Quotes of Graham Greene

Английский писатель, в 1940-е годы — сотрудник британской разведки.

  • ⋅Despair is the price one pays for setting oneself an impossible aim /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Heresy is another word for freedom of thought. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those, who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, the melancholia, the panic fear, which is inherent in a human condition /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Sentimentality-- That's what we call the sentiment we don't share. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Despair is the price one pays for setting oneself an impossible aim. It is, one is told, the unforgivable sin, but it is a sin the corrupt or evil man never practices. He always has hope. He never reaches the freezing-point of knowing absolute failure. Only the man of goodwill carries always in his heart this capacity for damnation. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅People talk about the courage of condemned men walking to the place of execution: sometimes it needs as much courage to walk with any kind of bearing towards another person's habitual misery. /Graham Greene
  • Реклама:
  • ⋅Champagne, if you are seeking the truth, is better than a lie detector. It encourages a man to be expansive, even reckless, while lie detectors are only a challenge to tell lies successfully. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Sentimentality--that's what we call the sentiment we don't share. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅...every monologue sooner or later becomes a discussion. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅There was always another side to a joke, the side of the victim. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Champagne, if you are seeking the truth, is better than a lie detector. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Point me out the happy man and I will point you out either egotism, selfishness, evil - or else an absolute ignorance. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅The great advantage of being a writer is that you can spy on people. You're there, listening to every word, but part of you is observing. Everything is useful to a writer, you see - every scrap, even the longest and most boring of luncheon parties. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅The truth has never been of any real value to any human being - it is a symbol for mathematicians and philosophers to pursue. In human relations kindness and lies are worth a thousand truths. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅In Switzerland they had brotherly love, five hundred years of democracy and peace, and what did they produce? The cuckoo clock! /Graham Greene
  • ⋅It is impossible to go through life without trust: that is to be imprisoned in the worst cell of all, oneself. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Media is just a word that has come to mean bad journalism. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Morality comes with the sad wisdom of age, when the sense of curiosity has withered. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅When we are not sure, we are alive. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Human nature is not black and white but black and grey. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅My two fingers on a typewriter have never connected with my brain. My hand on a pen does. A fountain pen, of course. Ball-point pens are only good for filling out forms on a plane. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Against the beautiful and the clever and the successful, one can wage a pitiless war, but not against the unattractive: then the millstone weighs on the breast. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Innocence is like a dumb leper who has lost his bell, wandering the world, meaning no harm. /Graham Greene

  • ⋅Sentimentality - that's what we call the sentiment we don't share. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Success is more dangerous than failure, the ripples break over a wider coastline. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅A petty reason perhaps why novelists more and more try to keep a distance from journalists is that novelists are trying to write the truth and journalists are trying to write fiction. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅A movie is not a book. If the source material is a book, you cannot be too respectful of the book. All you owe to the book is the spirit. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Innocence always calls mutely for protection when we would be so much wiser to guard ourselves against it: innocence is like a dumb leper who has lost his bell, wandering the world, meaning no harm. /Graham Greene
  • ⋅Reality in our century is not something to be faced. /Graham Greene

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