Ivo Andric
When I am not desperate, I am worthless.
Andric quotes
I gave in to life. I was not defeated but outplayed.
Andric
I do not fear invisible worlds.




Andric Ivo quotes
One should not be afraid of humans.
Well, I am not afraid of humans, but of what is inhuman in them.
Andric Ivo
In the journal of my misery, each sorrow competes for the first place in length and strength.
Ivo Andric quotes
It seems to me, that if people only knew how hard it was for me to endure life, they would find it easier to forgive me for all the wrong things Iíve done and all the good things that I have failed to do. And they would still find a little compassion within them to pity me.
Ivo Andric
What can and doesn't have to be always, at the end, surrenders to something that has to be.
Andric Ivo quotes
And then the death will come. The great parting, but the least painful of all the goodbyes we ever knew. For in death, only one shall grieve. And so far we have always, at every parting, grieved together.
Andric
What doesn't hurt - is not life; what doesn't pass - is not happiness.
Andric Ivo
What does your sorrow do while you sleep? -Itís awake and waiting. And when it loses patience, it wakes me up.
Ivo Andric
If people would know how little brain is ruling the world, they would die of fear.




Ivo Andric quotes
Of everything that man erects and builds in his urge for living nothing is in my eyes better and more valuable than bridges. They are more important than houses, more sacred than shrines. Belonging to everyone and being equal to everyone, useful, always built with a sense, on the spot where most human needs are crossing, they are more durable than other buildings and they do not serve for anything secret or bad.
