Iris Murdoch

But fantasy kills imagination, pornography is death to art.More Iris Murdoch quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Yes, of course, there's something fishy about describing people's feelings. You try hard to be accurate, but as soon as you start to define such and such a feeling, language lets you down.

And that being the case, I shall shut up. Oh, and... pass the gravy.More Iris Murdoch quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
