Isabel Allende Quote: “With women the best aphrodisiac is words.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “In that respect women are really thick. They’re the daughters of rigidity.

They have to sacrifice themselves for the sake of someone else.”
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: “When I started working in a feminist feminine magazine all my life was about rebelling against male authority, which is authority in general is male, so it was rebelling against everything. Everything that was around me made me angry.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Be careful what you ask of Heaven; it might be granted.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “I don’t want posterity, I don’t want anybody to remember me in any way. I don’t care about that because I’ll be dead. I think the spirit will move to some other state.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “We are all born happy. Life gets us dirty along the way, but we can clean it up. 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. You need to love yourself as I do, as all those who know you do, especially Alma’s grandson.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “At my age days dissolve like salt in water; the day’s gone and I don’t even know what I’ve done with the hours.”
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: “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: “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: “Supongo que en el transcurso de la vida embellecemos algunos recuerdos y procuramos olvidar otros.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Love is a free contract that begins with a spark and can end the same way.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “She intended to swallow the world and he lived crushed by reality.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “She felt that everything was made of glass, as fragile as a sigh.”
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: “She was one of those people who was born for the greatness of a single love, for exaggerated hatred, for apocalyptic vengance, and for the most sublime forms of heroism but she was unable to shape her fate to the dimensions of her amorous vocation, so it was lived out as something flat and gray trapped between her mother’s sickroom walls, wretched tenements, and the tortured confessions with which this large, opulent, hot-blooded woman made for maternity, abundance, action, and ardor- was consuming herself.”
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: “Buenos Aires, sophisticated and fascinating, is the Paris of Latin America; with a vibrant cultural scene, the best theater and live music, it is the birthplace of many world-famous writers.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “All you will have is the present. Waste no energy crying over yesterday or dreaming of tomorrow. Nostalgia is fatiguing and destructive, it is the vice of the expatriate. You must put down roots as if they were forever, you must have a sense of permanence.”
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: “Life is long, and the world is large. It is all a question of taking a chance.”
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: “Hundreds of thousands of terrified refugees were escaping to France, where a campaign of fear and hatred awaited them.”
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: “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!”
