Lois Lowry je americká spisovatelka.


„Na přechovávání vzpomínek není nejhorší ta bolest. Nejhorší je, jak je při tom člověk osamělý. Vzpomínky by se měly sdílet. - Dárce“

„V životě, jaký ji naučili vést, pocity nikoho nezajímají.“


„"A tak pořád do minulosti" -Dárce“

„Lidi je opravdu třeba chránit před špatným rozhodnutím. -Jonas“ Dárce

„The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It's the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared.“ The Giver

„Take pride in your pain; you are stronger than those who have none“ Gathering Blue

„It is very risky. But each time a child opens a book, he pushes open the gate that separates him from Elsewhere.“

„We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others.“ The Giver


„Memory is the happiness of being alone.“ Anastasia Krupnik

„The man that I named the Giver passed along to the boy knowledge, history, memories, color, pain, laughter, love, and truth. Every time you place a book in the hands of a child, you do the same thing. It is very risky. But each time a child opens a book, he pushes open the gate that separates him from Elsewhere. It gives him choices. It gives him freedom. Those are magnificent, wonderfully unsafe things.

[from her Newberry Award acceptance speech]“

„If you were to be lost in the river, Jonas, your memories would not be lost with you. Memories are forever.“ The Giver

„For the first time, he heard something that he knew to be music. He heard people singing. Behind him, across vast distances of space and time, from the place he had left, he thought he heard music too. But perhaps, it was only an echo.“ The Giver


„It's the choosing that's important, isn't it?“ The Giver

„Of course they needed to care. It was the meaning of everything.“ The Giver

„I liked the feeling of love,' [Jonas] confessed. He glanced nervously at the speaker on the wall, reassuring himself that no one was listening. 'I wish we still had that,' he whispered. 'Of course,' he added quickly, 'I do understand that it wouldn't work very well. And that it's much better to be organized the way we are now. I can see that it was a dangerous way to live.'

...'Still,' he said slowly, almost to himself, 'I did like the light they made. And the warmth.“
The Giver

„It is much easier to be brave if you do not know everything.“
