Isabel Allende Quote: “Very few old folk are happy, Irina. Most of them are poor, aren’t healthy, and have no family. It’s the most fragile and difficult stage of life, more so than childhood, because it grows worse day by day, and there is no future other than death.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “When talking about human rights, in truth we’re referring to men’s rights. If a man is beaten and deprived of his freedom, it’s called torture. When a woman endures the same, it’s called domestic violence and is still considered a private matter in most of the world.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “He was so unfamiliar with this peaceful sense of happiness he did not even recognize it.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “I’m so old that I don’t recognize myself when I look in the mirror.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “At the age of twenty-two, suspecting their time was limited, Ichimei and she had gorged on love to enjoy it to the full, but the more they tried to exhaust it, the wilder their desire became, and whoever says that every flame must sooner or later be extinguished is wrong, because there are passions that blaze on until destiny destroys them with a swipe of its paw, and even then hot embers remain that need only a breath of oxygen to be rekindled.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “We have to consider violence against women for what it really is: the greatest crisis that faces humanity.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “She was one of those stoical, practical women of our country, the kind of woman who has a child with every man who passes through her life and, on top of that, takes in other people’s abandoned children, her own poor relatives, and anybody else who needs a mother, a sister, or an aunt; the kind of woman who’s the pillar of many other lives, who raises her children to grow up and leave her and lets her men leave too, without a word of reproach, because she has more pressing things to worry about.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “He did not know that she had seen her own destiny, that she had summoned him with the power of her thought, and that she had already made up her mind to marry without love.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Lo peor es tenerle miedo al miedo.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Someone like him who thought more about himself than he did his community, had no place in the tribe. Individualism was thought to be a form of madness, like being possessed by a demon.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “She embellished the facts because she was aware that life is how we tell it, so why would she jot down trivia?”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Writing is a long process of introspection; it is a voyage toward the darkest caverns of consciousness, a long, slow meditation. I write feeling my way in silence, and along the way discover particles of truth, small crystals that fit in the palm of one hand and justify my passage through this world.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “The upper middle class and the economic right, who had favored the coup, were euphoric. At first they were a little shocked when they saw the consequences of their action; they had never lived in a dictatorship and did not know what it was like. They thought the loss of democratic freedoms would be temporary and that it was possible to go without individual or collective rights for a while so long as the regime respected the tenets of free enterprise.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “It made her feel sorry for her husband: she was discovering how vulnerable to flattery a conceited old man could be.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “She embellished the facts, because she was aware that life is.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “Compared to Europe, Chile was a happily backward and distant paradise. It was true that at this moment it had a center-left government: the president was from the Radical Party and a freemason. He was detested by the Right, and his name was never mentioned by the “best families,” but he wasn’t going to last long. The Left, with its coarse realism and vulgarity, had no future; the owners of Chile would make sure of that.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “The spotless order of barracks and the artificial peace of fear reigned everywhere.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “There was no defense against the shells, he said, but they had calculated that three volumes of philosophy could stop bullets.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “What’s at the root of this explosive mixture of desire for and hatred of women? Why are aggression and harassment not civil rights or human rights concerns? Why are women silenced? Why isn’t there a declared war against such violence, like the war against drugs, terrorism, or crime? The answer is obvious: Violence and fear are instruments of control.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “As well as walking erect and disguising his tiredness, he also tried to avoid other symptoms of old age: meanness, mistrust, ill temper, resentment, and bad habits such as no longer shaving every day, repeating the same stories over and over, talking about himself, his ailments, or money.”
Isabel Allende Quote: “When you make an omelet, as when you make love, affection counts for more than technique.”
