Frases Mikhail Lermontov


„¿Qué es la felicidad? Orgullo satisfecho.“

„Love, like fire, goes out without fuel.“ A Hero of Our Time


„He in his madness prays for storms, and dreams that storms will bring him peace“

„In the first place, [his eyes] never laughed when he laughed. Have you ever noticed this peculiarity some people have? It is either the sign of an evil nature or of a profound and lasting sorrow.“ Un Héros de notre temps. (précédé de) La Princesse Ligovskoï

„An unusual beginning must have an unusual end.“ Un Héros de notre temps. (précédé de) La Princesse Ligovskoï

„I was ready to love the whole world, but no one understood me, and I learned to hate.“ A Hero of Our Time

„We practically always excuse things when we understand them“ A Hero of Our Time

„Yes, such has been my lot since childhood. Everyone read signs of non-existent evil traits in my features. But since they were expected to be there, they did make their appearance. Because I was reserved, they said I was sly, so I grew reticent. I was keenly aware of good and evil, but instead of being indulged I was insulted and so I became spiteful. I was sulky while other children were merry and talkative, but though I felt superior to them I was considered inferior. So I grew envious. I was ready to love the whole world, but no one understood me, and I learned to hate. My cheerless youth passed in conflict with myself and society, and fearing ridicule I buried my finest feelings deep in my heart, and there they died. I spoke the truth, but nobody believed me, so I began to practice duplicity. Having come to know society and its mainsprings, I became versed in the art of living and saw how others were happy without that proficiency, enjoying for free the favors I had so painfully striven for. It was then that despair was born in my heart--not the despair that is cured with a pistol, but a cold, impotent desperation, concealed under a polite exterior and a good-natured smile. I became a moral cripple; I had lost one half of my soul, for it had shriveled, dried up and died, and I had cut it off and cast it away, while the other half stirred and lived, adapted to serve every comer. No one noticed this, because no one suspected there had been another half. Now, however, you have awakened memories of it in me, and what I have just done is to read its epitaph to you. Many regard all epitaphs as ridiculous, but I do not, particularly when I remember what rests beneath them.“ A Hero of Our Time


„What of it? If I die, I die. It will be no great loss to the world, and I am thoroughly bored with life. I am like a man yawning at a ball; the only reason he does not go home to bed is that his carriage has not arrived yet.“ A Hero of Our Time

„Out of life's storm I carried only a few ideas - and not one feeling.“ A Hero of Our Time

„Afraid of decision, I buried my finer feelings in the depths of my heart and they died there.“ A Hero of Our Time

„I was modest--they accused me of being crafty: I became secretive. I felt deeply good and evil--nobody caressed me, everybody offended me: I became rancorous. I was gloomy--other children were merry and talkative. I felt myself superior to them--but was considered inferior: I became envious. I was ready to love the whole world--none understood me: and I learned to hate.“ A Hero of Our Time


„my love had grown one with my soul; it became darker, but did not go out“ A Hero Of Our Time

„Tell me,” she finally whispered, “is it fun for you to torture me?... I should really hate you. Ever since we have known each other, you have given me nothing but suffering...” Her voice trembled, she leaned toward me, and lowered her head onto my breast.
“Perhaps,” I thought, “this is exactly why you loved me: joys are forgotten, but sadness, never...“
A Hero of Our Time

„I was lying, but I wanted to rouse him. I have an inborn urge to contradict; my whole life has been a mere chain of sad and futile opposition to the dictates of either heart or reason. The presence of an enthusiast makes me as cold as a midwinter's day, and, I believe, frequent association with a listless phlegmatic would make me an impassioned dreamer.“ A Hero of Our Time

„I love enemies, though not in the Christian way. They amuse me, excite my blood. Being always on one’s guard, catching every glance, the significance of every word, guessing at intentions, frustrating their plots, pretending to be tricked, and suddenly, with a shove, upturning the whole enormous and arduously built edifice of their cunning and schemes—that’s what I call life.“ A Hero of Our Time
