Цитаты Майкл Морпурго


„When people make wars, they make refugees. Когда люди делают войны, они делают беженцев.“

„I can hate you more, but I'll never love you less.“ War Horse


„Being his real brother I could feel I live in his shadows, but I never have and I do not now. I live in his glow.“ Private Peaceful

„stories make you think and dream; books make you want to ask questions“ I Believe in Unicorns

„Any problem can be solved between people if only they can trust each other“ War Horse

„cause when there's life there's still hope“ War Horse

„That's what this war is all about, my friend. It's about which of us is the crazier. And clearly you British have an advantage. You were crazy beforehand.“ War Horse

„This one isn’t just any old horse. There’s a nobility in his eye, a regal serenity about him. Does he not personify all that men try to be and never can be? I tell you, my friend, there’s divinity in a horse, and specially in a horse like this. God got it right the day he created them. And to find a horse like this in the middle of this filthy abomination of a war, is for me like finding a butterfly on a dung heap. We don’t belong in the same universe as a creature like this.“ War Horse


„We're much alike, bee, you and me," I said. "You may carry your pack underneath you and your rifle may stick out of your bottom. But you and me, bee, are much alike.“ Private Peaceful

„They fight a war and they don't know what for. Isn't that crazy? How can one man kill another and not really know the reason why he does it, except that the other man wears a different color uniform and speaks a different language?“ War Horse

„I must survive. I have promises to keep.“ Private Peaceful

„There's a mouse in here with me. He's sitting there in the light of the lamp, looking up at me. He seems as surprised to see me as I am to see him. There he goes. I can hear him still, scurrying about somewhere under the hayrick. I think he's gone now. I hope he comes back. I miss him already.“ Private Peaceful


„I tell you, my friends,’ he said one day. ‘I tell you that I am the only sane man in the regiment. It’s the others that are mad, but they don’t know it. They fight a war and they don’t know what for. Isn’t that crazy? How can one man kill another and not really know the reason why he does it, except that the other man wears a different colour uniform and speaks a different language? And it’s me they call mad!“ War Horse

„That's what sailing is, a dance, and your partner is the sea. And with the sea you never take liberties. You ask her, you don't tell her. You have to remember always that she's the leader, not you. You and your boat are dancing to her tune.“ Alone on a Wide Wide Sea

„It's what I'll be singing in the morning. It won't be God Save the Ruddy King or All Things bleeding Bright and Beautiful. It'll be Orange and Lemons for Big Joe, for all of us.“

„Tonight, I want very much to believe that there’s a heaven, that death is not a full stop, and that we will all see one another again.“ Private Peaceful
