Edmund Gosse, C. We are like billiard balls in a game played by unskilful players, continually being nearly sent into a pocket, but hardly ever getting right into one, except by a fluke. We are like thistle-down blown about by the wind—up and down, here and there—but not one in a thousand ever getting beyond seed-hood.
A man is a passing mood coming and going in the mind of his country; he is the twitching of a nerve, a smile, a frown, a thought of shame or honour, as it may happen. When I was a boy at school at Shrewsbury, old Mrs. Brown used to keep a tray of spoiled tarts which she sold cheaper. They most of them looked pretty right till you handled them. We are all spoiled tarts. He is a poor creature who does not believe himself to be better than the whole world else. No matter how ill we may be, or how low we may have fallen, we would not change identity with any other person.
Hence our self-conceit sustains and always must sustain us till death takes us and our conceit together so that we need no more sustaining. Man must always be a consuming fire or be consumed. As for hell, we are in a burning fiery furnace all our lives—for what is life but a process of combustion? We have got into life by stealth and petitio principii , by the free use of that contradiction in terms which we declare to be the most outrageous violation of our reason.
We have wriggled into it by holding that everything is both one and many, both infinite in time and space and yet finite, both like and unlike to the same thing, both itself and not itself, both free and yet inexorably fettered, both every adjective in the dictionary and at the same time the flat contradiction of every one of them. Murray the publisher said that my Life of Dr.
Butler was an omnium gatherum. Yes, but life is an omnium gatherum.
Als die Welt zum Stillstand kam: Roman (German Edition)
Life is a superstition. But superstitions are not without their value. Life is eight parts cards and two parts play, the unseen world is made manifest to us in the play. Lizards generally seem to have lost their tails by the time they reach middle life.
And Baby Makes Four (Home to Firewood Island, book 2) by Mary J Forbes
So have most men. A sense of humour keen enough to show a man his own absurdities, as well as those of other people, will keep him from the commission of all sins, or nearly all, save those that are worth committing.
Life is like music, it must be composed by ear, feeling and instinct, not by rule. Nevertheless one had better know the rules, for they sometimes guide in doubtful cases—though not often. There are two great rules of life, the one general and the other particular.
Fler böcker av Mary J Forbes
The first is that every one can, in the end, get what he wants if he only tries. This is the general rule. The particular rule is that every individual is, more or less, an exception to the general rule. Nature is essentially mean, mediocre. You can have schemes for raising the level of this mean, but not for making every one two inches taller than his neighbour, and this is what people really care about.
All progress is based upon a universal innate desire on the part of every organism to live beyond its income.
