Isabel Allende Quote: “Heart is what drives us and determines our fate. That is what I need for my characters in my books: a passionate heart. I need mavericks, dissidents, adventurers, outsiders and rebels, who ask questions, bend the rules and take risks.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “I learned very quickly that when you emigrate, you lose the crutches that have been your support; you must begin from zero, because the past is erased with a single stroke and no one cares where you’re from or what you did before.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Accept the children the way we accept trees – with gratitude, because they are a blessing – but do not have expectations or desires. You don’t expect trees to change, you love them as they are.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “And I am not one of those women who trips twice over the same stone.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I do not put myself in a box and say, for instance, I’m writing post-colonial literature. I don’t know what I’m writing. That’s the business of professors and critics. My job is to tell a story, and that’s it.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Todos tenemos demonios en los rincones oscuros del alma, pero si los sacamos a la luz, los demonios se achican, se debilitan, se callan y al fin nos dejan en paz.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “Americans have a warrior’s mentality, most of them. That’s how this society was built. The fact that you own a gun and shoot to defend your life is a very American way of thinking.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I don’t read thrillers, romance or mystery, and I don’t read self-help books because I don’t believe in shortcuts and loopholes.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “That is the best part of writing: finding the hidden treasures, giving sparkle to worn out events, invigorating the tired soul with imagination, creating some kind of truth with many lies.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “I was a very bad journalist. Awful. I would just invent everything. If I did an interview, I had a preconception of what that person should say and I would put my words in his mouth.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “The world is a very unjust, unfair place and we have to live with that. Historically, there is impunity for most crimes.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Tal vez no hicieron nada que no hubieran hecho con otros, pero es muy distinto hacer el amor amando.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “At the most difficult moments of my life, when it seemed that every door was closed to me, the taste of those apricots comes back to comfort me with the notion that abundance is always within reach, if only one knows how to find it.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “I seek truth and beauty in the transparency of an autumn leaf, in the perfect form of a seashell on the beach, in the curve of a woman’s back, in the texture of an ancient tree trunk, but also in the elusive forms of reality.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Eros is very close to death. And both things, in a way, balance each other.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Tell Larry I’m not going to the reception, and that he can’t count on me for anything for the rest of my life.” Her emphatic tone brooked no argument. Her daughter-in-law closed the door silently and went to give her husband the message.”
