“La prima [canzone] tradotta in italiano con il titolo "Lo Straniero" rappresenta in fondo la condizione di tutti quelli che hanno la passione per le lingue. Siamo sempre stranieri, all'estero come nel nostro paese, figli di un altrove che non ci stanchiamo mai di cercare ma che esiste solo nelle nostre fantasie.”
Diego Marani, Come ho imparato le lingue

“Una lingua imparata non è che una maschera, un’identità presa a prestito. La si dovrebbe avvicinare con il dovuto distacco e mai cedere alla lusinga di mimetizzarsi, rinnegando i propri suoni per imitarne altri. Chi si abbandona a questa tentazione rischia di perdere la sua memoria, il suo passato, senza averne in cambio un altro.”
Diego Marani, Nuova grammatica finlandese

“Rivendicare la residenza a Bologna di qualcuno come criterio di affidabilità del suo parere faceva andare in bestia chiunque.”
Diego Marani, Vita di Nullo
