Citáty John Boyne


„Neexistuje něco, jako dobrý voják.“ Chlapec v pruhovaném pyžamu

„There's things that happen in a person's life that are so scorched in the memory and burned into the heart that there's no forgetting them.“


„Sitting around miserable all day won't make you any happier.“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„... Despite the mayhem that followed, Bruno found that he was still holding Shmuel's hand in his own and nothing in the world would have persuaded him to let go.“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„What exactly was the difference? He wondered to himself. And who decided which people wore the striped pajamas and which people wore the uniforms?“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„The thing about exploring is that you have to know whether the thing you've found is worth finding. Some things are just sitting there, minding their own business, waiting to be discovered. Like America. And other things are probably better off left alone. Like a dead mouse at the back of the cupboard.“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„Don't make it worse by thinking it's more painful than it actually is.“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„Bruno: We're not supposed to be friends, you and me. We're meant to be enemies. Did you know that?“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas


„He looked down and did something quite out of character for him: he took hold of Shmuel's tiny hand in his and squeezed it tightly.
"You're my best friend, Shmuel," he said. "My best friend for life.“
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„... only the victims and survivors can truly comprehend the awfulness of that time and place; the rest of us live on the other side of the fence, staring through from our own comfortable place, trying in our own clumsy ways to make sense of it all.“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„Their lost voices Must continue to be heard.“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„In his heart, he knew that there was no reason to be impolite to someone, even if they did work for you. There was such a thing as manners after all.“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas


„" he said, which, he presumed, was another way of saying, "Well, goodbye for now, have a pleasant afternoon.“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„Well you've been brought here against your will, just like I have. If you ask me, we're all in the same boat. And it's leaking.“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

„I think i'm just breathing, that's all. And there's a difference between breathing and being alive.“ The Absolutist

„Very slowly he turned his head back to look at Shmuel, who wasn't crying anymore, merely staring at the floor and looking as if he was trying to convince his soul not to live inside his tiny body anymore, but to slip away and sail to the door and rise up into the sky, gliding through the clouds until it was very far away.'' -The Boy in the Striped Pajamas“ The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
