Ivo Andrić – Sreća

Budite radosni kad god vam se za to pruža mogućnost, i kad god za to nalazite snage u sebi, jer trenutci čiste radosti vrijede i znače više nego čitavi dani i meseci našeg života provrdeni u mutnoj igri naših sitnih i krupnih strasti i prohtjeva. A minut čiste radosti ostaje u nama zauvjek, kao sjaj koji ništa ne može zamračiti.

Ameli Notomb – “Lastavičin dnevnik”

Budimo se u tami u potpunom neznanju. Gde smo, šta se događa? U jednom smo trenutku sve zaboravili. Ne znamo jesmo li dete ili odrasla osoba, muškarac ili žena, krivi ili nedužni. Je li to tama tamnice ili noći?
Znamo samo jedno, tim jasnije što nam je to jedina spoznaja: živi smo. Nikada nismo bili toliko živi, i to je sve. Od čega se sastoji život u tom deliću sekunde u kojem imamo retku povlasticu da budemo lišeni identiteta?
Evo od čega: od straha.
No nema veće slobode od tog kratkog zaborava buđenja. Dete smo koje poznaje jezik. Možemo imenovati bezimeno otkriće svog rođenja: gurnuti smo u stravu živog bića.
U tom razdoblju česte teskobe, čak se i ne sećamo da se tako nešto može dogoditi prilikom buđenja. Ustajemo, tražimo vrata, izgubljeni smo kao u hotelu. A nakon sećanja odjednom opet nastane telo i vrate mu ono što služi kao duša. Umireni smo i razočarani: mi smo, dakle, to; mi smo , dakle, samo to.
Odmah potom vrati se spoznaja o geografiji vlastitog zatvora. Moja soba vodi do umivaonika gde se zapljuskujem ledenom vodom. Šta to nastojimo oribati s lica pomoću te energije i hladnoće?
Potom počinje rutina. Svako ima svoju: kafa i cigarete, čaj i tost ili pas i uzica. Svoju smo putanju uredili tako da što više umanjimo strah. Zapravo provodimo vreme u borbi protiv straha življenja. Smišljamo definicije kako bismo ga izbegli: zovem se tako i tako, radim tu i tu, moj se posao sastoji od ovoga i ovoga. No skrovita teskoba nastavlja potkopavanje. Ne možemo potpuno ućutkati njen govor. Jer misliš da se zoveš tako i tako, da se tvoj posao sastoji od ovoga i onoga, ali, kada si se probudio, ništa od toga nije postojalo. Možda zato što i ne postoji.

Forrest Gump – Quotes

Forrest Gump: Will you marry me?
[Jenny turns and looks at him]

Forrest Gump: I’d make a good husband, Jenny.
Jenny Curran: You would, Forrest.
Forrest Gump: …But you won’t marry me.
Jenny Curran: [sadly] … You don’t wanna marry me.
Forrest Gump: Why don’t you love me, Jenny?
[Jenny says nothing]
Forrest Gump: I’m not a smart man… but I know what love is.


Forrest Gump: You died on a Saturday morning. And I had you placed here under our tree. And I had that house of your father’s bulldozed to the ground. Momma always said dyin’ was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn’t. Little Forrest, he’s doing just fine. About to start school again soon. I make his breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. I make sure he combs his hair and brushes his teeth every day. Teaching him how to play ping-pong. He’s really good. We fish a lot. And every night, we read a book. He’s so smart, Jenny. You’d be so proud of him. I am. He, uh, wrote a letter, and he says I can’t read it. I’m not supposed to, so I’ll just leave it here for you. Jenny, I don’t know if Momma was right or if, if it’s Lieutenant Dan. I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happening at the same time. I miss you, Jenny. If there’s anything you need, I won’t be far away.


Jenny Curran: Were you scared in Vietnam?
Forrest Gump: Yes. Well, I-I don’t know. Sometimes it would stop raining long enough for the stars to come out… and then it was nice. It was like just before the sun goes to bed down on the bayou. There was always a million sparkles on the water… like that mountain lake. It was so clear, Jenny, it looked like there were two skies one on top of the other. And then in the desert, when the sun comes up, I couldn’t tell where heaven stopped and the earth began. It’s so beautiful.
Jenny Curran: I wish I could’ve been there with you.
Forrest Gump: You were.
