Citáty José Saramago

„Men, forgive Him, for He knows not what He has done.“

—  José Saramago
Context: Jesus then realized he had been brought here under false pretences, as the lamb is led to sacrifice and that his life had been planned for death since the very beginning. Remembering the river of blood and suffering that would flow from his side and flood the entire earth, he called out to the open sky where God could be seen smiling, Men, forgive Him, for He knows not what He has done. p. 347; Jesus' last words from the cross.

„Besides the conversation of women, it is dreams that keep the world in orbit.“

—  José Saramago
Context: Besides the conversation of women, it is dreams that keep the world in orbit. But dreams also form a diadem of moons, therefore the sky is that splendour inside a man's head, if his head is not, in fact, his own unique sky. p. 107
