Marguerite Duras
Paradoxically, the freedom of Paris is associated with a persistent belief that nothing ever changes. Paris, they say, is the city that changes least. After an absence of twenty or thirty years, one still recognizes it.
Duras quotes
The best way to fill time is to waste it.
I see journalists as the manual workers, the laborers of the word. Journalism can only be literature when it is passionate.

Duras Marguerite quotes
It was the men I deceived the most that I loved the most.
Duras Marguerite
Alcohol doesn’t console, it doesn’t fill up anyone’s psychological gaps, all it replaces is the lack of God. It doesn’t comfort man. On the contrary, it encourages him in his folly, it transports him to the supreme regions where he is master of his own destiny.
Marguerite Duras quotes
Acting doesn't bring anything to a text. On the contrary, it detracts from it.
Marguerite Duras
It's afterwards you realize that the feeling of happiness you had with a man didn't neccesarily prove that you loved him.
