Snippets of Serbian literature 1

June 10, 2017

“Oblivion heals everything and song is the most beautiful way to forget, for in song man feels only what he loves.” 

 

“For a man filled with a great, true and unselfish love, even if it be unrequited , there lie horizons , prospects and pathways wide open, which are closed and unknown to those many clever, ambitious, yet the selfish ones .” 

 

“They set foot  there into the subliminal philosophy of the town; that life was an unintelligible miracle, since it was  wasted and spent ceaselessly, yet none the less it lasted and endured 'like the bridge on the Drina'.” 

 

 

“Every human generation has its own illusions with regard to civilization; some believe they are taking part in its upsurge, others that they witness its extinction. In fact, it always both enflames and smoulders and is extinguished, in line with the place and the perspective.” 


“They looked at the paper and saw nothing in those curving lines, but they knew and grasped it all, for their geography was in their blood and they biologically felt  their image of the world.” 

quotes from from the book ’The Bridge on the Drina’ by  Ivo Andrić (1892 – 1975), a Serbian Nobel Prize winner
