When I was a little boy, they called me a liar, but now that I am grown up, they call me a writer.
I am thankful, of course, for the prize and thankful to God for each story, each idea, each word, each day.
A story to me means a plot where there is some surprise. Because that is how life is - full of surprises.
Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression.
We must believe in free will, we have no choice.
Our knowledge is a little island in a great ocean of nonknowledge.
There is great treasure there behind our skull and this is true about all of us. This little treasure has great, great powers, and I would say we only have learnt a very, very small part of what it can do.
Doubt is part of all religion. All the religious thinkers were doubters.
The very essence of literature is the war between emotion and intellect, between life and death. When literature becomes too intellectual - when it begins to ignore the passions, the emotions - it becomes sterile, silly, and actually without substance.
The waste basket is the writer's best friend.
The greatness of art is not to find what is common but what is unique.
A good writer is basically a story teller, not a scholar or a redeemer of mankind.
The analysis of character is the highest human entertainment.
There will be no justice as long as man will stand with a knife or with a gun and destroy those who are weaker than he is.
Originality is not seen in single words or even in sentences. Originality is the sum total of a man's thinking or his writing.
We write not only for children but also for their parents. They, too, are serious children.
If you keep on saying things are going to be bad, you have a good chance of being a prophet.
Kindness, I've discovered, is everything in life.
When you betray somebody else, you also betray yourself.
I did not become a vegetarian for my health, I did it for the health of the chickens.
We know what a person thinks not when he tells us what he thinks, but by his actions.
The second half of the twentieth century is a complete flop.
People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times.
Sometimes love is stronger than a man's convictions.
If you keep saying things are going to be bad, you have a good chance of being a prophet.
For those who are willing to make an effort, great miracles and wonderful treasures are in store.
What nature delivers to us is never stale. Because what nature creates has eternity in it.
