Citáty Anthony Doerr


„Bohyně dějin shlíží na zemi. Jedině skrze ten nejžhavější oheň je možno dosáhnout očištění. Vidí les umírajících slunečnic.“ All the Light We Cannot See

„Copak nechcete žít, než umřete?“


„Open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever.“ All the Light We Cannot See

„But it is not bravery; I have no choice. I wake up and live my life. Don't you do the same?“ All the Light We Cannot See

„Don’t you want to be alive before you die?“ All the Light We Cannot See

„So how, children, does the brain, which lives without a spark of light, build for us a world full of light?“ All the Light We Cannot See

„Time is a slippery thing: lose hold of it once, and its string might sail out of your hands forever.“ All the Light We Cannot See

„You know the greatest lesson of history? It’s that history is whatever the victors say it is. That’s the lesson. Whoever wins, that’s who decides the history. We act in our own self-interest. Of course we do. Name me a person or a nation who does not. The trick is figuring out where your interests are.“ All the Light We Cannot See


„I have been feeling very clearheaded lately and what I want to write about today is the sea. It contains so many colors. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of clouds are dragging across it, and patches of sunlight are touching down everywhere. White strings of gulls drag over it like beads.

It is my favorite thing, I think, that I have ever seen. Sometimes I catch myself staring at it and forget my duties. It seems big enough to contain everything anyone could ever feel.“
All the Light We Cannot See

„All your life you wait, and then it finally comes, and are you ready?“ All the Light We Cannot See

„When I lost my sight, Werner, people said I was brave. When my father left, people said I was brave. But it is not bravery; I have no choice. I wake up and live my life. Don't you do the same?“ All the Light We Cannot See

„We rise again in the grass. In the flowers. In songs.“ All the Light We Cannot See


„How do you ever know for certain that you are doing the right thing?“ All the Light We Cannot See

„We all come into existence as a single cell, smaller than a speck of dust. Much smaller. Divide. Multiply. Add and subtract. Matter changes hands, atoms flow in and out, molecules pivot, proteins stitch together, mitochondria send out their oxidative dictates; we begin as a microscopic electrical swarm. The lungs the brain the heart. Forty weeks later, six trillion cells get crushed in the vise of our mother’s birth canal and we howl. Then the world starts in on us.“ All the Light We Cannot See

„What do we call visible light? We call it color. But the electromagnetic spectrum runs to zero in one direction and infinity in the other, so really, children, mathematically, all of light is invisible.“ All the Light We Cannot See

„A real diamond is never perfect.“ All the Light We Cannot See
