Yann Martel Quote: “I have a story that will make you believe in God.”
Yann Martel Quote: “Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud...”

Yann Martel Quote: “There is nothing more satisfying than having a sentence fall into place in a way you feel is right, and then adding another one and then another one. It’s extraordinarily satisfying.”

Yann Martel Quote: “Faith in God is an opening up, a letting go, a deep trust, a free act of love – but sometimes it was so hard to love.”
Yann Martel Quote: “If you stumble about believability, what are you living for? Love is hard to believe, ask any lover. Life is hard to believe, ask any scientist. God is hard to believe, ask any believer. What is your problem with hard to believe?”
Yann Martel Quote: “Art is the suitcase of history, carrying the essentials. Art is the life buoy of history. Art is seed, art is memory, art is vaccine.”

Yann Martel Quote: “I love cinema. I think the risk of the aesthetics being fixed is compensated by other advantages. Cinema is visually powerful, it is a complete experience, reaches different audience. It’s something I really like. I like movies.”
Yann Martel Quote: “The animals might embody certain traits. We think of tigers as being ferocious, etc. But to my mind, it was the other way around: the humans embodied certain animal traits.”

Yann Martel Quote: “To me, religion is about our dignity, not our depravity.”
Yann Martel Quote: “The world isn’t just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no? And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no? Doesn’t that make life a story?”
Yann Martel Quote: “That’s what fiction is about, isn’t it, the selective transforming of reality? The twisting of it to bring out its essence?”
Yann Martel Quote: “I did not count the days or the weeks or the months. Time is an illusion that only makes us pant. I survived because I forgot even the very notion of time.”

Yann Martel Quote: “As for hearing, the sloth is not so much deaf as uninterested in sound.”
Yann Martel Quote: “Life on a lifeboat isn’t much of a life. It is like an end game in chess, a game with few pieces. The elements couldn’t be more simple, nor the stakes higher.”
Yann Martel Quote: “I know what you want. You want a story that won’t surprise you. That will confirm what you already know. That won’t make you see higher or further or differently. You want a flat story. An immobile story. You want dry, yeastless factuality.”
Yann Martel Quote: “Don’t you bully me with your politeness!”
Yann Martel Quote: “My greatest wish – other than salvation – was to have a book. A long book with a never-ending story. One I could read again and again, with new eyes and a fresh understanding each time.”

Yann Martel Quote: “Life on a lifeboat isn’t much of a life.”
