Ви́тольд Гомбро́вич — польский писатель. Большинство его произведений гротескны и высмеивают стереотипы польского традиционного историко-национального сознания.


„В XX веке творчество Гомбровича — явление уникальное, ибо там нет ни одного описания полового акта.“ Чеслав Милош

„Serious literature does not exist to make life easy but to complicate it.“


„Man is profoundly dependent on the reflection of himself in another man's soul, be it even the soul of an idiot.“ Ferdydurke

„Don't be fooled by your own wisdom“

„Great! I've written something stupid, but I haven't signed a contract with anyone to produce solely wise and perfect works. I gave vent to my stupidity... and here I am, reborn.“ Ferdydurke

„Beauty beheld in solitude is even more lethal.“ Ferdydurke

„Rzecz prosta, im mądrzejszy czytelnik, tym i książka okaże się mądrzejsza; im zaś czytelnik głupszy i bardziej jałowy, tym i książka będzie głupsza.“ Bacacay

„We say 'forest' but this word is made of the unknown, the unfamiliar, the unencompassed. The earth. Clods of dirt. Pebbles. On a clear day you rest among ordinary, everyday things that have been familiar to you since childhood, grass, bushes, a dog (or a cat), a chair, but that changes when you realize that every object is an enormous army, an inexhaustible swarm.“


„Our element is unending immaturity.“ Ferdydurke

„Against the background of general freakishness the case of my particular freakishness was lost.“ Ferdydurke

„Great poetry must be admired, because it is great and because it is poetry, and so we admire it.“ Ferdydurke

„Wielka Poezja będąc wielką i będąc poezją nie może nie zachwycać nas, a więc zachwyca!“ Ferdydurke


„Any artist who respects himself ought to be, and in every sense of the term, an emigre.“

„For Kierkegaard, for Heidegger, for Sartre, the more profound the awareness, the more authentic the existence. They measure honesty and the essence of experience by the degree of awareness. But is our humanity really built on awareness? Doesn't awareness--that forced, extreme awareness--arise among us, not from us, as something created by effort, the mutual perfecting of ourselves in it, the confirming of something that one philosopher forces onto another? Isn't man, therefore, in his private reality, something childish and always beneath his own awareness? And doesn't he feel awareness to be, at the same time, something alien, imposed and unimportant? If this is how it is, this furtive childhood, this concealed degradation are ready to explode your systems sooner or later.“ Dziennik 1953 - 1956

„Not surprisingly, because too much attention to one object leads to distraction, this one object conceals everything else, and when we focus on one point on the map we know that all other points are eluding us.“ Cosmos

„You, oh mature ones, keep company solely with other mature ones, and your maturity is so mature that it can only chum up with maturity!“ Ferdydurke
