„To zabawne, ale dumą większości mężczyzn są dwie rzeczy, które każdy mężczyzna potrafi i robi to dokładnie tak samo, upijanie się i spłodzenie syna.“

— Gertrude Stein
Źródło: Księga toastów i humoru biesiadnego, wybór i oprac. Leszek Bubel, wyd. „Zamek”, Warszawa 1995, s. 150.

„One has to remember that about imagination, that is when the world gets dull when everybody does not know what they can or what they cannot really imagine.“

— Gertrude Stein
Context: Would I if I could by pushing a button would I kill five thousand Chinamen if I could save my brother from anything. Well I was very fond of my brother and I could completely imagine his suffering and I replied that five thousand Chinamen were something I could not imagine and so it was not interesting. One has to remember that about imagination, that is when the world gets dull when everybody does not know what they can or what they cannot really imagine. Ch. 3

„A great deal of beauty is rapture. A circle is a necessity. Otherwise you would see no one. We each have our circle.“

— Gertrude Stein
Context: A beauty is not suddenly in a circle. It comes with rapture. A great deal of beauty is rapture. A circle is a necessity. Otherwise you would see no one. We each have our circle. "A Circular Play," from Last Operas and Plays (1949) [written in 1920]

„All of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation...“

— Gertrude Stein
Context: All of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation... You have no respect for anything. You drink yourselves to death. Statement quoted by Ernest Hemingway in A Moveable Feast (1964) Ch. 3, it had also provided the epigraph to The Sun Also Rises (1926).

„Explanations are clear but since no one to whom a thing is explained can connect the explanations with what is really clear, therefore clear explanations are not clear.“

— Gertrude Stein
Context: Explanations are clear but since no one to whom a thing is explained can connect the explanations with what is really clear, therefore clear explanations are not clear. Now this is a simple thing that anybody who has ever argued or quarreled knows perfectly well is a simple thing, only when they read it they do not understand it because they do not see that understanding and believing are not the same thing. Ch. 4
