William Howells

American writer and critic

It's a curious thing, this thing we call civilization...we think it is an affair of epochs, and nations. It's really an affair of individuals. One brother will be civilized and the other a barbarian...All civilization comes through literature now, especially in our country. A Greek got his civilization by talking and looking, and in some measure a Parisian may still do it. But we, who live remote from history and monuments, we must read or we must barbarise.More William Howells quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If we like a man's dream, we call him a reformer; if we don't like his dream, we call him a crank.More William Howells quotes [08/31/2011 08:08:54]
The conqueror is regarded with awe; the wise man commands our respect; but it is only the benevole t man that wins our affection.More William Howells quotes [08/31/2011 08:08:07]
He who sleeps in continual noise is wakened by silence.More William Howells quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
