Vita Di Pi Quotes

Mors certa, vita incerta, as Mr. Sloat occasionally declared. Isidore, although he had heard the expression a number of times, retained only a dim notion as to its meaning. After all, if a chickenhead could fathom Latin he would cease to be a chickenhead.
— Philip K. Dick —

Sentivo il sapere della vita d'ogni giorno, che non va da nessuna parte, e sta sospesa come una nuvola sopra un burrone. Per questo i viaggi ti ubriacano subito, si diventa assuefatti all'eccitazione degli spostamenti, allora sembra che la vita debba andare da qualche parte ...

— Gianni Celati

Nella vita: chi non risica, non rosica," he said finally, his voice quiet. "In life: nothing ventured, nothing gained. My mom used to tell us that. It's been a long time, but I can still hear her saying it.

— J.M. Darhower

Con la fede, vivete con la calma e la pazienza nel periodo peggiore nella vita.
With faith, thrive calmly and patiently on worst times in life.

— Angelica Hopes

Look here Vita - throw over your man, and we'll go to Hampton Court and dine on the river together and walk in the garden in the moonlight and come home late and have a bottle of wine and get tipsy, and I'll tell you all the things I have in my head, millions, myriads - They won't stir by day, only by dark on the river. Think of that. Throw over your man, I say, and come.

— Virginia Woolf

Grose's Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue (1811) records that: The Welch are said to be so remarkably fond of cheese, that in cases of difficulty their midwives apply a piece of toasted cheese to the janua vita [gates of life] to attract and entice the young Taffy, who on smelling it makes most vigorous efforts to come forth.

— Mark Forsyth

Rosse eran le labbra, lo sguardo forte,
gialle come l'oro le chiome torte,
bianca la pelle qual lebbra fatale,
l'Incubo era lei, VITA-NELLA-MORTE,
che fredda addensa il sangue mortale.

— Anne Rice

Aveva detto una volta a Serafina Pekkala che a lui volare non importava, che era soltanto un lavoro come un altro, ma non parlava sul serio. Levarsi in alto, con un buon vento alle spalle e un nuovo mondo davanti: cosa poteva esserci di meglio in questa vita?

A lifetime

sufficiently long
for people to get what there is of it

— Piet Hein

Woolf worried about the childlessness from time to time, and suffered from the imposed anxiety that she was not, unlike her friend Vita Sackville-West, a real woman. I do not know what kind of woman one would have to be to stand unflinchingly in front of The Canon, but I would guess, a real one. There is something sadistic in the whip laid on women to prove themselves as mothers and wives at the same time as making their way as artists. The abnormal effort that can be diverted or divided. We all know the story of Coleridge and the Man from Porlock. What of the woman writer and a whole family of Porlocks?
For most of us the dilemma is rhetorical but those women who are driven with consummate energy through a single undeniable channel should be applauded and supported as vigorously as the men who have been setting themselves apart for centuries.

— Jeanette Winterson

Come tanti altri americani, cercava di costruirsi una vita che avesse un senso con le cose che trovava nei negozi di regali.

Man's fortune is usually changed at once; life is changeable.
[Lat., Actutum fortunae solent mutarier; varia vita est.]

— Plautus

The human condition comprehends more than the condition under which life has been given to man. Men are conditioned beings because everything they come in contact with turns immediately into a condition of their existence. The world in which the vita activa spends itself consists of things produced by human activities; but the things that owe their existence exclusively to men nevertheless constantly condition their human makers.

— Hannah Arendt
