„Hebrejština snese neuvěřitelné věci. Můžu použít nejsoučasnější slang z ulice a propojit ho s citátem z bible starým tisíce let. A ta řeč nejenže to snese, ale přímo tím ožívá a vzkvétá.“

„The note in the quill was intended for the girl, and it read, 'Yes and yes and yes.' Yes I love you, yes I miss you, and yes I know and remember that you do, too. For in her last missive she had written 'No and no.' That is to say, No I do not want anyone other than you, and no I do not manage to sleep at night.“


„A woman has to look good, but a man—a little bit nicer looking than a monkey is enough.“ A Pigeon and a Boy

„Mine is the tongue tied silence of awkwardness, hers the smiling silence of anticipation, and then we utter inanities to each other, like "beautiful weather arranged for us" and "I like these kind of clouds.“ A Pigeon and a Boy

„you don’t need big reasons to love a woman. And the size of the love has nothing to do with the size of the reason. Sometimes one word she says is enough. Sometimes only the line of the hip, like a poppy stem. And sometimes it’s how her lips look when she says ‘seven’ or ‘thirteen.’ Look and see, with ‘seven’ the lips are starting out like with a kiss. Then you see the teeth are touching the lips a moment to make the ‘v.’ And then the mouth is opening a little … like this … se-ven. See? And with ‘thirteen,’ the tip of the tongue is peeping out for the ‘th.’ Then the mouth is opening and the tongue is touching the top of the mouth at the end.“

„That’s true freedom for a person. Not money, but time.“ A Pigeon and a Boy
