Isabel Allende

Chilean writer and journalist
I like historical fiction. I fell in love with New Orleans the first time I visited it. And I wanted to place a story in New Orleans.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think the spirit survives when we die, and nothing is wasted in nature and just as our material body disintegrates and becomes something else in the soil. The spirit becomes something else, reunites with a spiritual force that is out there in the universe. Not as individuals but as part of this spirituality.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Many children fly like birds, guess other people's dreams, and speak with ghosts, but ... they all outgrow it when they lose their innocence.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I felt an unrelenting restlessness. It was the first time I had ever experienced jealousy, and that emotion clung to my skin day and night like a dark stain, a contamination I could not shed; it became so unbearable that when finally I rid myself of it, I was freed forever of the desire to possess another person or the temptation ever to belong to anyone.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
She was one of those people who was born for the greatness of a single love, for exaggerated hatred, for apocalyptic vengance, and for the most sublime forms of heroism but she was unable to shape her fate to the dimensions of her amorous vocation, so it was lived out as something flat and gray trapped between her mother's sickroom walls, wretched tenements, and the tortured confessions with which this large, opulent, hot-blooded woman made for maternity, abundance, action, and ardor- was consuming herself.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
