Zitate David Herbert Lawrence

„Unser Zeitalter ist seinem Wesen nach tragisch, also weigern wir uns, es tragisch zu nehmen. Die Katastrophe ist hereingebrochen, wir stehen vor den Trümmern, wir fangen an, neue kleine Gewohnheiten zu bilden, neue kleine Hoffnungen zu hegen. Es ist ein hartes Stück Arbeit: Kein ebener Weg führt in die Zukunft; wir umgehen die Hindernisse jedoch oder klettern über sie hinweg. Wir müssen leben – einerlei, wie viele Himmel eingestürzt sind.“

—  David Herbert Lawrence, buch Lady Chatterley

Lady Chatterley, Kapitel 1
Original engl.: "Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically. The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habitats, to have new little hopes. It is rather hard work: there is now no smooth road into the future: but we go round, or scramble over the obstacles. We've got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen." - Lady Chatterley's Lover.

„I am part of the sun as my eye is of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea.“

—  D.H. Lawrence

Apocalypse (1930)
Kontext: What man most passionately wants is his living wholeness and his living unison, not his own isolate salvation of his "soul." Man wants his physical fulfillment first and foremost, since now, once and once only, he is in the flesh and potent. For man, the vast marvel is to be alive. For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive. Whatever the unborn and the dead may know, they cannot know the beauty, the marvel of being alive in the flesh. The dead may look after the afterwards. But the magnificent here and now of life in the flesh is ours, and ours alone, and ours only for a time. We ought to dance with rapture that we should be alive and in the flesh, and part of the living, incarnate cosmos. I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. My soul knows that I am part of the human race, my soul is an organic part of the great human soul, as my spirit is part of my nation. In my own very self, I am part of my family. There is nothing of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself, it is only the glitter of the sun on the surface of the waters.

„The world is supposed to be full of possibilities, but they narrow down to pretty few in most personal experience.“

—  D.H. Lawrence, buch Lady Chatterley

Lady Chatterley's Lover (1928)
Kontext: The world is supposed to be full of possibilities, but they narrow down to pretty few in most personal experience. There's lots of good fish in the sea... maybe... but the vast masses seem to be mackerel or herring, and if you're not mackerel or herring yourself you are likely to find very few good fish in the sea.

„Censors are dead men
set up to judge between life and death.“

—  D.H. Lawrence

Censors (1929)
Kontext: Censors are dead men
set up to judge between life and death.
For no live, sunny man would be a censor,
he'd just laugh.

„Augustine said that God created the universe new every day: and to the living, emotional soul, this is true.“

—  D.H. Lawrence

A Propos of Lady Chatterley's Lover (1929)
Kontext: Augustine said that God created the universe new every day: and to the living, emotional soul, this is true. Every dawn dawns upon an entirely new universe, every Easter lights up an entirely new glory of a new world opening in utterly new flower. And the soul of man and the soul of woman is new in the same way, with the infinite delight of life and the ever-newness of life. So a man and a woman are new to one another throughout a life-time, in the rhythm of marriage that matches the rhythm of the year.
