Wyndham Lewis

was an English painter and author
We are the first men of a Future that has not materialized. We belong to a "great age" that has not "come off". We moved too quickly for the world. We set too sharp a pace.More Wyndham Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Then we are assured by Sartre that owing to the final disappearance of God our liberty is absolute! At this the entire audience waves its hat or claps its hands. But this natural enthusiasm is turned abruptly into something much less buoyant when it is learnt that this liberty weighs us down immediately with tremendous responsibilities. We now have to take all God's worries on our shoulders -now that we are become men like gods. It is at this point that the Anxiety and Despondency begin, ending in utter despair.More Wyndham Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The male has been persuaded to assume a certain onerous and disagreeable role with the promise of rewards -- material and psychological. Women may in the first place even have put it into his head. BE A MAN! may have been, metaphorically, what Eve uttered at the critical moment in the garden of Eden.More Wyndham Lewis quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Lenin in a top hat and frock coat would be a far greater anomaly than the Grand Lama of Thibet or a Zulu chief in that costume.More Wyndham Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Laughter is an independent, tremendously important, and lurid emotion.More Wyndham Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
