“Ona je živjela u stalnom strahu da će nešto važno i lijepo u životu propustiti. Često je putovala a još češće patila jer ne putuje. Smatrala je da su pravi povod i sreća uvijek negdje drugdje stalno je bila puna planova kako da ih uhvati za rep kako da u stalnom gibanju pronađe onaj kristalni trenutak kada se barem tako kažu snovi život pretvara u bajku.”
Miljenko Jergović, Sarajevo Marlboro

“Pita mene Amerikanac šta ti je to dunjaluk, ja ga pogledam, stvarno mu ne znam naći neku englesku riječ, nasmijem se i kažem mu - to ti je, moj novinaru, nešto kao all over the world. Nekome je all over the world od Baščaršije do Marijindvora, a nekome je oko zemaljske kugle.”

“S onima koji ne umru slučajno stvari stoje ovako: prerezanih žila umiru žene i homoseksualci, metak u glavu ispale vojnici i grubijani, tabletama se dokrajče glumci i romantičari, u srce pucaju nespretnjakovići i neurotici, vješaju se neobaviješteni i perverznjaci, s mostova skaču slavohlepni i slabići, s krovova i visokih katova skaču očajnici i teoretičari.”
Miljenko Jergović, Sarajevo Marlboro
