This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity. A perpetually new and lively world, but a dangerous one, full of tragedy and injustice. A world in everlasting conflict between the new idea and the old allegiances, new arts and new inventions against the old establishment.More Joyce Cary [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
God is a character, a real and consistent being, or He is nothing. If God did a miracle He would deny His own nature and the universe would simply blow up, vanish, become nothing.More Joyce Cary [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Religion is organized to satisfy and guide the soul -- politics does the same thing for the body.More Joyce Cary [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Remember I'm an artist. And you know what that means in a court of law. Next worst to an actress.More Joyce Cary [09/27/2011 11:09:53]
The will is never free - it is always attached to an object, a purpose. It is simply the engine in the car - it can't steer.More Joyce Cary [09/27/2011 11:09:57]

My father had never lost his temper with us, never beaten us, but we had for him that feeling often described as fear, which is something quite different and far deeper than alarm. It was that sense which, without irreverence, I have thought to find expressed by the great evangelists when they speak of the fear of God. One does not fear God because He is terrible, but because He is literally the soul of goodness and truth, because to do Him wrong is to do wrong to some mysterious part of oneself, and one does not know More Joyce Cary [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

It is sometimes said that toleration should be refused to the intolerant. In practice this would destroy it... The only remedy for dogmatism and lies is toleration and the greatest possible liberty of expression.More Joyce Cary [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
