Quotes On Love And Life Biography.


21. the HISTORY of LOVE
Nicole Krauss 2005

A complex, inventive and intelligent story told in alternating format, each distinct from the other. It is about Leopold Gursky, an old man coming to terms with his death, while maintaining his everlasting longing for his old love. It is the story of Alma, a young inquisitive girl who set out looking for somebody that her Mother can love after her father died. And it is the story of a book called the History of Love.

"When they write my obituary. Tomorrow. Or the next day. It will say, LEO GURSKY IS SURVIVED BY AN APARTMENT FULL OF SHIT. I'm surprised I haven't been buried alive."

"She read and read. When she finished she looked up. For a long time she didn't speak. Then she said maybe I shouldn't make up everything, because that made it hard to believe anything."

"And if a man who once upon a time had been a boy who promised he'd never fall in love with another girl as long as he lived kept his promise, it wasn't because he was stubborn or even loyal. He couldn't help it."

"I want to say somewhere:I've tried to be forgiving. And yet. There were times in my life, whole years, when anger got the better of me. Ugliness turned me inside out. There was a certain satisfaction in bitterness. I courted it. It was standing outside and I invited it in. I scowled at the world. And the world scowled back." 


"MY MOTHER NEVER FELL OUT OF LOVE WITH MY FATHER. She's kept her love for him as alive as the summer they first met. In order to this, she's turned life away. Sometimes she subsists on water and air."

"The idea of evolution is so beutiful and sad. Since the earliest life on earth, there have been somewhere between five and fifty billion species, only five to fifty million of which are alive today. So,ninety-nine percent of all species that have ever lived on earth are extinct."

"Staring out the window, Litvinoff imagined the two thousand copies of The History of Love as a flock of two thousand homing pigeons that could flap their wings and return to him to report on how many tears shed, how many laughs, how many passages read aloud, how many cruel closings of the cover after reading barely a page, how many have never opened it at all."

"The first language humans had was gestures. There was nothing primitive about this language that flowed from people's hands, nothing we say now that could not be said in the endless array of movements possible with the fine bones of the fingers and wrists. The gestures were complex and subtle, involving a delicacy of motion that has since been lost completely."

"So many words get lost. They leave the mouth and lose their courage, wandering aimlessly until they are swept into the gutter like dead leaves. On rainy days you can hear their chorus rushing past:IwasbeautifulgirlPleasedon'tgoItoobelievemybod

"MEMORIES PASSED DOWN FROM MY MOTHER...Finding sand in the pockets of her clothes... Rain... My father ... Thousands of pages."

Personal note:The second of five books I picked up from Montreal,Canada; there were so many more to quote but they would give the story away.

Edvard Munch is best known as being a Norwegian born, expressionist painter, and printer. In the late 20th century, he played a great role in German expressionism, and the art form that later followed; namely because of the strong mental anguish that was displayed in many of the pieces that he created. 

Edvard Munch was born in Norway in 1863, and was raised in Christiania (known as Oslo today). He was related to famous painters and artists in their own right, Jacob Munch (painter), and Peter Munch (historian). Only a few years after he was born, Edvard Munch's mother diet of tuberculosis in 1868, and he was raised by his father. Edvard's father suffered of mental illness, and this played a role in the way he and his siblings were raised. Their father raised them impounding fears of hell, and other deep seated issues, which is part of the reason why the work of Edvard Munch took a deeper tone, and why the artist was known to have so many repressed emotions as he grew up. 

In 1885, Edvard Munch traveled to Paris, and was extremely influenced by the artists, and the pieces which he noted while visiting. This is noted in the impressionism, followed by the post-impressionism work which he created, at earlier phases of his career. In fact, the main style of Munch's work is post-impressionism, and focused on this style.

Much of the work which Edvard Munch created, was referred to as the style known as symbolism. This is mainly because of the fact that the pieces which he created, and the paintings he made, focused on the internal view of the objects, as opposed to the exterior, and what the eye could see. He would design many of his pieces around the way he felt, or the emotions he was repressing, which caused his work to showcase inward feeling, and more of a personal sense of art, as opposed to the external view, and the way everyone else would see the piece which he was portraying in any piece that he was designing. 

A majority of the work which Edvard Munch, does showcase emotion, more often than not, and more so than any true external view of the images which he was creating. Much of his work depicts life and death scenes, love and terror, and the feeling of loneliness was often a feeling which viewers would note that his work patterns focused on. These emotions were depicted by the contrasting lines, the darker colors, blocks of color, somber tones, and a concise and exaggerated form, which depicted the darker side of the art which he was designing. These tones and shadows were used, to depict the emotions the images were feeling, which seemed to come from the deep seated feelings which Edvard Munch tended to keep in, when he was painting, and creating any art form that he worked on. It was also noted that the style in which Munch painted, was a prelude to the German expressionism movement, and the dark pieces that would come out of this period as well. 

From about 1892, to 1908, Munch split most of his time in Paris and in Berlin; it was in 1909 which he decided to return to his hometown, and go back to Norway. During this period, much of the work that was created by Edvard Munch depicted his interest in nature, and it was also noted that the tones and colors that he used in these pieces, did add more color, and seemed a bit more cheerful, than most of the previous works he had created in years past. The pessimistic under toning which was quite prominent in much of his earlier works, had faded quite a bit, and it seems he took more of a colorful, playful, and fun tone with the pieces that he was creating, as opposed to the dark and somber style which he tended to work with earlier on during the course of his career. From this period, up to his death, Edvard Munch remained in Norway, and much of his work that was created from this period on, seemed to take on the similar, colorful approach which he had adopted, since returning home in 1909. 

Edvard Munch passed away in 1944, in a small town which was just outside of his home town in Oslo. Upon his death, the works which he had created, were not given to family, but they were instead donated to the Norwegian government, and were placed in museums, in shows, and in various local public buildings in Norway. In fact, after his death, more than 1000 paintings which Edvard Munch had created were donated to the government. In addition to the paintings that he had created during the course of his career, all other art forms he created were also donated to the government. A total of 15,400 prints were donated, 4500 drawings and water color art was donated, and six sculptures which Edvard Munch had created, were all turned over to the Oslo government, and were used as display pieces in many locations. 

Due to the fact that all of this work which Edvard Munch had created, was donated to the Norwegian government, the country decided to build the Munch Museum of Art. This was done to commemorate his work, his life, and the generosity which he showed, in passing his art work over to the government, so that it could be enjoyed by the general public, rather than be kept locked up by the family. Although the art which he did donate, was spread throughout a number of museums and art exhibits, a majority of them were kept in Oslo. And, most of the works which were donated by Munch, were placed in the Munch Museum of Art, to commemorate the work he did, as well as the unique style, and the distinct movements which he introduced to the world, through the creations which he had crafted.

There is much more important than life and that is love, for life, love is the reason. It gives us meaning to our existence, without love, life is less in everything. So let us not define what love is and know what it takes… it is better to love and be hurt and fail than never have love at all… just love and live… God has a purpose!

Nice one. To me, love is when you never know you are in love. Because if you do, you start hurting yourself.

51.Phen12 — May 11, 2012 at 1:28 am
Love requires a sacrifice to prove that it’s true. And sacrifice often leads to pain. So love a person when you are ready to be hurt ^^ But the greatest image of love is through the Cross, when JESUS died to save us. Godbless.

Love is ….
every feeling in the world
once you love someone, you start having different types of emotions
You would feel happy yet worried, loved or jealous, you get all mixed emotions and you start freaking out and that ruins the relantionship
so my advice… relax and think calmly before you d anything silly :)

57.Abigail Rowley — August 24, 2012 at 2:31 am

64.Roldens Paulynice — October 4, 2012 at 3:34 pm
“Sometimes we do some crazy stuff when we love someone, but that doesn’t mean that we are stupid. Love simply makes us blind, and we are unable to follow what we want. However, our hearts and our souls choose to follow what they want while our bodies are unable to resist or to control this feeling. Sometimes, even though the one that our hearts and our souls want hurts us, we still can’t stay away from that person because our hearts don’t give us the chance to do that, and our hearts and our souls say yes even though sometimes our mouths say no. The heart is what we need to survive. We are obligated to please it. The soul directs the body to where it wants it. There’s nothing we can do.”

65.Namrata — November 4, 2012 at 3:41 am
The most touching sentence: “but, I’m with you…”

I realised this is the First time I have ever been in love.”

71.Kaushik — December 28, 2012 at 2:47 pm
I am not so lucky in love. The girl I love got married to someone else but I still love her. Mind says what is the point? Heart is not ready to listen or move on.
