„Во вселенной есть порядок во всем: в движении звезд, планет, смене сезонов, но человеческая жизнь — это полный хаос, все вынуждены отстаивать свои права и чувства, думать о своих действиях и действиях других людей...“

„Любви нужно учиться и учиться вновь. Этому нет конца.“


„Джентльмен никогда не ест. Он только завтракает, обедает и ужинает.“

„The past is never where you think you left it.“

„I shall try to tell the truth, but the result will be fiction.“

„There seems to be a kind of order in the universe…in the movement of the stars and the turning of the Earth and the changing of the seasons. But human life is almost pure chaos. Everyone takes his stance, asserts his own right and feelings, mistaking the motives of others, and his own.“

„Love must be learned and learned again; There is no end.“

„I get so tired of moral bookkeeping.“


„Trust your happiness and the richness of your life at this moment. It is as true and as much yours as anything else that ever happened to you.“ Letters of Katherine Anne Porter

„God does not know whether a skin is black or white, He sees only souls.“ The Collected Stories of Katherine Anne Porter

„If I didn't know the ending of a story, I wouldn't begin. I always write my last lines, my last paragraph first, and then I go back and work towards it. I know where I'm going. I know what my goal is. And how I get there is God's grace.“

„The trial of Jesus of Nazareth, the trial and rehabilitation of Joan of Arc, any one of the witchcraft trials in Salem during 1691, the Moscow trials of 1937 during which Stalin destroyed all of the founders of the 1924 Soviet REvolution, the Sacco-Vanzetti trial of 1920 through 1927- there are many trials such as these in which the victim was already condemned to death before the trial took place, and it took place only to cover up the real meaning: the accused was to be put to death. These are trials in which the judge, the counsel, the jury, and the witnesses are the criminals, not the accused. For any believer in capital punishment, the fear of an honest mistake on the part of all concerned is cited as the main argument against the final terrible decision to carry out the death sentence. There is the frightful possibility in all such trials as these that the judgement has already been pronounced and the trial is just a mask for murder.“ The Never-Ending Wrong

„Death always leaves one singer to mourn.“ Pale Horse, Pale Rider

„You waste life when you waste good food.“ Flowering Judas

„Could she fall so low? No, there were limits, and she believed she still knew where some of them were.“ Ship of Fools
