Bernard Malamud
Without heroes we're all plain people and don't know how far we can go.
Malamud quotes
There comes a time in a man's life when to get where he has to – if there are no doors or windows – he walks through a wall.
Malamud
We have two lives, Roy, the life we learn with and the life we live with after that. Suffering is what brings us toward happiness.




Malamud Bernard quotes
Levin wanted friendship and got friendliness; he wanted steak and they offered spam.
Malamud Bernard
I think I said "All men are Jews except they don't know it." I doubt I expected anyone to take the statement literally. But I think it's an understandable statement and a metaphoric way of indicating how history, sooner or later, treats all men.
Bernard Malamud quotes
I don't think you can do anything for anyone without giving up something of your own.
Bernard Malamud
Without heroes, we're all plain people, and don't know how far we can go.
Malamud Bernard quotes
"Mourning is a hard business," Cesare said. "If people knew there'd be less death."
Malamud
One can't make pure clay of time's mud. There is no life that can be recaptured wholly; as it was. Which is to say that all biography is ultimately fiction.
Malamud Bernard
If you ever forget you are a Jew a goy will remind you.
Bernard Malamud
Those who write about life, reflect about life…. you see in others who you are.




Bernard Malamud quotes
Life is a tragedy full of joy.
