Isabel Allende Quote: “My worst flaw is that I tell secrets, my own and everybody else’s.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “We are all born happy. Life gets us dirty along the way, but we can clean it up.

You need to love yourself as I do, as all those who know you do, especially Alma’s grandson.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I like historical fiction. I fell in love with New Orleans the first time I visited it. And I wanted to place a story in New Orleans.”
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: “Women are the only ones who will be able to eliminate the patriarchy, and when that happens all of us will win, men as much as women.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “Because he had hardened his soul and silenced his conscience with the excuse of progress.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “The success occurs in a place outside of me, and doesn’t touch me on an intimate level. I live in my own skin, I have not changed greatly, I remain the same woman.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “There is room in the human heart for all the divinities.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “Writing is a constant exercise in longing.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “More and more books are published every year. If people were not reading them, they wouldn’t be published. We are now reading electronic books or whatever else, but people are still reading, and people still need stories.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Por un tiempo se extraviaron en una intimidad absoluta que confundieron con el amor.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “La vejez es el mejor momento para ser y hacer lo que a uno le place.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “No complaining about how hard it is to write, we are all so, so lucky to write, to sit down, inside, and write words on paper. There is no greater freedom, no greater good, nothing that brings more joy.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Twittering and blogging and all that is fine, but there is no idea of how to phrase something beautifully; how to use language to create an emotion. It’s just passing information and sometimes very superficial information.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “Walking and walking across the world he will gradually find consolation, and one day, when he is too fatigued to take another step, he will realize that he cannot escape sorrow, he will have to tame it, so it doesn’t harass him.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “We have often said that loving each other is our destiny, that we have loved each other in past lives and will go on meeting in lives to come. Or it may be there is no past or future, and everything takes place simultaneously in the universe’s infinite dimensions. If that is so, we remain together forever. It’s fantastic to be alive. We are still seventeen years old, my Alma.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “There’s a certain freshness and innocence in people who have always lived in one place and can count on witnesses to their passage through the world. In contrast, those of us who have moved on many times develop tough skin out of necessity. Since we lack roots or corroboration of who we are, we must put our trust in memory to give continuity to our lives... but memory is always cloudy, we can’t trust it.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Death, with its ancestral weight of terrors, is merely the abandonment of an unserviceable shell at the time the spiritis reintegrated into the unified energy of the cosmos. The end of life, like birth, is a stagein a voyage, and deserves the compassion we accord to its beginnings. There is absolutely no virtue in prolonging the heartbeat and tremors of a body beyond its natural span...”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I’m fine here, Lenny. I’m discovering who I am without all my ornaments and accessories. It’s quite a slow process, but a very useful one. Everybody ought to do the same at the end of their life. If I had any self-discipline I would beat my grandson to it and write my own memoirs. I have time, freedom, and silence, the three things I never had amidst all the noise of my earlier life. I’m preparing to die.” “That won’t.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “She awoke from a long childhood in which she had always been protected and surrounded by attention and comforts, with no responsibilities.”

Isabel Allende Quote: “Although women do two-thirds of the world’s labor, they own less than one percent of the world’s assets.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “And that fox escaped with his tail between his legs, with all of the hens chasing after him.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “The girl you were died; the potion of death was what all of us women swallow sooner or later. Have you noticed how at puberty the Amazon-like energy we are born with fades and we turn into doubt-filled creatures with clipped wings? The woman left trapped in the silo is also you, a prisoner of the restrictions of adult life. The female condition is a disgrace, Isabel, it’s like having rocks tied to your ankles so you can’t fly.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Quien se complace en pensar en lo malo, acaba por convocarlo.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I was alone, without a single cent, in an unknown country. If I’d learned anything from last year’s ill-fated adventures, though, it was not to get overwhelmed by minor inconveniences.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “The elderly are the most entertaining people in the world,” she eventually told Irina. “They have lived a lot, say whatever they like, and couldn’t care less about other people’s opinion. You’ll never get bored here. Our residents are well educated, and if they’re in good health they keep on learning and experimenting. This community stimulates them and they can avoid the worst scourge of old age: loneliness.” Irina.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Scrisul e o introspectie indelungata, o calatorie catre grotele cele mai ascunse ale constiintei, o meditatie lenta. Scriu pipaind tacerea, descoperind particule de adevar, mici cristale care-mi cad in palma si-mi justifica trecerea pe aceasta lume.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “When a man’s earning his living doing things he doesn’t like, he feels like a slave; when he’s doing what he loves, he feels like a prince.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I have travelled all over the world and one thing that amazes me is that I can communicate with people. My story may be different but emotionally we are all the same.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Her Uncle Jaime felt that people never read what did not interest them and that if it interested them that meant they were sufficiently mature to read it.”
