“I read Hesse's Steppenwolf thrice. The first time I was enchanted, the second time disappointed, the third time appalled.”
Marcel Reich-Ranicki, Mein Leben

“Und ehe ich mich's versah, da war's um mich geschehen. Ich war glücklich - wohl zum ersten Mal in meinem Leben. Ein extremes, ein unheimliches Gefühl hatte mich befallen und überwältigt. Ich war verliebt. Halb zog sie mich, halb sank ich hin - ich war verliebt in sie, die Literatur.”
Marcel Reich-Ranicki, Mein Leben

“[D]ie meisten Schriftsteller sind in einer Krise oder haben gerade eine Krise überwunden oder befürchten eine Krise. Daher genießen sie die Krise eines Kollegen beinahe wollüstig.”
Marcel Reich-Ranicki, Mein Leben
