Цитаты Вислава Шимборская

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

—  Wisława Szymborska

"Soliloquy for Cassandra"
Poems New and Collected (1998), No End of Fun (1967)
Контексте: 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.

„Our stockpile of antiquity grows constantly“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"Census"
Poems New and Collected (1998), No End of Fun (1967)
Контексте: 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.

„Gone, lost, scattered to the four winds. It still surprises me
how little now remains“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"A Speech at the Lost-and-Found"
Poems New and Collected (1998), Could Have (1972)
Контексте: Gone, lost, scattered to the four winds. It still surprises me
how little now remains, one first person sing., temporarily
declined in human form, just now making such a fuss
about a blue umbrella left yesterday on a bus.

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

—  Wisława Szymborska

"Conversation with a Stone".
Poems New and Collected (1998), Salt (1962)
Контексте: 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.

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

—  Wisława Szymborska

"View with a Grain of Sand"
Poems New and Collected (1998), The People on the Bridge (1986)
Контексте: 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.

„My apologies to great questions for small answers.“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"Under One Small Star"
Poems New and Collected (1998), Could Have (1972)
Контексте: My apologies to the felled tree for the table's four legs.
My apologies to great questions for small answers.

„This object took three billion years to emerge.“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"A Film from the Sixties"
Poems New and Collected (1998), No End of Fun (1967)
Контексте: This adult male. This person on earth.
Ten billion nerve cells. Ten pints of blood
pumped by ten ounces of heart.
This object took three billion years to emerge.

„And how can we talk of order overall
when the very placement of the stars
leaves us doubting just what shines for whom?“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"Psalm"
Poems New and Collected (1998), A Large Number (1976)
Контексте: And how can we talk of order overall
when the very placement of the stars
leaves us doubting just what shines for whom?Not to speak of the fog's reprehensible drifting!
And dust blowing all over the steppes
as if they hadn't been partitioned!
And the voices coasting on obliging airwaves,
that conspiratorial squeaking, those indecipherable mutters!
Only what is human can truly be foreign.

„Within him, there's awful darkness, in the darkness a small boy.“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"A Film from the Sixties"
Poems New and Collected (1998), No End of Fun (1967)
Контексте: Within him, there's awful darkness, in the darkness a small boy. God of humor, do something about him, OK?
God of humor, do something about him today.

„Our times are still not safe and sane enough
for faces to show ordinary sorrow.“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"Smiles"
Poems New and Collected (1998), A Large Number (1976)
Контексте: The going's rough, and so we need the laugh
of bright incisors, molars of goodwill.
Our times are still not safe and sane enough
for faces to show ordinary sorrow.

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

—  Wisława Szymborska

The Poet and the World (1996)
Контексте: 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.

„After every war
someone has to tidy up.“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"The End and the Beginning"
Poems New and Collected (1998), The End and the Beginning (1993)
Контексте: 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.

„Whatever inspiration is, it's born from a continuous "I don't know."“

—  Wisława Szymborska

The Poet and the World (1996)
Контексте: Inspiration is not the exclusive privilege of poets or artists. There is, there has been, there will always be a certain group of people whom inspiration visits. It's made up of all those who've consciously chosen their calling and do their job with love and imagination. It may include doctors, teachers, gardeners — I could list a hundred more professions. Their work becomes one continuous adventure as long as they manage to keep discovering new challenges in it. Difficulties and setbacks never quell their curiosity. A swarm of new questions emerges from every problem that they solve. Whatever inspiration is, it's born from a continuous "I don't know."

„It looks like poets will always have their work cut out for them.“

—  Wisława Szymborska

The Poet and the World (1996)
Контексте: Granted, in daily speech, where we don't stop to consider every word, we all use phrases like "the ordinary world," "ordinary life," "the ordinary course of events"… But in the language of poetry, where every word is weighed, nothing is usual or normal. Not a single stone and not a single cloud above it. Not a single day and not a single night after it. And above all, not a single existence, not anyone's existence in this world.
It looks like poets will always have their work cut out for them.

„I am a tarsier and a tarsier's son,
the grandson and great-grandson of tarsiers“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"Tarsier"
Poems New and Collected (1998), No End of Fun (1967)
Контексте: I am a tarsier and a tarsier's son,
the grandson and great-grandson of tarsiers,
a tiny creature, made up of two pupils
and whatever simply could not be left out...

„As far as you've come can't be undone.“

—  Wisława Szymborska

"On Death, Without Exaggeration"
Poems New and Collected (1998), The People on the Bridge (1986)
Контексте: 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.

„I'm working on the world,
revised, improved edition“

—  Wisława Szymborska

I'm Working on the World"
Poems New and Collected (1998), Calling Out to Yeti (1957)
Контексте: I'm working on the world,
revised, improved edition,
featuring fun for fools
blues for brooders,
combs for bald pates,
tricks for old dogs.
