Van Wyck Brooks

American literary critic, biographer, and historian.
Magnanimous people have no vanity, they have no jealousy, and they feed on the true and the solid wherever they find it. And, what is more, they find it everywhere.More Van Wyck Brooks quotes [10/20/2011 11:10:30]
If men were basically evil, who would bother to improve the world instead of giving it up as a bad job at the outset?More Van Wyck Brooks quotes [10/20/2011 11:10:18]
No one in this country has any root anywhere; we don't live in America, we board here, we are like spiders that run over the surface of the water.More Van Wyck Brooks quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
How delightful is the company of generous people, who overlook trifles and keep their minds instinctively fixed on whatever is good and positive in the world about them. People of small caliber are always carping. They are bent on showing their own superiority, their knowledge or prowess or good breeding. But magnanimous people have no vanity, they have no jealousy, and they feed on the true and the solid wherever they find it. And what is more, they find it everywhere.More Van Wyck Brooks quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
