„Pořád si říkám zase a zase že bych měl něco dělat, ale pak zapomeu anebo možná je to jenom snadnější nedělat to, co říkám, že bych měl dělat.“

„Inteligence je rozhodně jedním z největších darů. Ale příliš často hledání pravdy vytlačí hledání lásky...“

„Jedu teď dolů po pohyblivých schodech. Když budu jenom stát, dojedu až dolů, ale když začnu běžet, třeba aspoň vydržím na jednom místě. Důležité je pořád upalovat nahoru, ať se děje, co se děje.“

„I don’t know what’s worse: to not know what you are and be happy, or to become what you’ve always wanted to be, and feel alone.“ Flowers for Algernon

„Thank God for books and music and things I can think about.“ Flowers for Algernon

„Now I understand that one of the important reasons for going to college and getting an education is to learn that the things you've believed in all your life aren't true, and that nothing is what it appears to be.“ Flowers for Algernon


„I am afraid. Not of life, or death, or nothingness, but of wasting it as if I had never been.“ Flowers for Algernon

„Its easy to make frends if you let pepul laff at you.“ Flowers for Algernon

„That's the thing about human life--there is no control group, no way to ever know how any of us would have turned out if any variables had been changed.“ Flowers for Algernon

„How strange it is that people of honest feelings and sensibilty, who would not take advantage of a man born without arms or legs or eyes—how such people think nothing of abusing a man with low intelligence.“ Flowers for Algernon


„... Don't feel sorry for me. I'm glad I had a second chance in life like you said to be smart because I learned a lot of things that I never knew were in this world, and I'm grateful I saw it even for a little bit.“ Flowers for Algernon

„Intelligence is one of the greatest human gifts. But all too often a search for knowledge drives out the search for love. This is something else I've discovered for myself very recently. I present it to you as a hypothesis: Intelligence without the ability to give and receive affection leads to mental and moral breakdown, to neurosis, and possibly even psychosis. And I say that the mind absorbed in and involved in itself as a self-centered end, to the exclusion of human relationships, can only lead to violence and pain.“ Flowers for Algernon

„Punctuation, is? fun!“ Flowers for Algernon

„A child may not know how to feed itself, or what to eat, yet it knows hunger.“ Flowers for Algernon
