Graham Greene

Graham Greene

English writer, in the 1940s - a British intelligence officer.
What an unbearable creature he must have been in those days--and yet in those days he had been comparatively innocent. That was another mystery: it sometimes seemed to him that venial sins--impatience, an unimportant lie, pride, a neglected opportunity--cut you off from grace more completely than the worst sins of all. Then, in his innocence, he had felt no love for anyone; now in his corruption he had learnt.More Graham Greene quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's a pity people pick and choose what they learn from the Bible.More Graham Greene quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
People change,' she said 'Oh, no they don't. Look at me. I've never changed. It's like those sticks of rock: bite it all the way down, you'll still read Brighton. That's human nature.More Graham Greene quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's strange how the human mind swings back and forth, from one extreme to another. Does truth lie at some point of the pendulum's swing, at a point where it never rests, not in the dull perpendicular mean where it dangles in the end like a windless flag, but at an angle, nearer one extreme than another? If only a miracle could stop the pendulum at an angle of sixty degrees, one would believe the truth was there.More Graham Greene quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One's life is more formed, I sometimes think, by books than by human beings: it is out of books one learns about love and pain at second hand.More Graham Greene quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
