Marguerite Duras

Marguerite Duras

It was the men I deceived the most that I loved the most.More Marguerite Duras [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I see journalists as the manual workers, the laborers of the word. Journalism can only be literature when it is passionate.More Marguerite Duras [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To love one child and to love all children, whether living or dead --somewhere these two loves come together. To love a no-good but humble punk and to love an honest man who believes himself to be an honest man --somewhere these, too, come together.More Marguerite Duras [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No other human being, no woman, no poem or music, book or painting can replace alcohol in its power to give man the illusion of real creation.More Marguerite Duras [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Alcohol is barren. The words a man speaks in the night of drunkenness fade like the darkness itself at the coming of day.More Marguerite Duras [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:43]
Heterosexuality is dangerous. It tempts you to aim at a perfect duality of desire.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:00]
I believe that always, or almost always, in all childhoods and in all the lives that follow them, the mother represents madness. Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:04]
In love there are no vacations. No such thing. Love has to be lived fully with its boredom and all that.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:16]
It's afterwards you realize that the feeling of happiness you had with a man didn't necessarily prove that you loved him.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:27]
It's only women who are not really quite women at all, frivolous women who have no idea, who neglect repairs.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:32]
Journalism without a moral position is impossible. Every journalist is a moralist. It's absolutely unavoidable.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:37]
Men like women who write. Even though they don't say so. A writer is a foreign country.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:42]
The house a woman creates is a Utopia. She can't help it - can't help trying to interest her nearest and dearest not in happiness itself but in the search for it.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:57]
When a woman drinks it's as if an animal were drinking, or a child. Alcoholism is scandalous in a woman, and a female alcoholic is rare, a serious matter. It's a slur on the divine in our nature.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:03]
You have to be very fond of men. Very, very fond. You have to be very fond of them to love them. Otherwise they're simply unbearable.More Marguerite Duras [09/23/2011 11:09:08]
It's afterwards you realize that the feeling of happiness you had with a man didn't necessarily prove that you loved himMore Marguerite Duras [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Frigidity is desire imagined by a woman who doesn't desire the man offering himself to her. It's the desire of a woman for a man who hasn't yet come to her, whom she doesn't yet know. She's faithful to this stranger even before she belongs to him. Frigidity is the non-desire for whatever is not him.More Marguerite Duras [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Journalism without a moral position is impossible. Every journalist is a moralist. It's absolutely unavoidable.More Marguerite Duras [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The best way to fill time is to waste it.More Marguerite Duras [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The house a woman creates is a Utopia. She can't help it -- can't help trying to interest her nearest and dearest not in happiness itself but in the search for it.More Marguerite Duras [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The woman is the home. That's where she used to be, and that's where she still is. You might ask me, What if a man tries to be part of the home -- will the woman let him? I answer yes. Because then he becomes one of the children.More Marguerite Duras [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am dead. I have no desire for you. My body no longer wants the one who doesn’t love.More Marguerite Duras [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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.More Marguerite Duras [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You have to be very fond of men. Very, very fond. You have to be very fond of them to love them. Otherwise they're simply unbearable.More Marguerite Duras [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
