Луис Ламур — американский писатель, наиболее знаменитый и плодовитый автор вестернов.


„Придет время, когда ты решишь, что все кончено. Это и будет начало.“

„Однажды ты наконец поймешь, что все кончено. Это и будет начало.“


„Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.“

„Once you have read a book you care about, some part of it is always with you.“ Matagorda/The First Fast Draw

„There will come a time when you believe everything is finished; that will be the beginning.“

„For one who reads, there is no limit to the number of lives that may be lived, for fiction, biography, and history offer an inexhaustible number of lives in many parts of the world, in all periods of time.“

„The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast,
and you miss all you are traveling for.“

„Few of us ever live in the present. We are forever anticipating what is to come or remembering what has gone.“


„Up to a point a person’s life is shaped by environment, heredity, and changes in the world about them. Then there comes a time when it lies within their grasp to shape the clay of their life into the sort of thing they wish it to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune or the quirks of fate. Everyone has the power to say, "This I am today. That I shall be tomorrow.“ The Walking Drum

„A book is less important for what it says than for what it makes you think.“ Education of a Wandering Man

„I would not sit waiting for some vague tomorrow, nor for something to happen. One could wait a lifetime, and find nothing at the end of the waiting. I would begin here, I would make something happen.“ Sackett's Land

„The more one learns, the more he understands his ignorance.“


„I am somebody. I am me. And I don't need anybody to make me somebody.“

„When a man is one of a kind, he will be lonely wherever he is.“ The Lonesome Gods

„Have faith in God but keep your powder dry.“

„Do not let yourself be bothered by the inconsequential. One has only so much time in this world, so devote it to the work and the people most important to you, to those you love and things that matter. One can waste half a lifetime with people one doesn't really like, or doing things when one would be better off somewhere else.“ Ride the River
