Альбе́рто Мора́виа — итальянский писатель, новеллист и журналист.


„У того, кто никогда не меняет взглядов, обычно нет никаких взглядов.“

„Процент неграмотных — величина постоянная, только в наше время неграмотные умеют читать.“


„Дорога цивилизации вымощена консервными банками.“

„Диктатура — это государство, в котором все боятся одного, а один всех.“

„Что мне нравится у поэтов – это поэзия.“

„Good writers are monotonous, like good composers. They keep trying to perfect the one problem they were born to understand.“

„And we all know love is a glass which makes even a monster appear fascinating.“ The Woman of Rome

„You can't think on purpose about somebody or something. Either you think about them naturally or you don't think at all.“ Boredom


„When you aren't sincere you need to pretend, and by pretending you end up believing yourself; that's the basic principle of every faith.“ The Time of Indifference

„Loyalty, Signor Molteni, not love. Penelope is loyal to Ulysses but we do not know how far she loved him... and as you know people can sometimes be absolutely loyal without loving. In certain cases, in fact, loyalty is form of vengeance, of black-mail, of recovering one's self-respect. Loyalty, not love.“ Contempt

„This thought strengthened in me my belief that all men, without exception, deserve to be pitied, if only because they are alive.“ The Woman of Rome

„An uncertain evil causes anxiety because, at the bottom of one's heart, one goes on hoping till the last moment that it may not be true; a certain evil, on the other hand, instills, for a time, a kind of dreary tranquillity.“ Contempt


„Every true writer is like a bird; he repeats the same song, the same theme, all his life. For me, this theme as always been revolt.“

„... my boredom might be described as a malady affecting external objects and consisting of a withering process; an almost instantaneous loss of vitality--just as though one saw a flower change in a few seconds from a bud to decay and dust.“

„I gave up the unequal struggle against what appeared to be in my fate, indeed, I welcomed it with more affection. As one embraces a foe one can't defeat and I felt liberated.“ The Woman of Rome

„Because the world to-day is so constructed that no one can do what he would like to do, and he is forced, instead, to do what others wish him to do. Because the question of money always intrudes—into what we do, into what we are, into what we wish to become, into our work, into our highest aspirations, even into our relations with the people we love!“ Contempt
