Guenter Grass

Guenter Grass

German novelist, poet, playwright, illustrator, graphic artist, sculptor and recipient of the 1999 Nobel Prize in Literature
Today I know that all things are watching, that nothing goes unseen, that even wallpaper has a better memory than human beings. It's not God in his heaven who sees everything. A kitchen chair, a clothes hanger, a half-filled ashtray, or the wooden replica of a woman named Niobe can serve perfectly well as an unforgetting witness to our every deed.More Guenter Grass quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There must be reasons why we men are so hipped on breasts as if we'd all been weaned too soon.More Guenter Grass quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What can you say about a guy who lets himself be saddled with a baby when he's thirty-five and losing his hair? Love? Forget about that till you're past seventy, and by then the parts will have stopped working anyway.More Guenter Grass quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I did not volunteer for the Waffen SS, but was, as were thousands of my year group, conscripted. I did not then know as a 17-year-old that it was a criminal unit. I thought it was an elite unit.More Guenter Grass quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Whenever there has been talk of exterminating rats, others, who were not rats, have been exterminated.More Guenter Grass quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
