Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “How can we speak of right and justice if we take an innocent creature and shed its blood? How can we pray to God for mercy if we ourselves have no mercy? Nobel laureate in literature.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Those who run around with women don’t walk tightropes. They find it hard enough to crawl on the ground.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “They still believe in God, the family, angels, witches, goblins, logic, clarity, punctuation, and other obsolete stuff.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “The analysis of character is the highest human entertainment.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Originality is not seen in single words or even in sentences. Originality is the sum total of a man’s thinking or his writing.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “In our time, when the literature for adults is deteriorating, good books for children are the only hope, the only refuge.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “The Yiddish mentality is not haughty. It does not take victory for granted. It does not demand and command but it muddles through, sneaks by, smuggles itself amidst the powers of destruction, knowing somewhere that God’s plan for Creation is still at the very beginning.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “I know as a writer how valuable a tool is the wastebasket. Perhaps God throws away many experiments before He finds the right expression. Perhaps we are the discards – or we could be the part He keeps. This mystery is what keeps us all going, to see what happens in the next chapter.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “No matter how much you know a human being, you don’t know him enough.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “When we’re trying to decide whether a leader is a good leader or a bad one, the question to ask is: ‘Is he with the Ten Commandments or is he against them?’ Then you can determine if the leader is a true messiah or another Stalin.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Each soul must accomplish its task, or it would not have been sent here.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “The genuine writer cannot ignore the fact that the family is losing its spiritual foundation.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “If we have people with the power to tell a story, there will always be readers.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “What do they know-all these scholars, all these philosophers, all the leaders of the world – about such as you? They have convinced themselves that man, the worst transgressor of all the species, is the crown of creation. All other creatures were created merely to provide him with food, pelts, to be tormented, exterminated. In relation to them, all people are Nazis; for the animals it is an eternal Treblinka.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “There is no such thing as love. Give me a cigarette. In the camp, people climbed on one another like worms.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “To be a vegetarian is to disagree – to disagree with the course of things today. Starvation, world hunger, cruelty, waste, wars – we must make a statement against these things. Vegetarianism is my statement. And I think it’s a strong one.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “No doubt the world is entirely an imaginary world, but it is only once removed from the true world.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “The soul never dies and the body is never really alive.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “When the time comes I will go joyfully. Whatever may be there, it will be real, without complication, without ridicule, without deception.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “It seems that the analysis of character is the highest human entertainment. And literature does it, unlike gossip, without mentioning names.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “I believe in God but people are liars. It’s those people who say they are appointed by God who I don’t believe in.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Shoulders are from God and burdens too.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “What’s the good of not believing? Today it’s your wife you don’t believe; tomorrow it’s God Himself you won’t take stock in.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “There is no death. How can there be death if everything is part of the Godhead? The soul never dies and the body is never really alive.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “There will be no justice as long as man will stand with a knife or with a gun and destroy those who are weaker than he is.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “When a human being kills an animal for food, he is neglecting his own hunger for justice.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “The pessimism of the creative person is not decadence but a mighty passion for the redemption of man.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “God is a writer and we are both the heroes and the readers.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Writing has power, but its power has no vector. Writers can stir the mind, but they can’t direct it. Time changes things, God changes things, the dictators change things, but writers can’t change anything.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Literature has neglected the old and their emotions. The novelists never told us that in love, as in other matters, the young are just beginners and that the art of loving matures with age and experience.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “In many ways, astrology, numerology and palmistry are corruptions of the occult because they have attempted to make a practice out of something that is essentially imaginative.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “In the history of old Jewish literature there was never any basic difference between the poet and the prophet. Our ancient poetry often became law and a way of life.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “There is a plan to this universe. There is a high intelligence, maybe even a purpose, but it’s given to us on the installment plan.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “We know what a person thinks not when he tells us what he thinks, but by his actions.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “I am thankful, of course, for the prize and thankful to God for each story, each idea, each word, each day.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Actually, the true story of a person’s life can never be written. It is beyond the power of literature. The full tale of any life would be both utterly boring and utterly unbelievable.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “In the half darkness I winked to my other self, my mad dictator, and congratulated him on his droll victory. I closed my eyes and felt the warmth flowing from Shosha’s head to my face. What did I have to lose? Nothing more than what everyone loses anyway.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “As much as I can give of myself I give of myself. There’s no reason why not. And when I have to hide something, I let the character speak.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Whatever doesn’t really happen is dreamed at night. It happens to one if it doesn’t happen to another, tomorrow if not today, or a century hence if not next year.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “All is foreseen but the choice is given.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “It is a general rule that when the grain of truth cannot be found, men will swallow great helpings of falsehood.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “I am not ashamed to admit that I belong to those who fantasize that literature is capable of bringing new horizons and new perspectives – philosophical, religious, aesthetical and even social.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “There must be a way for man to attain all possible pleasures, all the powers and knowledge that nature can grant him, and still serve God – a God who speaks in deeds, not in words, and whose vocabulary is the Cosmos.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Some of my cronies call me a pessimist and a decadent, but there is always a background of faith behind resignation.”

Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “One has to trust that God knows how to manage the world.”
