Laurence Sterne
“I define a nose, as follows,—intreating only beforehand, and beseeching my readers, both male and female, of what age, complexion, and condition soever, for the love of God and their own souls, to guard against the temptations and suggestions of the devil, and suffer him by no art or wile to put any other ideas into their minds, than what I put into my definition.—For by the word Nose, throughout all this long chapter of noses, and in every other part of my work, where the word Nose occurs,—I declare, by that word I mean a Nose, and nothing more, or less.”
Laurence Sterne, The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman

Philip K. Dick
“You would not have known,' Baynes said, 'because I do not in any physical way appear Jewish; I have had my nose altered, my large greasy pores made smaller, my skin chemically lightened, the shape of my skull changed. In short, physically I cannot be detected. ...”
Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle

Maria Fernanda Heredia
“Es más fácil ocultar una espinilla en la punta de la nariz, que el amor.”
Maria Fernanda Heredia, Hay Palabras que los Peces no Entienden

Philip K. Dick
“I'm sorry, she thought. But she said nothing. I can't save you or anybody else from being dark. She thought of Frank. I wonder if he's dead yet. Said the wrong things; spoke out of line. No, she thought. Somehow he likes Japs. Maybe he identifies with them because they're ugly. She had always told Frank that he was ugly. Large pores. Big nose. Her own skin was finely knit, unusually so. Did he fall dead without me? A fink is a finch, a form of bird. And they say birds die.”
Philip K. Dick, The Man in the High Castle

Gaston Leroux
“I say, `Woe to them that have a nose, a real nose,
and come to look round the torture-chamber! Aha, aha, aha!”
Gaston Leroux, Phantom of the Opera

Kurt Vonnegut
“My nose, thank god, had conked out by then. Noses are merciful that way. They will report that something smells awful. If the owner of a nose stays around anyway, the nose concludes that the smell isn't so bad after all. It shuts itself off, deferring to superior wisdom.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Jailbird

Milan Kundera
“It's a great consolation to think that when we've long been in the grave our noses will still be strolling the earth.”
Milan Kundera

Will Advise
“Eating pizza is like having a little heaven in your nose. Wait, that's not what you eat pizza with. I always get it confused with pizza-pie.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Nana Awere Damoah

Nikolai Gogol
“I must confess that I do not understand why things are so arranged, that women seize us by the nose as deftly as they do the handle of a teapot: either their hands are so constructed, or else our noses are good for nothing else.”
Nikolai Gogol, The Overcoat and Other Works by Nicolai Gogol

Ilse Losa
“Já que não és bonita, deves salientar-te pela inteligência. Assim há se de conseguir mais na vida do que essas criaturinhas que contam com o sucesso do seu palminho de cara. Quero que aprendas também a tocar piano.
Assim falou à minha mãe, que se contava entre as mulheres bonitas. Suspeitaria do mal que me causava?
Pouco a pouco fui-me convencendo de ser feia. Olhando para o espelho via uma cara redonda, sem dúvida redonda em excesso, via olhos cinzentos (e não era o cinzento a cor mais feia de todas?), cabelo liso, sem ondas nem caracóis. No nariz curto já Anna repararam e gostava de puxar por ele. E como se me meteu na cabeça que os olhos eram demasiado pequenos, comecei a arregalá-los quando caminhava pelas ruas.”
Ilse Losa, O Mundo Em Que Vivi

Anthony Powell
“Short, square, cleanshaven, his head seemed carved out of an elephant's tusk, the whole massive cone of ivory left more or less complete in its original shape, eyes hollowed out deep in the roots, the rest of the protuberance accommodating his other features, terminating in a perfectly colossal nose that stretched directly forward from the totally bald cranium. The nose was preposterous, grotesque, slapstick, a mask from a Goldoni comedy.”
Anthony Powell, A Dance to the Music of Time: 3rd Movement
