Citáty Hermann Bahr


„Génius je ten, koho napadne jako prvního něco zcela samozřejmého.“

„Jistá míra neinformovanosti o druhém je předpokladem, aby dva lidé zůstali přáteli.“


„It comforted him because it could not be called suffering if it was a sign of Art.“

„So he explored, explored within himself, scanning himself with a lamp, as if it were not himself at all but some strange monster that he had been commanded to guard.“

„As long as he deceived himself about the truth, he could blame fortune and have confidence in the future. Now the clouds of madness were closing round his mind.“

„Bondage And Service - that was what they all demanded and from everyone. This craving to find themselves in another, to subjugate and appropriate foreign territory, to create a new field for their own will in a second body, foreign flesh for their own soul; this greedy, consuming hunger devoured every other desire, and they called it friendship!“

„Words are not in the power of men; men are in the power of words. Every time we open our mouths, a thousand dead men speak through us.“

„Man screams from the depths of his soul; the whole era becomes a single, piercing shriek. Art also screams, into the deep darkness, screams for help, screams for the spirit. This is Expressionism.“

„... what we say or do is unimportant; it is merely semblance, beyond which our real life lies concealed... We know this better than we can prove, but in order to prove it we have to express it, and on the path to speech the essential somehow gets lost.“
