Graham Greene Quote: “I’m not involved, not involved,” I repeated. It has been an article of my creed.

Graham Greene Quote: “Her face looked ugly in the attempt to avoid tears; it was an ugliness which bound him to her more than any beauty could have done. It isn’t being happy together, he thought as though it were a fresh discovery, that makes one love – it’s being unhappy together.”
Graham Greene Quote: “It is one of the strange discoveries a man can make that life, however you lead it, contains moments of exhilaration; there are always comparisons which can be made with worse times: even in danger and misery the pendulum swings.”
Graham Greene Quote: “As long as one suffers one lives.”
Graham Greene Quote: “Christmas it seems to me is a necessary festival; we require a season when we can regret all the flaws in our human relationships: it is the feast of failure, sad but consoling.”

Graham Greene Quote: “To comfort me is like the wrong memory at the wrong place or time: if one is lonely one prefers discomfort.”
Graham Greene Quote: “Childhood was the germ of all mistrust. You were cruelly joked upon and then you cruelly joked. You lost the remembrance of pain through inflicting it.”
Graham Greene Quote: “Eternity is said not to be an extension of time but an absence of time, and sometimes it seemed to me that her abandonment touched that strange mathematical point of endlessness, a point with no width, occupying no space.”
