Citáty Marguerite Yourcenar

„Přátelství je především jistota, která ho odlišuje od lásky. Je také respekt a úplné přijetí jiné bytosti.“

—  Marguerite Yourcenar

Originál: (fr) L'amitié est avant tout certitude, c'est ce qui la distingue de l'amour. Elle est aussi respect, et acceptation totale d'un autre être.

„Doubtless it signified one or the other meaning alternately, or perhaps both at the same time.“

—  Marguerite Yourcenar, kniha The Abyss

Author's note, p. 367
The Abyss (1968)
Kontext: In alchemical treatises, the formula L'Oeuvre au Noir … designates what is said to be the most difficult phase of the alchemist's process, the separation and dissolution of substance. It is still not clear whether the term applied to daring experiments on matter itself, or whether it was understood to symbolize trials of the mind in discarding all forms of routine and prejudice. Doubtless it signified one or the other meaning alternately, or perhaps both at the same time.

„Every silence is composed of nothing but unspoken words. Perhaps that is why I became a musician. Someone had to express this silence, make it render up all the sadness it contained, make it sing as it were.“

—  Marguerite Yourcenar

Alexis (1929)
Kontext: Every silence is composed of nothing but unspoken words. Perhaps that is why I became a musician. Someone had to express this silence, make it render up all the sadness it contained, make it sing as it were. Someone had to use not words, which are always too precise not to be cruel, but simply music.

„The true birthplace is that wherein for the first time one looks intelligently upon oneself; my first homelands have been books.“

—  Marguerite Yourcenar, kniha Memoirs of Hadrian

Le véritable lieu de naissance est celui où l'on a porté pour la première fois un coup d'oeil intelligent sur soi-même: mes premières patries ont été des livres.

„I knew that good like bad becomes a routine, that the temporary tends to endure, that what is external permeates to the inside, and that the mask, given time, comes to be the face itself.“

—  Marguerite Yourcenar, kniha Memoirs of Hadrian

Je savais que le bien comme le mal est affaire de routine, que le temporaire se prolonge, que l'extérieur s'infiltre au dedans, et que le masque, à la longue, devient visage.
