Philip Pullman Quote: “There is time, and there is what is beyond time. There is darkness, and there is light. There is the world and the flesh, and there is God.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Where did this love come from? I don’t know; it came to me like a thief in the night, and now I love her so much my heart is bursting with it.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “For that reason you can’t write with music playing, and anyone who says he can is either writing badly, or not listening to the music, or lying. You need to hear what you’re writing, and for that you need silence.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “The fact was that where Will is concerned, she was developing a new kind of sense, as if he were simply more in focus than anyone she’d known before. Everything about him was clear and close and immediate.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “But there had always been ghosts in the mountains, everyone knew that.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Death is going to die.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “No one, not even Shakespeare, surpasses Milton in his command of the sound, the music, the weight and taste and texture of English words.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “She wondered whether there would ever come an hour in her life when she didn’t think of him – didn’t speak to him in her head, didn’t relive every moment they’d been together, didn’t long for his voice and his hands and his love. She had never dreamed of what it would feel like to love someone so much; of all the things that had astonished her in her adventures, that was what astonished her the most. She thought the tenderness it left in her heart was like a bruise that would never go away, but she would cherish it forever.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Do you think I could bear to live on after you died? Oh, Lyra, I’d follow you down to the world of the dead without thinking twice about it, just like you followed Roger; and that would be two lives gone for nothing, my life wasted like yours. No, we should spend our whole lifetimes together, good long busy lives, and if we can’t spend them together, we... we’ll have to spend them apart.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Maybe so,” he said, “but whatever little chance of safety there is, I want her to have it.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Does he think the job of a librarian is so simple, so empty of content, that anyone can step up and do it for a thank-you and a cup of tea? Does he think that all a librarian does is to tidy the shelves?”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Lyra bent over the open vessel and found the concentrated fragrance of every rose that had ever bloomed: a sweetness and power so profound that it moved beyond sweetness altogether and out of the other side of its own complexity into a realm of clear and simple purity and beauty. It was the smell of sunlight itself.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “The Authority considers that conscious beings of every kind have become dangerously independent, so Metatron is going to intervene much more actively in human affairs.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “How can knowing something be sinful?”
Philip Pullman Quote: “There are two great powers,” the man said, “and they’ve been fighting since time began. Every advance in human life, every scrap of knowledge and wisdom and decency we have has been torn by one side from the teeth of the other. Every little increase in human freedom has been fought over ferociously between those who want us to know more and be wiser and stronger, and those who want us to obey and be humble and submit.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “There he dwelt, a prisoner acting like a king.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “The mind has plenty of ways of preventing you from writing, and paralysing self-consciousness is a good one. The only thing to do is ignore it, and remember what Vincent van Gogh said in one of his letters about the painter’s fear of the blank canvas – the canvas, he said, is far more afraid of the painter.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “We love them; they are brave, proud, beautiful, clever; and they die almost at once. They die so soon that our hearts are continually racked with pain. We.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “And for most of that time, wisdom has had to work in secret, whispering her words, moving like a spy through the humble places of the world while the courts and palaces are occupied by her enemies.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “The Specters feast as vampires feast on blood, but the Specters’ food is attention. A conscious and informed interest in the world. The immaturity of children is less attractive to them.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “He meant the Kingdom was over, the Kingdom of Heaven, it was all finished. We shouldn’t live as if it mattered more than this life in this world, because where we are is always the most important place.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Maybe art itself was a kind of voodoo, possessing you, giving you supernatural power, letting you see in the dark.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “I thought physics could be done to the glory of God, till I saw there wasn’t any God at all.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “I wish... ” she said, and stopped. There was nothing that could be gained by wishing for it. A final deep shaky breath, and she was ready to go on.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “And then Serafina understood something for which witches had no word: it was the idea of pilgrimage. She understood why these beings would wait for thousands of years and travel vast distances in order to be close to something important, and how they would feel differently for the rest of time, having been briefly in its presence.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “The wave function of this situation is going to collapse quite soon.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “If you speak to people, you just attract their attention,” he said, with a shaking voice. “You should just keep quiet and still and they overlook you. I’ve been doing it all my life. I know how to do it. Your way, you just – you make yourself visible.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “That is a question with too complicated an answer.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Eventually, child, you will come to the land of the dead with no effort, no risk, a safe, calm journey, in the company of your own death, your special, devoted friend, who’s been beside you every moment of your life, who knows you better than yourself.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “She was learning that if she pretended to be weak and frightened, and dabbed at her eyes with a lacy handkerchief, she could turn aside all manner of pressing questions.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “He had to stay close to the ship, of course, for he could never go far from her; but she sensed his desire to speed as far and as fast as he could, for pure exhilaration. She shared his pleasure, but for her it wasn’t simple pleasure, for there was pain and fear in it too. Suppose he loved being a dolphin more than he loved being with her on land? What would she do then? Her.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “I think we need to tell each other everything we’ve found out. And it’ll take us a good long time, and we might as well keep our hands busy while we’re doing it, so.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “The fate of Susan Pevensie indicates some sort of crazed, deranged Manichaeism. Here’s a simple test: What is the greatest Christian virtue? Well, it’s charity, isn’t it? It’s love. If somebody who knew nothing about Christian doctrine, and who had been told that Lewis was a great Christian teacher, read all the way through those books, would he get that message? No.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Do you think I need anything else?” “You could do with some sense,” came the reply. “Some faculty to enable you to recognize wisdom and incline you to respect and obey it.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Malcolm stared back calmly, though he felt anything but calm: if that monkey had a name, it might be Malice, he thought.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “War asks many people to do unreasonable things.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “But then she remembered what the gyptians had said: Include things, don’t leave them out. Look at things in their context. Include everything.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “You are an enemy of the Church, Lee Scoresby. By their fruits shall ye know them.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “The steamy, noisy kitchen was the safest place in the world, it seemed to him. Safety had never been anything to think about before; it was something you took for granted, like his mother’s endless, effortless, generous food, and the fact that there would always be hot plates ready to serve it on.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “And she sobbed so passionately he thought that hearts really did break, and hers was breaking now, for she fell to the ground wailing and shuddering, and Pantalaimon beside her became a wolf and howled with bitter grief.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “He sat down and collected his thoughts. They were quite easy to collect, because there weren’t very many of them, and they all concerned the same subject – what a burden his life was.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Had reason ever created a poem, or a symphony, or a painting? If rationality can’t see things like the secret commonwealth, it’s because rationality’s vision is limited. The secret commonwealth is there. We can’t see it with rationality any more than we can weigh something with a microscope: it’s the wrong sort of instrument. We need to imagine as well as measure...”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Besides, if you want to write something perfect, write a haiku. Anything longer is bound to have a few passages that don’t work as well as they might.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “The e-book revolution has made it very easy to pay writers a good deal less than what their work is worth. I do strongly believe that we writers ought to hold out for much better royalties.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Fritz had to stop himself from interrupting when Karl spoke about the difficulty of working. Stories are just as hard as clocks to put together, and they can go wrong just as easily – as we shall soon see with Fritz’s own story in a page or two. Still, Fritz was an optimist, and Karl was a pessimist, and that makes all the difference in the world.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Shame on you! Think what this child has done! You might not have more courage, but you should be ashamed to show less.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Behind them lay pain and death and fear; ahead of them lay doubt, and danger, and fathomless mysteries.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Lyra had to adjust to her new sense of her own story, and that couldn’t be done in a day.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “There’s another difference between us, Mr. Scoresby. A witch would no sooner give up flying than give up breathing. To fly is to be perfectly ourselves.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Both of them sat silent on the moss-covered rock in the slant of sunlight through the old pines and thought how many tiny chances had conspired to bring them to this place. Each of those chances might have gone a different way.”
