John Galsworthy

English novelist, playwright and poet, Nobel Prize for Literature, 1932
There are houses whose souls have passed into the limbo of Time, leaving their bodies in the limbo of London. Such was not quite the condition of Timothy's on the Bayswater Road, for Timothy's soul still had one foot in Timothy Forsyte's body, and Smither kept the atmosphere unchanging, of camphor and port wine and house whose windows are only opened to air it twice a day.More John Galsworthy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
See what perils do environ those who meddle with hot iron.More John Galsworthy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Love me or hate me, but spare me your indifference.More John Galsworthy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Looking back on the long-stretched-out body of one's work, it is interesting to mark the endless duel fought within a man between the emotional and critical sides of his nature, first one, then the other, getting the upper hand, and too seldom fusing till the result has the mellowness of full achievement. One can even tell the nature of one's readers, by their preference for the work which reveals more of this side than of that.More John Galsworthy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think the greatest thing in the world is to believe in people.More John Galsworthy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
