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: “Darwin and Karl Marx didn’t reveal the secret of the world. Of all the theories about creation, the one expounded in Genesis is the most intelligent. All this talk about primordial mists or the Big Bang is a wild absurdity. If someone found a watch on an island and said it had been made by itself or that it developed through evolution, he would be considered a lunatic. But according to modern science, the universe evolved all on its own. Is the universe less complicated than a watch?”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “The ghetto was not only a place of refuge for a persecuted minority but a great experiment in peace, in self-discipline and in humanism. As such it still exists and refuses to give up in spite of all the brutality that surrounds it. I was brought up among those people.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Every human character appears only once in the history of human beings. And so does every event of love.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Children don t read to find their identity to free themselves from guilt to quench the thirst for rebellion or to get rid of alienation. They have no use for psychology... They still believe in God the family angels devils witches goblins logic clarity punctuation and other such obsolete stuff... When a book is boring they yawn openly. They don t expect their writer to redeem humanity but leave to adults such childish illusions.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Where do the wheels of history lead? How can you be so sure that the wheels of history won’t get bogged down in blood and marrow again?”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “A soldier who serves an emperor has to have a uniform, and this also applies to a soldier who serves the Almighty.”

Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “But what about the creatures whose flesh he’s carrying there? A few days ago they were alive. They too have souls. They too are God’s children. They were quite possibly made of better material than human beings. Since they were sinless, they were certainly more innocent. But day after day they are ritually sacrificed-angels in the shape of oxen, calves, sheep. I once wanted to become a vegetarian. I wanted everything-and I never got further than wanting.”
Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “Si el destino de un hombre depende de la desgracia de otro, entonces no existe buena fortuna para nadie.”

Isaac Bashevis Singer Quote: “I didn’t expect that anyone would be interested in my kind of writing. I was interested, and this was for me enough.”
