    Ivo Andrić
    “Dugotrajno robovanje i rdjava uprava mogu toliko zbuniti i unakaziti shvatanje jednog naroda da zdrav razum i prav sud njemu otančaju i oslabe, da se potpuno izvitopere. Takav poremećen narod ne može više da razlikuje ne samo dobro od zla, nego i svoju sopstvenu korist od očigledne štete.”
    Ivo Andrić

    Ivo Andrić
    “Mnogo samuješ i dugo ćutiš, sine moj, zatravljen si snovima, izmoren putevima duha. Lik ti je pognut i lice blijedo, duboko spuštene vjeđe i glas kao škripa tamničkih vrata. Iziđi u ljetni dan, sine moj!
    - Šta si vidio u ljetni dan, sine moj?
    Vidio sam da je zemlja jaka i nebo vječno, a čovjek slab i kratkovjek.
    - Šta si vidio, sine moj, u ljetni dan?
    Vidio sam da je ljubav kratka, a glad vječna.
    - Šta si vidio, sine moj, u ljetni dan?
    Vidio sam da je ovaj život stvar mučna, koja se sastoji od nepravilne izmjene grijeha i nesreće, da živjeti znači slagati varku na varku.
    - Hoćeš da usneš, sine moj?
    Ne, oče, idem da ž i v i m.”
    Ivo Andrić, Ex Ponto, Nemiri, Lirika

    Ivo Andrić
    “Čim možemo nekom čoveku da kažemo jasno i otvoreno da nas je uvredio i da navedemo posve određeno čime je to i kada učinio, to znači da smo mu uvredu oprostili ili smo spremni da to učinimo. Muka je dok uvredu nosimo ćutke u sebi.”
    Ivo Andrić

    Meša Selimović
    “»Рекох чудну ријеч: побуна. И зауставих перо
    над равним ретком у ком је остала утиснута једна
    недоумица, прелако изречена…
    …Одакле је дошла опасна ријеч?…
    …Је ли то само ријеч, или је мисао? Ако је мисао,
    онда је моја мисао, или моја заблуда.
    Ако је заблуда, тешко мени; ако је истина, тешко мени још више.«”
    Meša Selimović, Derviš i smrt
