Francois Mauriac

I write whenever it suits me. During a creative period I write every day; a novel should not be interrupted. When I cease to be carried along, when I no longer feel as though I were taking down dictation, I stop.More Francois Mauriac quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The man who partakes in the breaking of the bread dares to build his house on the very core of love. He becomes, as it were, Godlike, but regardless of the strength he derives from it, his free will remains. We are always free to disown this immense grace, to abuse it. The Greatest Love may be betrayed. Fed on the Living Bread, we nevertheless conceal a part of ourselves which longs for swine's food.More Francois Mauriac quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The grandeur of man lies in song, not in thought.More Francois Mauriac quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
