“عادت بدترین بیماریه. کاری می کنه که آدم به هر بدبختی و هر دردی سر خم کنه و بتونه کنار آدمای نفرت انگیز دووم بیاره”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“خیلی سخته آدمی که خودش رو واسه مردن آماده کرده، بخواد بازم به زندگی برگرده!؛”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“حسادت زانوهارو خم می کنه و خواب رو از آدم می دزده، و جیگر رو آتیش می زنه و فکر رو از کار میندازه. حسادت آدم رو با زهر سوءظن مسموم می کنه، حیثت و اخلاق آدم رو زیر سوال می بره. خودت رو گول خورده حس می کنی و تبدیل به پلیسی میشی که زندانبان معشوقتی! واسه همین باید همیشه عشق رو مرمت کرد”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“Don’t let yourself be regimented by dogma, by uniforms, by doctrines, don’t let yourselves be fooled by those who command you, by those who promise, who frighten, by those who want to replace one master with another, don’t be flock of sheep, for heaven’s sake, don’t hide under the umbrella of other people’s guilt, think with your own brains, remember that each of you is somebody, a valuable individual, a responsible, his own maker, defend your being, the kernel of all freedom, freedom is a duty, a duty even more than right”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“برات نوشتم دیگه طاقت ندارم بشنوم که همه چیز تقصیر ژنرالا و مایه دارا و صاحبای قدرته! پس ما چه کاره ایم؟ اسم و رسم و شماره شناسنامه هایی که فقط به درد انتخابات و جنگا می خورن؟ یه ابزار تو دست مذهبیا و ایسما و ایدئولوژیا؟”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man



“What's the point anyway — Of suffering, dying? It teaches us to live, boy. A man who does not struggle does not live, he survives.”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“Love isn’t putting chain on someone who wants to struggle and is ready to die for it, love is letting him die in the way he’s chosen.”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“If a man is a man and not a sheep in the flock, he has a survival instinct in him that leads him to fight even if he realizes he’s fighting in vain, even if he knows he will lose..”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“غافلگیر شدن همیشه آدم رو اذیت می کنه، چه خوب باشه و چه بد آدم نمی تونه راحت باهاش کنار بیاد، چون یه جور اجباره که تعادل رو به هم میزنه و با این حال باید تحملش کرد”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“Lottate, ragionate col vostro cervello, ricordate che ciascuno è qualcuno, un individuo prezioso, responsabile, artefice di se stesso, difendetelo il vostro io, nocciolo di ogni libertà, la libertà è un dovere, prima che un diritto è un dovere.”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man



“Ho guadagnato una vita,
un biglietto per la morte,
e viaggio ancora.
In certi momenti
ho creduto d'essere giunto,
alla fine del viaggio mi sbagliavo.
Erano solo imprevisti del cammino.”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“I’ll parade with those who are alone like me. They exist. They are very few, but they exist. I’ll find them.”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“أنا لست قادرا علي قتل رجل , لكن الطاغية ليس رجلا إنما هو طاغية”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“But to deny fate is arrogance, to declare that we are the sole shapers of our existence is madness;if you deny fate life becomes the series of missed opportunities, a regret for what never was and could have been, a remorse of what was not done and could have been done, and the present is wasted, twisted into another missed oppurtunity.”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“الحرية هي واجب, واجب أكثر من كونها حقا!”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man



“ما أغرب طبيعة الجنس البشري حقا: طالما تتوقع شيئا منهم لا يعطونك شيئا و عنما لا تتوقع منهم يعطونك كل شيء”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“لو كان الموت هو نهاية كل شيء, لنال الاشرار صفقة طيبة بالموت ,ولسعدوا بسكون ابدانهم,اذ مع الموت يتحررون ايضا من الروح التي اقترفت شرهم”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“I didn't want to kill a man. I'm not capable of killing a man. I wanted to kill a tyrant.”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“Il vero inquisitore è un uomo lugubre. Filosoficamente è il vero fascista, cioè il fascista privo di colore che serve tutti i fascismi, tutti i totalitarismi, tutti i regimi purché servano a mettere gli uomini in fila come croci in un cimitero. Lo trovi ovunque vi sia un’ideologia, un principio assoluto, una dottrina che proibisca all’individuo d’essere sé stesso.”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man


“Dire che il popolo è sempre vittima, sempre innocente, è un'ipocrisia e una menzogna e un insulto alla dignità di ogni uomo, di ogni donna, di ogni persona. Un popolo è fatto di uomini, donne, persone, ciascuna di queste persone ha il dovere di scegliere, di decidere per se stessa; e non si cessa di scegliere, di decidere, perché non si è né generali né ricchi né potenti.”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man



“Poi coloro che chiamavi rivoluzionari del cazzo, futuri seguaci dei fanatici, degli assassini che sparano revolverate in nome del proletariato e della classe operaia aggiungendo abusi agli abusi, infamie alle infamie, potere essi stessi. E guardali mentre alzano il pugno, gli ipocriti, con le loro barbette di falsi sovversivi, la loro grinta borghese di burocrati a venire, padroni a venire. Infine i preti, sintesi d’ogni potere presente e passato e futuro, di ogni prepotenza, di ogni dittatura. E guardali mentre si pavoneggiano nelle loro tonache oscure, coi loro simboli insensati, i loro turiboli d’incenso che annebbia gli occhi e la mente. In mezzo ad essi il Gran Sacerdote, il patriarca della chiesa ortodossa che ammantato di seta viola, grondante di ori e di collane, di croci preziose, zaffiri rubini smeraldi, salmodiava «Eonìa imì tu esù. Eterna sia la memoria di te»,”
― Oriana Fallaci, quote from A Man

“The next thing I want to do is to make a prophecy to you, the ones who voted against me; I’m now at that moment when human beings are most prone to turn prophet, when they’re about to die. I tell you, you Athenians who have become my killers, that just as soon as I’m dead you’ll meet with a punishment that – Zeus knows – will be much harsher than the one you’ve meted out to me by putting me to death. You’ve acted as you have now because you think it’ll let you off being challenged for an account of your life; in fact, I tell you, you’ll find 39d the case quite the opposite. There’ll be more, not fewer, people challenging you – people that I was holding back, without your noticing it, and they’ll be all the harsher because they’re younger, and you’ll be crosser than you are now. If you think killing people will stop anyone reproaching you for not living correctly, you’re not thinking straight. Being”
― Plato, quote from The Trial and Death of Socrates


“I was grown up long before the grown ups were the grown ups.”
― Aporva Kala, quote from The Chronicle of Sapta Sindhu

About BookQuoters

BookQuoters is a community of passionate readers who enjoy sharing the most meaningful, memorable and interesting quotes from great books. As the world communicates more and more via texts, memes and sound bytes, short but profound quotes from books have become more relevant and important. For some of us a quote becomes a mantra, a goal or a philosophy by which we live. For all of us, quotes are a great way to remember a book and to carry with us the author’s best ideas.

We thoughtfully gather quotes from our favorite books, both classic and current, and choose the ones that are most thought-provoking. Each quote represents a book that is interesting, well written and has potential to enhance the reader’s life. We also accept submissions from our visitors and will select the quotes we feel are most appealing to the BookQuoters community.

Founded in 2023, BookQuoters has quickly become a large and vibrant community of people who share an affinity for books. Books are seen by some as a throwback to a previous world; conversely, gleaning the main ideas of a book via a quote or a quick summary is typical of the Information Age but is a habit disdained by some diehard readers. We feel that we have the best of both worlds at BookQuoters; we read books cover-to-cover but offer you some of the highlights. We hope you’ll join us.
