„I wish them all an atrocious life and then the fires and ice of hell and in the execrable generations to come an honoured name.“

—  Samuel Beckett, kniha Malone Dies

Malone Dies (1951)
Kontext: Let me say before I go any further that I forgive nobody. I wish them all an atrocious life and then the fires and ice of hell and in the execrable generations to come an honoured name.

„Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.“

—  Samuel Beckett, kniha Worstward Ho

Worstward Ho (1983)
Kontext: All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

„Nohow less. Nohow worse. Nohow naught. Nohow on.“

—  Samuel Beckett, kniha Worstward Ho

Worstward Ho (1983)
Kontext: Enough. Sudden enough. Sudden all far. No move and sudden all far. All least. Three pins. One pinhole. In dimmost dim. Vasts apart. At bounds of boundless void. Whence no farther. Best worse no farther. Nohow less. Nohow worse. Nohow naught. Nohow on.

„I do not feel like spending the rest of my life writing books that no one will read. It is not as though I wanted to write them.“

—  Samuel Beckett

The Letters of Samuel Beckett 1929–1940 (2009), p. 362
Kontext: I think the next little bit of excitement is flying. I hope I am not too old to take it up seriously, nor too stupid about machines to qualify as a commercial pilot. I do not feel like spending the rest of my life writing books that no one will read. It is not as though I wanted to write them.

„What makes me weep so? From time to time. There is nothing saddening here.“

—  Samuel Beckett, kniha The Unnamable

The Unnamable (1954)
Kontext: The tears stream down my cheeks from my unblinking eyes. What makes me weep so? From time to time. There is nothing saddening here. Perhaps it is liquefied brain.

„Saying is inventing. Wrong, very rightly wrong.“

—  Samuel Beckett, kniha Molloy

Molloy (1951)
Kontext: And truly it little matters what I say, this or that or any other thing. Saying is inventing. Wrong, very rightly wrong. You invent nothing, you think you are inventing, you think you are escaping, and all you do is stammer out your lesson, the remnants of a pensum one day got by heart and long forgotten, life without tears, as it is wept.

„I am such a good man, at bottom, such a good man, how is it that nobody ever noticed it?“

—  Samuel Beckett, kniha Malone Dies

Malone Dies (1951)
Kontext: Or I might be able to catch one, a little girl for example, and half strangle her, three quarters, until she promises to give me my stick, give me soup, empty my pots, kiss me, fondle me, smile to me, give me my hat, stay with me, follow the hearse weeping into her handkerchief, that would be nice. I am such a good man, at bottom, such a good man, how is it that nobody ever noticed it?
