Sigrid Undset Quotes

Sigrid Undset Quote: “No one and nothing can harm us, child, except what we fear and love.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “But I didn’t realize then that the consequence of sin is that you have to trample on other people.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “All my days I have longed equally to travel the right road and to take my own errant path.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Feelings of longing seemed to burst from her heart; they ran in all directions, like streams of blood, seeking out paths to all the places in the wide landscape where she had lived, to all her sons roaming through the world, to all her dead lying under the earth.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I hated school so intensely. It interfered with my freedom.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “All things that a man owns hold him far more than he holds them.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “It’s a good thing when you don’t dare do something if you don’t think it’s right. But it’s not good when you think something’s not right because you don’t dare do it.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “And when we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans – and all that lives and move upon them. He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused – and to save us from our foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “In all the years when I did not know what to believe in and therefore preferred to leave all beliefs alone, whenever I came to a place where living water welled up, blessedly cold and sweet and pure, from the earth’s dark bosom, I felt that after all it must be wrong not to believe in anything.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “All fires burn out at last.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “God will find you,” said the priest quietly. “Stay calm and do not flee from Him who has been seeking you before you even existed in your mother’s womb.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Pre-Christian paganism is a love poem to a God who remained hidden, or it was an attempt to gain the favour of the divine powers whose presence man felt about him. The new paganism is a declaration of war against a God who has revealed Himself.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I am not so foolish as to murmur, if now, since I have drunk up my wine and beer, I have to put up with skimmed milk and sour.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Wherever they might wander out in the world, whithersoever they might fare, forgetful of their mother, she felt as though for her their life must still be an action of her life, they must still be as one with herself as they had been when she alone in all the world knew of the new life which lay hidden within and drank of her blood and made her cheeks pale.” –p. 329-30.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “The times when we need prayers or counsel, we are little like to be in a mood to learn, nor yet to understand.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I hated school so intensely. It interfered with my freedom. I avoided the discipline by an elaborate technique of being absent-minded during classes.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Many a man is given what is intended for another, but no man is given another’s fate.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “The morality code that remains after the religion that produced it is rejected is like the perfume that lingers in an empty bottle.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Stay calm and do not flee from Him who has been seeking you before you even existed in your mother’s womb.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “He felt as if the roots of his own life were intertwined with those of his brothers and sisters, somewhere deep down in the dark earth. Every blow that struck, every injury that ate away at the marrow of one of them was felt by all.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I was sent to a school because my father was already aware that his days were numbered, and he was anxious for me to acquire a good education and follow in his footsteps.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Surely she had never asked God for anything except that He should let her have her will. And every time she had been granted what she asked for – for the most part. Now here she sat with a contrite heart – not because she had sinned against God but because she was unhappy that she had been allowed to follow her will to the road’s end.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I saw not till now what sin brings with it – that we must tread others underfoot.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “One cannot escape dogmas – those who hold most firmly to dogmas today are those whose only dogma is that dogmas should be feared like the plague.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Dear sister – all other love is merely a reflection of the heavens in the puddles of a muddy road. You will become sullied too if you allow yourself to sink into it. But if you always remember that it’s a reflection of the light from that other home, then you will rejoice at its beauty and take good care that you do not destroy it by churning up the mire at the bottom.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Then it occurred to me that many of these people had suffered more than Christ himself. “I pondered this until I felt that my heart and mind would burst. But finally I received the light that I had prayed and begged for. And I realized that just as they had suffered, so should we all have the courage to suffer. Who would be so foolish not to accept pain and torment if this was the way to a faithful and steadfast bridegroom who waits with open arms, his breast bloody and burning with love.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Easy for them to keep their youth who will never learn a lesson...”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “No doing without some ruing.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “All that had happened and would happen was meant to be. Everything happens as it is meant to be.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “But when he saw her – if he but thought of her, a sense came over him as of the first breath of the plough-lands in spring, when the snows are but now melted and gone. He knew it now – it might have befallen him too – he, too, could have loved.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “And I see you still don’t realize, no matter how many times you’ve witnessed it, that you can’t always manage alone everything that you’ve taken on. But I will help you to undertake this burden.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Help me, Gunnulf,” begged Kristin. She was white to the very edge of her lips. “I don’t know my own will.” “Then say: Thy will be done,” replied the priest softly.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “It is an easy matter, Olav, to be a good Christian so long as God asks no more of you than to hear sweet singing in church, and to yield Him obedience while He caresses you with the hand of a father. But a man’s faith is put to the test on the day God’s will is not his.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I wot well you are more more godly in such-like things that I can ever be – yet, Kristin, ’tis hard for me to see how it should be a right reading of God’s word to go on, as your way is, ever storing up wrath and never forgetting.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “If I were truly talented, as I once imagined I was, then I would have understood long ago that life is just about people.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Saint Olav turned her eyes toward Christ on the cross – see, Kristin: God’s love.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “She walked as if through a forest. The pillars were furrowed like ancient trees, and into the woods the light seeped, colorful and as clear as song, through the stained-glass windows. High overhead animals and people frolicked in the stone foliage, and angels played their instruments. At an even higher, more dizzying height, the vaults of the ceiling arched upward, lifting the church toward God... The song cut through her like a blinding light. Now she saw how deep in the dust she lay.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Dragons and all other creatures that serve the Devil only seem big as long as we harbor fear within ourselves. But if a person seeks God with such earnestness and desire that he enters into His power, then the power of the Devil at once suffers such a great defeat that his instruments become small and impotent. Dragons and evil spirits shrink until they are no bigger than goblins and cats and crows.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “All those wasted and squandered years when I did nothing but go around looking inside myself until I ended up alone even though I was surrounded by people. But I paid attention only to what was happenstance about them – not their true selves.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I went to work in an office and learned, among other lessons, to do things I did not care for, and to do them well. Before I left this office, two of my books had already been published.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “But these events had touched her so little – like the echo of thunder from the mountains after a storm had passed over the countryside and was far away.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I rolled myself up into a tight ball of resistance and it was thus that I went through my school years.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “You must have known it yourself, Erlend- a thicket of briers and thorns and nettles had you sowed around you- how could you draw a young maid in to your side and she not be torn and wounded and bleeding-“ –p. 93.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “But man proposes, God disposes.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I’m not to blame, Ramborg, if a man’s heart is created in such a fashion that whatever is inscribed on it when it’s young and fresh is carved deeper than all the runes that are later etched.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “They received food from the monks at the churches they visited, and when they drank the blood-red wine and broke off the golden crust from the bread made of wheat, all four priests from the barley lands understood why Christ had honored wine and wheat, which were purer than all other foodstuffs that God had given humankind, by manifesting himself in their likeness during the holy communion.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “By the grace of God, we two unworthy souls were joined together in holy marriage. Branded by the flames of sin, bowed by the burdens of sin, we came together at the portals of God’s house; together we received the Savior’s Host from the hand of the priest. Should I now complain if God is testing my faith? Should I now think about anything else but that I am his wife and he is my husband for as long as we both shall live?”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “I’m not as good a man as you are. I can’t so easily forgive those I have wronged.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “His heart sang in his breast; his soul felt like a bride in the arms of the bridegroom. He realized full well that this would not last. No man could live on earth in this manner for long. And he had received each hour of that bright springtime like a pledge – a merciful promise that would strengthen his endurance when the skies darkened over him and the road led down into a dark ravine, through roaring rivers and cold snowdrifts.”
Sigrid Undset Quote: “Most of my father’s life consisted of traveling to almost every part of Europe.”
