„I did my best to go in a circle, hoping in this way to go in a straight line.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: Having heard, or more probably read somewhere, in the days when I thought I would be well advised to educate myself, or amuse myself, or stupefy myself, or kill time, that when a man in a forest thinks he is going forward in a straight line, in reality he is going in a circle, I did my best to go in a circle, hoping in this way to go in a straight line. For I stopped being half-witted and became sly, whenever I took the trouble … and if I did not go in a rigorously straight line, with my system of going in a circle, at least I did not go in a circle, and that was something.

„For had I been able to conceive something worse than what I had I would have known no peace until I got it, if I know anything about myself.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: Anything worse than what I do, without knowing what, or why, I have never been able to conceive, and that doesn’t surprise me, for I never tried. For had I been able to conceive something worse than what I had I would have known no peace until I got it, if I know anything about myself.

„What I assert, deny, question, in the present, I still can.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: What I assert, deny, question, in the present, I still can. But mostly I shall use the various tenses of the past. For mostly I do not know, it is perhaps no longer so, it is too soon to know, I simply do not know, perhaps shall never know.

„Nothing is more real than nothing.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: Nothing is more real than nothing. <!-- p, 16

„I played the part, you know, the part of — how shall I say, I don’t know.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: I knew it would soon be the end, so I played the part, you know, the part of — how shall I say, I don’t know.

„Can it be we are not free? It might be worth looking into.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: All the things you would do gladly, oh without enthusiasm, but gladly, all the things there seems no reason for your not doing, and that you do not do! Can it be we are not free? It might be worth looking into.

„Some of this rubbish has come in handy on occasions, I don’t deny it, on occasions which would never have arisen if they had left me in peace. I use it still, to scratch my arse with.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: What they were most determined for me to swallow was my fellow creatures. In this they were without mercy. I remember little or nothing of these lectures. I cannot have understood a great deal. But I seem to have retained certain descriptions, in spite of myself. They gave me courses on love, on intelligence, most precious, most precious. They also taught me to count, and even to reason. Some of this rubbish has come in handy on occasions, I don’t deny it, on occasions which would never have arisen if they had left me in peace. I use it still, to scratch my arse with.

„Saying is inventing. Wrong, very rightly wrong.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: And truly it little matters what I say, this or that or any other thing. Saying is inventing. Wrong, very rightly wrong. You invent nothing, you think you are inventing, you think you are escaping, and all you do is stammer out your lesson, the remnants of a pensum one day got by heart and long forgotten, life without tears, as it is wept.

„Strictly speaking I wasn’t there. Strictly speaking I believe I’ve never been anywhere.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: Normally I didn’t see a great deal. I didn’t hear a great deal either. I didn’t pay attention. Strictly speaking I wasn’t there. Strictly speaking I believe I’ve never been anywhere.

„Personally of course I regret everything.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: Personally of course I regret everything. Not a word, not a deed, not a thought, not a need, not a grief, not a joy, not a girl, not a boy, not a doubt, not a trust, not a scorn, not a lust, not a hope, not a fear, not a smile, not a tear, not a name, not a face, no time, no place, that I do not regret, exceedingly. An ordure, from beginning to end. Part I, p. 37

„By nature I mean here, like the naïvest realist, a composite of perceiver and perceived, not a datum, an experience.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: By nature I mean here, like the naïvest realist, a composite of perceiver and perceived, not a datum, an experience. All I wish to suggest is that the tendency and accomplishment of this painting are fundamentally those of previous painting, straining to enlarge the statement of a compromise. Also quoted in "Beckett and Failure", in Realism, Issue 5 (June 2011) http://www.hypocritereader.com/5/beckett-and-failure

„I have never been disappointed, and I often was in the early days, without feeling at the same time, or a moment later, an undeniable relief.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: Yes, I don’t know why, but I have never been disappointed, and I often was in the early days, without feeling at the same time, or a moment later, an undeniable relief.

„I wish them all an atrocious life and then the fires and ice of hell and in the execrable generations to come an honoured name.“

—  Samuel Beckett
Context: Let me say before I go any further that I forgive nobody. I wish them all an atrocious life and then the fires and ice of hell and in the execrable generations to come an honoured name.
