The Diary of Adam and Eve Quotes (showing 1-15 of 15)
“After all these years, I see that I was mistaken about Eve in the beginning; it is better to live outside the Garden with her than inside it without her.”
Mark Twain, Diaries of Adam & Eve
“Wheresoever she was, there was Eden.”
Mark Twain, The Diary of Adam and Eve
“I wish I could make him understand that a loving good heart is riches enough, and that without it intellect is poverty.”
Mark Twain, The Diary of Adam and Eve
“It is better to be alone than unwelcome. - Eve”
Mark Twain, The Diary of Adam and Eve
“How little a thing can make us happy when we feel that we have earned it.”
Mark Twain, The Diaries of Adam and Eve
“Stars are good, too. I wish I could get some to put in my hair. But I suppose I never can. You would be surprised to find how far off they are, for they do not look it. When they first showed, last night, I tried to knock some down with a pole, but it didn't reach, which astonished me; then I tried clods till I was all tired out, but I never got one. It was because I am left-handed and cannot throw good. Even when I aimed at the one I wasn't after I couldn't hit the other one, though I did make some close shots, for I saw the black blot of the clod sail right into the midst of the golden clusters forty or fifty times, just barely missing them, and if I could have held out a little longer maybe I could have got one.”
Mark Twain, The Diary of Adam and Eve
“It is my prayer, it is my longing, that we may pass from this life together—a longing which shall never perish from the earth, but shall have place in the heart of every wife that loves, until the end of time; and it shall be called by my name. But if one of us must go first, it is my prayer that it shall be I; for he is strong, I am weak, I am not so necessary to him as he is to me—life without him would not be life; how could I endure it? This prayer is also immortal, and will not cease from being offered up while my race continues. I am the first wife; and in the last wife I shall be repeated.”
Mark Twain, The Diaries of Adam and Eve
“Perhaps I ought to remember that she is very young, a mere girl and make allowances. She is all interest, eagerness, vivacity, the world is to her a charm, a wonder, a mystery, a joy; she can’t speak for delight when she finds a new flower, she must pet it and caress it and smell it and talk to it, and pour out endearing names upon it. And she is color-mad: brown rocks, yellow sand, gray moss, green foliage, blue sky; the pearl of the dawn, the purple shadows on the mountains, the golden islands floating in crimson seas at sunset, the pallid moon sailing through the shredded cloud-rack, the star-jewels glittering in the wastes of space — none of them is of any practical value, so far as I can see, but because they have color and majesty, that is enough for her, and she loses her mind over them. If she could quiet down and keep still a couple of minutes at a time, it would be a reposeful spectacle. In that cases I think I could enjoy looking at her; indeed I am sure I could, for I am coming to realize that she is a quite remarkably comely creature — lithe, slender, trim, rounded, shapely, nimble, graceful; and once when she was standing marble-white and sun-drenched on a boulder, with her young head tilted back and her hand shading her eyes, watching the flight of a bird in the sky, I recognized that she was beautiful.”
Mark Twain, The Diary of Adam and Eve
“It is my prayer, it is my longing, that we may pass from this life together—a longing which shall never perish from the earth, but shall have place in the heart of every wife that loves, until the end of time; and it shall be called by my name.”
Mark Twain, The Diaries of Adam and Eve
“Después de todos estos años, veo que estaba equivocado con Eva al principio; es mejor vivir fuera del Jardín con ella que dentro de él sin ella.”
Mark Twain, El diario de Adán y Eva
“Tự sâu thẳm, chàng là người tốt, và ta yêu chàng vì thế. Nhưng nếu chàng không tốt thì ta vẫn yêu chàng. Dù chàng có khiến ta đau đớn, có lợi dụng ta, ta vẫn cứ yêu chàng. Ta biết điều đó. Đó là vấn đề giới tính, ta nghĩ vậy.

Chàng khỏe mạnh và đẹp đẽ. Ta yêu chàng vì điều đó. Ta ngưỡng mộ, ta tự hào về chàng. Nhưng ta vẫn yêu chàng dù chàng không có những phẩm chất này. Nếu chàng xấu xí, ta vẫn yêu chàng. Nếu chàng tàn phế, ta vẫn yêu chàng. Ta sẽ làm việc cho chàng, sẽ cầu nguyện cho chàng, sẽ luôn ở bên chàng cho đến ngày ta chết.

Phải, ta nghĩ ta yêu chàng chỉ vì chàng là CỦA TA và chàng là GIỐNG ĐỰC. Ta tin rằng không có lý do nào khác. Và đó là điều ta nghĩ khi nói rằng: dạng tình yêu này không phải là thứ được tạo ra từ lý trí hay những con số khô khan. Nó chỉ đơn giản là ĐẾN. Không ai biết tự khi nào, và không ai giải thích được vì sao. Mà thực ra có cần chăng phải giải thích?”
Mark Twain, The Diary of Adam and Eve
“Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and today -- all without seeing him. It is a long time to be alone; still, it is better to be alone that unwelcome. I had to have company -- I was made for it, I think -- so I made friends with the animals.”
Mark Twain, The Diary of Adam and Eve
“آدم: «أينما و ِجَدت ُ حواءُ ... وجَدت الجنَّةُ.»”
فرج جبران, The Diary of Adam and Eve
“También estaba descontento por otra cosa: yo traté una vez más de convencerlo de que dejase de ir a las Cataratas. Eso fue porque el fuego me había revelado una pasión nueva, totalmente nueva, y claramente distinta del amor, de la pena y de esas otras que ya había descubierto: el miedo. ¡Es horrible! Ojalá nunca la hubiese descubierto. Me da malos momentos, arruina mi felicidad, me hace estremecer y temblar y sobresaltarme. Pero no pude persuadirlo, porque él no ha descubierto el miedo aún, y por eso no puede comprenderme.”
Mark Twain, The Diary of Adam and Eve
