“Make no mistake, the woman had a heart. She had a bigger one that people would think. There was a lot in it, stored up, high in miles of hidden shelving. Remember that she was the woman with the instrument strapped to her body in the long, moon-slit night.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Markus Zusak

“After another ten minutes, the gates of thievery would open just a crack, and Liesel Meminger would widen them a little further and squeeze through.

***TWO QUESTIONS***
Would the gates shut behind her?
Or would they have the goodwill to let her back out?

As Liesel would discover, a good thief requires many things.
Stealth. Nerve. Speed.
More important than any of those things, however, was one final requirement.
Luck.

Actually.
Forget the ten minutes.
The gates open now.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“Don’t make me happy. Please, don’t fill me up and let me think that something good can come of any of this. Look at my bruises. Look at this graze. Do you see the graze inside me? Do you see it growing before your very eyes, eroding me? I don’t want to hope for anything anymore.”

Markus Zusak
“Jesus, Mary …”
She said it out loud, the words distributed into a room that was full of cold air and books. Books everywhere! Each wall was armed with overcrowded yet immaculate shelving. It was barely possible to see the paintwork. There were all different styles and sizes of lettering on the spines of the black, the red, the gray, the every-colored books. It was one of the most beautiful things Liesel Meminger had ever seen.
With wonder, she smiled.
That such a room existed!
Even when she tried to wipe the smile away with her forearm, she realized instantly that it was a pointless exercise. She could feel the eyes of the woman traveling her body, and when she looked at her, they had rested on her face.
There was more silence than she ever thought possible. It extended like an elastic, dying to break. The girl broke it.
“Can I?”
The two words stood among acres and acres of vacant, wooden-floored land. The books were miles away.
The woman nodded.
Yes, you can”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Markus Zusak

Markus Zusak
“[...]otra arremetida de «Heil
Hitler!». ¿Sabes? Lo cierto es que me sorprendería que alguien no perdiera un
ojo o se hiciera daño en una mano o en una muñeca en medio de ese jaleo.
Bastaba con quedarse mirando hacia el lugar equivocado en el peor momento o
estar demasiado pegado a otra persona. Tal vez sí que hubo heridos. Por lo que
a mí respecta, lo único que puedo decir es que nadie murió por estar allí, al
menos físicamente. Es evidente que no podemos olvidar los cuarenta millones
de personas que recogí cuando todo hubo acabado, pero esto se está poniendo
metafórico.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Markus Zusak
“Može li netko ukrasti sreću? Ili je i to još jedan unutarnji, pakleni ljudski trik?”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Markus Zusak
“Si domandò quando esattamente i libri e le parole avessero incominciato a significare non solamente qualcosa, ma tutto.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

Markus Zusak
“(My full name's Ed Kennedy. I'm nineteen. I'm an underage cab driver. I'm typical of many of the young men you see in this suburban outpost of the city- not a whole lot of prospects or possibility. That aside, I read more books than I should, and I'm decidedly crap at sex and doing my taxes.Nice to meet you.)”
Markus Zusak, I Am the Messenger

Markus Zusak
“He must have longed for it so much. He must have loved her so incredibly hard. So hard that he would never ask for her lips again and would go to his grave without them.”
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
