Жюлье́н Грин , урожденный Джу́лиан Х́артридж Грин — французский писатель американского происхождения.


„Правда только в качании веток на фоне неба.“

„«Ou est la sagesse que le savoir nous a fait perdu? Ou est le savoir que nous avons perdu par l'information?» «Где мудрость, которую знание заставило нас потерять? Где знание, которое мы заменили информацией?»“


„I am probably exaggerating a little, but I owe my equilibrium to ink and paper.“

„But nowadays my heart is empty and the boxwood has lost its magic scent; yes, absolutely and entirely. The creature that I was no longer exists. When I speak to her she does not understand me; I think of her, already, as of some one I have known but who no longer has any connection with myself.

This sort of death of part of oneself strikes terror into my heart.
Life presents itself to me as a progressive series of annihilations, until in time one arrives at the general destruction of all memory and the barren slumber of one's conscience.“
Le Visionnaire

„Faith means walking on the waters.“ Journal

„In growing older, we become our parents.“

„I enter the world called real as one enters a mist. Our life is a book that writes itself and whose principal themes sometimes escape us. We are like characters in a novel who do not always understand what the author wants of them. I don't want to go on playing in a world where everyone cheats. Where everyone cheats - not only men and women, but sometimes even God.“ Journal

„The greatest explorer on this earth never takes voyages as long as those of the man who descends to the depth of his heart.“


„A novelist is like a scout commissioned to go and see what is happening in the depth of the soul. He comes back and reports what he has observed. He never lives on the surface but only inhabits the darkest regions“ Journal

„Paris is a city that might well be spoken of in the plural, as the Greeks used to speak of Athens, for there are many Parises, and the tourists’ Paris is only superficially related to the Paris of the Parisians. The foreigner driving through Paris from one museum to another is quite oblivious to the presence of a world he brushes past without seeing. Until you have wasted time in a city, you cannot pretend to know it well. The soul of a big city is not to be grasped so easily; in order to make contact with it, you have to have been bored, you have to have suffered a bit in those places that contain it. Anyone can get hold of a guide and tick off all the monuments, but within the very confines of of Paris there is another city as difficult to access as Timbuktu once was.“ Paris

„On ne sait jamais quand la vie va vous trahir; inutile de compter sur le lendemain, ni même sur l'heure qui va suivre; il n'y a de certain que la mort.“ Leviathan

„A cidade, efectivamente, sorri apenas àqueles que se aproximam dela e que deambulam pelas suas ruas; a esses, ela fala numa linguagem tranquilizadora e familiar, mas a alma de Paris só se revela de longe e do alto, e é no silêncio do céu que se escuta o imenso grito patético de orgulho e de fé que ela eleva na direcção das nuvens.“ Paris


„Die Welt war voll von Leuten, die ihren Weg wußten, die einen hierhin, die andern dorthin. Wo, in diesem System aus Sorgen und Freuden, war mein Platz? Ich empfand mich als das reichste und zugleich nutzloseste der Wesen. Wie war es nur möglich, daß Menschen bereit waren, zum Beispiel stundenlang die Säle des Luxembourg zu bewachen, oder im Senat vor sich hin zu dösen, oder in einem Ladenkontor Rechnungen zu schreiben? Was besagte diese Ordnung, die das Leben abtötete? Denn allein die Tatsache 'Leben' ist bedrückend, und man gewöhnt sich daran wohl nur, indem man sich mit idiotischen Beschäftigungen überhäuft. Ich aber war von meinem bloßen Dasein erschöpft.“

„A alma de uma grande cidade não se deixa apreender facilmente; é preciso, para se comunicar com ela, termo-nos aborrecido, termos de algum modo sofrido nos lugares que a circunscrevem.“ Paris

„... quando me passeio por Passy parece-me que deambulo por dentro de mim mesmo e que tropeço incessantemente na minha infância.“ Paris

„What we give the world, we have borrowed from no one; it is ours. It may be taken from us, stolen from us, but imitated? - never.“ Paris
