„I remember it so clearly —
how people, seeing me, would break off in midword.
Laughter died.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: I remember it so clearly — how people, seeing me, would break off in midword. Laughter died. Lovers' hands unclasped. Children ran to their mothers. I didn't even know their short-lived names. And that song about a little green leaf — no one ever finished it near me. "Soliloquy for Cassandra"

„Our stockpile of antiquity grows constantly“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: Our stockpile of antiquity grows constantly, it's overflowing, reckless squatters jostle for a place in history, hordes of sword fodder, Hector's nameless extras, no less brave than he, thousands upon thousands of singular faces, each the first and last for all time, in each a pair of inimitable eyes. How easy it was to live not knowing this, so sentimental, so spacious. "Census"

„Even sight heightened to become all-seeing
will do you no good without a sense of taking part.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: No other sense can make up for your missing sense of taking part. Even sight heightened to become all-seeing will do you no good without a sense of taking part. You shall not enter, you have only a sense of what the sense should be, only its seed, imagination. "Conversation with a Stone".

„The window has a wonderful view of a lake,
but the view doesn't view itself.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: The window has a wonderful view of a lake, but the view doesn't view itself. It exists in this world colorless, shapeless, soundless, odorless, and painless. "View with a Grain of Sand"

„He's no end of fun, for all you say.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: He's no end of fun, for all you say. Poor little beggar. A human, if ever we saw one. "No End of Fun"

„My apologies to great questions for small answers.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: My apologies to the felled tree for the table's four legs. My apologies to great questions for small answers. "Under One Small Star"

„Don't bear me ill will, speech, that I borrow weighty words,
then labor heavily so that they may seem light.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: I know I won't be justified as long as I live, since I myself stand in my own way. Don't bear me ill will, speech, that I borrow weighty words, then labor heavily so that they may seem light. "Under One Small Star"

„He has only just learned to tell dreams from waking“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: He has only just learned to tell dreams from waking; only just realized that he is he; only just whittled with his hand né fin a flint, a rocket ship; easily drowned in the ocean's teaspoon, not even funny enough to tickle the void: sees only with his eyes; hears only with his ears; his speech's personal best is the conditional; he uses his reason to pick holes in reason. In short, he's next to to one, but his head's full of freedom, omniscience and the Being beyond his foolish meat — did you ever! "No End of Fun"

„There's no life
that couldn't be immortal
if only for a moment.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: There's no life that couldn't be immortal if only for a moment.Death always arrives by that very moment too late.In vain it tugs at the knob of the invisible door. As far as you've come can't be undone. "On Death, Without Exaggeration"

„After every war
someone has to tidy up.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: After every war someone has to tidy up. Things won't pick themselves up, after all.Someone has to shove the rubble to the roadsides so the carts loaded with corpses can get by. "The End and the Beginning"

„Something doesn't start
at its usual time.
Something doesn't happen
as it should.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: Something doesn't start at its usual time. Something doesn't happen as it should. Someone was always, always here, then suddenly disappeared and stubbornly stays disappeared. "Cat in an Empty Apartment"

„Contemporary poets are skeptical and suspicious even, or perhaps especially, about themselves.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: Contemporary poets are skeptical and suspicious even, or perhaps especially, about themselves. They publicly confess to being poets only reluctantly, as if they were a little ashamed of it. But in our clamorous times it's much easier to acknowledge your faults, at least if they're attractively packaged, than to recognize your own merits, since these are hidden deeper and you never quite believe in them yourself.

„I felt age within me. Distance.
The futility of wandering. Torpor.“

— Wisława Szymborska
Context: I felt age within me. Distance. The futility of wandering. Torpor. I looked back setting my bundle down. I looked back not knowing where to set my foot. Serpents appeared on my path, spiders, field mice, baby vultures. They were neither good nor evil now — every living thing was simply creeping or hopping along in the mass panic. "Lot's Wife"
