Isabel Allende

Isabel Allende

Chilean writer and journalist
I try desperately to conquer the transitory nature of my existence, to trap moments before they evenesce, to untangle the confusion of my past. Every instant disappears in a breath and immediately becomes the past; reality is ephemeral and changing, pure longing.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I learned very quickly that when you emigrate, you lose the crutches that have been your support; you must begin from zero, because the past is erased with a single stroke and no one cares where you’re from or what you did before.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Only that, nothing more - a tiny beam of light to show some hidden aspect of reality, to help decipher and understand it and thus to initiate, if possible, a change in the conscience of some readers.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
At my age days dissolve like salt in water; the day's gone and I don't even know what I've done with the hours.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It bothers them that instead of taking on the role of abandoned lover, I have become a happy wife. They relish seeing strong women like you and me humiliated. They cannot forgive us that we triumphed where so many others fail...Courage is a virtue appreciated in a male but considered a defect in our gender. Bold women are a threat to a world that is out of balance, in favor of men. That is why they work so hard to mistreat and destroy us.More Isabel Allende quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
