggars. I saw amateur beggars and professional beggars. A professional beggar is a beggar who begs for a living.

Remember that every man is a variation of yourself
