  • ⋅A great biography should, like the close of a great drama, leave behind it a feeling of serenity. We collect into a small bunch the flowers, the few flowers, which brought sweetness into a life, and present it as an offering to an accomplished destiny. It is the dying refrain of a completed song, the final verse of a finished poem. /Andre Maurois
  • ⋅Conversation would be vastly improved by the constant use of four simple words: I do not know. /Andre Maurois
  • ⋅A mixture of admiration and pity is one of the surest recipes for affection. /Andre Maurois
  • ⋅Old age is far more than white hair, wrinkles, the feeling that it is too late and the game finished, that the stage belongs to the rising generations. The true evil is not the weakening of the body, but the indifference of the soul. /Andre Maurois
  • ⋅The need to express oneself in writing springs from a mal-adjustment to life, or from an inner conflict which the adolescent (or the grown man) cannot resolve in action. Those to whom action comes as easily as breathing rarely feel the need to break loose from the real, to rise above, and describe it... I do not mean that it is enough to be maladjusted to become a great writer, but writing is, for some, a method of resolving a conflict, provided they have the necessary talent. /Andre Maurois
  • ⋅To be witty is not enough. One must possess sufficient wit to avoid having too much of it. /Andre Maurois

Women think that all men are equal, and this is their strength, men think all women are different - it destroys them.
