Isabel Allende Quote: “How accommodating love is; it forgives everything.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I was born in ancient times, at the end of the world, in a patriarchal Catholic and conservative family. No wonder that by age five I was a raging feminist – although the term had not reached Chile yet, so nobody knew what the heck was wrong with me.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I would like to be with my husband together sitting somewhere in a lonely place in the woods and take something, maybe some pills or something, a magic potion and die together.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “Heart is what drives us and determines our fate.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “Mi vida se hace al contarla y mi memoria se fija con la escritura; lo que no pongo en palabras sobre papel, lo borra el tiempo.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “What’s the worst thing about growing old?” she would ask them. They never thought about their age, was a common reply; they had once been adolescents, then they were thirty, fifty, sixty, and never gave it a thought, so why should they do so now?”
Isabel Allende Quote: “She believed that by giving problems a name they tended to manifest themselves, and then it was impossible to ignore them; whereas if they remained in the limbo of unspoken words, they could disappear by themselves, with the passage of time.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Life is long, and the world is large. It is all a question of taking a chance.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Nothing can grow in the shade of secrets, she would say, love needs light and space to flourish.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Souls in pain know no borders.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “You only have one life, but if you live it well, that’s enough. The only reality is now, today. What are you waiting for to be happy?”
Isabel Allende Quote: “The fact people think that when you sell a lot of books you are not a serious writer is a great insult to the readership. I get a little angry when people try to say such a thing.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “As I travel through life, I gather experiences that lie imprinted on the deepest strata of memory, and there they ferment, are transformed, and sometimes rise to the surface and sprout like strange plants from other worlds. What is the fertile humus of the subconscious composed of? Why are certain images converted into recurrent themes in nightmares or writing?”
Isabel Allende Quote: “In my book tours I get to meet an audience every night. And I see that there are mostly young people, and there are a lot of more men than before, but always young, I don’t get older men. As I’m getting older, my audience gets younger!”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Happiness is not exuberant or noisy, like pleasure or joy; it’s silent, tranquil, and gentle; it’s a feeling of satisfaction inside that begins with self-love.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “A veces, para exorcizar los demonios de un recuerdo es necesario contarlo como un cuento.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Just as Daniel Balalcazar said, it makes no sense to suffer in advance a misfortune that may never occur.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Going around in a sulk will get you nowhere. Pain is unavoidable, but suffering is optional.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “When you tell a story in the kitchen to a friend, it’s full of mistakes and repetitions. It’s good to avoid that in literature, but still, a story should feel like a conversation. It’s not a lecture.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I have learned many things in the 30 years that I have been writing.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I’m such a control freak. I want to control even my own death. Decide when I will die and how.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Igual que en el momento de venir al mundo, al morir tenemos miedo de lo desconocido. Pero el miedo es algo interior que no tiene nada que ver con la realidad.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “My books are written from personal experience, from memories, and from stories that come to me from all places.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Eso pasa con la edad: las historias del pasado cobran vida y se nos pegan en la piel.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “On that long journey she wept all the tears stored in her soul, leaving none in reserve for later sorrows.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I write, she wrote, that memory is fragile and the space of a single life is brief, passing so quickly that we never get a chance to see the relationship between events; we cannot gauge the consequences of our acts, and we believe in the fiction of past, present, and future, but it may also be true that everything happens simultaneously... That’s why my Grandmother Clara wrote in her notebooks, in order to see things in their true dimension.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Memory is fragile and capricious; each of us remembers and forgets according to what is convenient. The past is a notebook with many leaves on which we jot down our lives with ink that changes according to our state of mind.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “He understood then that all his exploits as a reporter, the feats that had won him such recognition and fame, were merely an attempt to keep his most ancient fears at bay, a stratagem for taking refuge behind a lens to test whether reality was more tolerable from that perspective.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “In terrible moments, in moments of revolution, of war or repression, of illness or death, people react with incredible strength.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “When I write fiction, I never try to deliver a message; I just want to tell a story. But I admit that I want the story to be memorable and the characters to touch the reader’s heart.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Feminism, like the ocean, is fluid, powerful, deep, and encompasses the infinite complexity of life; it moves in waves, currents, tides, and sometimes in storms. Like the ocean, feminism never stays quiet.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I’m surrounded by the scene of aging. I myself am in my 70s and not getting any younger. Although I’m very healthy, and I have a lot of energy, and I still feel 50, I’m over 70 and I understand that I am preparing for later.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “The only cure for so much misfortune is love. It’s not the force of gravity that keeps the universe in balance, but the binding power of love.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “She felt that everything was made of glass, as fragile as a sigh.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Color prejudice is so strong that if a woman has yellow hair, even if she has the face of an iguana, men turn to look at her in the street.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “At times I felt that the universe fabricated from the power of the imagination had stronger and more lasting contours than the blurred realm of the flesh-and-blood creatures around me.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I felt the strength of his desire, his hands at my waist, at the back of my neck, in my hair, his lips on my face and neck; I caught his young man’s scent, heard his voice murmuring my name, and I felt blessed. How could I in less than a minute go from the sadness of having been abandoned to the joy of feeling loved?”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Intimacy needs time to mature – a shared history, tears shed, obstacles overcome, photographs in an album. It’s a slow-growing plant.”
