„Once you have started, the only way back is to go forward.“

—  Imre Kertész
Context: There was truth in Diaz’s logic, yes: our line of work is like that. Once you have started, the only way back is to go forward. p. 91.

„I am sick of atrocities, though these are now the natural order of our world.“

—  Imre Kertész
Context: I am sick of atrocities, though these are now the natural order of our world. And I would still like to act! p. 37.

„Man may live like a worm, but he writes like a god. There was a time when that secret was known, but now it has been forgotten; the world is composed of disintegrating fragments, an incoherent dark chaos, sustained by writing alone.“

—  Imre Kertész
Context: But I believe in writing — nothing else; just writing. Man may live like a worm, but he writes like a god. There was a time when that secret was known, but now it has been forgotten; the world is composed of disintegrating fragments, an incoherent dark chaos, sustained by writing alone. If you have a concept of the world, if you have not yet forgotten all that has happened, that you have a world at all, it is writing that has created that for you, and ceaselessly goes on creating it; Logos, the invisible spider’s thread that holds our lives together.

„What we usually mean by fate is what we least understand, that is to say, ourselves“

—  Imre Kertész
Context: What we usually mean by fate is what we least understand, that is to say, ourselves, that subversive, unknown individual constantly plotting against us, whom, estranged and alienated but still bowing with disgust before his might, we call, for the of simplicity, fate.

„Only from our stories can we discover that our stories have come to an end“

—  Imre Kertész
Context: Only from our stories can we discover that our stories have come to an end, otherwise we would go on living as if there were still something for us to continue (our stories, for example); that is, we would go on living in error.

„Giving state support to literature is the state's sneaky way for the state liquidation of literature.“

—  Imre Kertész
Context: The state is always the same. The only reason it financed literature up till now was in order to liquidate it. Giving state support to literature is the state's sneaky way for the state liquidation of literature.

„For Kingbitter the Hamlet question did not run “To be or not to be?” but “Am I or am I not?”“

—  Imre Kertész
Context: For Kingbitter the Hamlet question did not run “To be or not to be?” but “Am I or am I not?”.

There was a time when that secret was known, but now it has been forgotten; the world is composed of disintegrating fragments, an incoherent dark chaos, sustained by writing alone.
