“Everything that is, to us, almost obscenely close, sometimes through our observation, although undeservedly, constantly provokes and nourishes a sneer.”
Stanka Gjurić, Unveiling reality

“Prinudnost je u stanju iz čovjeka izvući ono najbolje, jer sve što teži lakoći postojanja, ponekad teži i lakoći odlučivanja koje nam biva nametnuto razvitkom životnih događanja koja pak, prinuđujući nas na nešto, odlučuju umjesto nas." ~ iz knjige lirskih eseja ''Lekcija o drskosti'' (2000.)”
Stanka Gjurić, Lekcija o drskosti

“Možda sreća kameleonski mijenja svoj značaj kroz zahtjeve i stremljenja određenog naraštaja, no bez obtira na cilj i sredstvo kojim se ostvaruje, dok god je on nije u stanju pronaći u sitnicama i tek naoko nebitnom, uvijek će zadovoljstvo kojim ona rađa biti podosta neuhvatljivo i rijetko, moguće čak toliko da je više uopće neće moći prepoznati." ~ iz knjige lirskih eseja ''Lekcija o drskosti'' (2000.)”
Stanka Gjurić, Lekcija o drskosti

“Dying is really inconceivable in the way it comes about, even though it is easily predictable by the very nature of our existence. However, it is as though man does not believe in death. Even though he witnesses it, he conceives and recognizes it only at a safe distance to be able to ignore its threat of finality at his own peril and the peril of those he loves. It appears as though the “world of dying” around us is not sufficiently close to become emotionally acceptable (that’s why perhaps we live as though we will exist forever), and even the disappearance of our loved ones does not serve as a lesson of any sort.”

“Everything that is, to us, almost obscenely close, sometimes through our observation, although undeservedly, constantly provokes and nourishes a sneer.”
Stanka Gjurić, Unveiling reality

“Our current ability to break through particular boundaries, whether on a physical or emotional level, cannot be measured with what we were able to undertake and achieve as children.”
Stanka Gjurić, Unveiling reality

“No moving picture like no photograph can portray us in the way the human eye does, and that’s not only because on film or in a photo we are portrayed flatly, but because the eye is able to record what no technological medium is able to replicate.”
Stanka Gjurić

“People will always find a way to tell you themselves what they want you to know; we need not be those who will, ransacking their intimacy, learn the facts which they might not be ready to share. It is already sufficiently painful for them that the cross they carry is visible and that – although they would probably want to – they cannot hide it.”
Stanka Gjurić, The Diary of an Aquarian
