Graham Greene Quote: “D. felt a little envious of him as he stood there in the yard among the cars – he looked established. Five hundred years of inbreeding had produced him, set him against an exact background, made him at home, and at the same a time haunted – by the vices of ancestors and the tastes of the past.”

Graham Greene Quote: “It is astonishing the sense of innocence that goes with sin – only the hard and careful man and the saint are free of it.”
Graham Greene Quote: “His question reminded me of how easy he had been to deceive, so easy that he seemed to me almost a conniver at his wife’s unfaithfulness, as the man who leaves loose banknotes in a hotel bedroom connives at theft, and I hated him for the very quality which had once helped my love.”
Graham Greene Quote: “For a good man fame is always a problem.”
Graham Greene Quote: “Like the characters in Chekhov, they have no reserves -– you learn the most intimate secrets. You get an impression of a world peopled by eccentrics, of odd professions, almost incredible stupidities, and, to balance them, amazing endurances.”
Graham Greene Quote: “She always harboured my criticism: it was only praise that slid from her like the snow.”
Graham Greene Quote: “She wasn’t religious. She didn’t believe in heaven or hell, only in ghosts, Ouija boards, tables which rapped and little inept voices speaking plaintively of flowers.”
Graham Greene Quote: “I have never understood why people who can swallow the enormous improbability of a personal God boggle at a personal Devil.”
Graham Greene Quote: “The argument of danger only applies to those who live in relative safety.”
Graham Greene Quote: “Why did you give Querry Deo Gratias?’ ‘He’s cured, but he’s a burnt-out case, and I don’t want to send him away. He can sweep a floor and make a bed without fingers or toes.’ ‘Our visitors are sometimes fastidious.’ ‘I assure you Querry doesn’t mind. In fact he asked for him.”
Graham Greene Quote: “It was not merely that his brother was dead. His brain, too young to realize the full paradox, wondered with an obscure self- pity why it was that the pulse of his brother’s fear went on and on, when Francis was now where he had always been told there was no more terror and no more – darkness.”
Graham Greene Quote: “As long as there is a Church, there will be little Torquemadas.”

Graham Greene Quote: “Perhaps all life was like that – dull and then a heroic flurry at the end.”
Graham Greene Quote: “Don’t you believe it. I’ll tell you what life is. It’s gaol, it’s not knowing where to get some money. Worms and cataract, cancer. You hear ’em shrieking from the upper windows- children being born. It’s dying slowly.”
Graham Greene Quote: “A solitary laugh is often a laugh of superiority.”
Graham Greene Quote: “A frigid woman is never jealous, you simply haven’t caught up yet on ordinary human emotions.”
Graham Greene Quote: “The old women gossiped as they always had done, squatting on the floor outside the urinoir, carrying Fate in the lines of their faces as others on the palm.”
Graham Greene Quote: “So much in writing depends on the superficiality of one’s days.”

Graham Greene Quote: “There was no scene, no tears, just thought – the long private thought of somebody who has to alter a whole course of life.”
Graham Greene Quote: “She loved him whatever that meant but love was not an eternal thing like hatred and disgust.”
Graham Greene Quote: “I aim to be content with what I produce. It’s an aim I never achieve, but I go over my work word by word, time and again, so as to be as little dissatisfied as possible.”
Graham Greene Quote: “It is always of interest to know what strikes another human being as remarkable.”
Graham Greene Quote: “He sat heavily down on a tall tubular adjustable chair, which shortened suddenly under his weight and split him on the floor. Somebody always leaves a banana-skin on the scene of a tragedy.”
Graham Greene Quote: “I have never planned anything illegal in my life,′ Aunt Augusta said. ‘How could I plan anything of the kind when I have never read any of the laws and have no idea what they are?”
Graham Greene Quote: “What an unbearable creature he must have been in those days – and yet in those days he had been comparatively innocent. That was another mystery: it sometimes seemed to him that venial sins – impatience, an unimportant lie, pride, a neglected opportunity – cut you off from grace more completely than the worst sins of all. Then, in his innocence, he had felt no love for anyone; now in his corruption he had learnt.”
Graham Greene Quote: “He watched her go out of the dark office like fifteen wasted years.”
Graham Greene Quote: “Sentimentality – that’s what we call the sentiment we don’t share.”
Graham Greene Quote: “Not so bad this ending because one is getting used to endings: life like Morse, a series of dots and dashes, never forming a paragraph.”
Graham Greene Quote: “He disapproved, he didn’t believe in girls drinking, he was full of the conventions of a generation older than himself. Of course one drank oneself, one fornicated, but one didn’t lie with a friend’s sister, and ‘decent’ girls were never squiffy.”
Graham Greene Quote: “There is a time in life when a man with a little acting ability is able to deceive even himself.”

Graham Greene Quote: “He had stylized himself – life was easier that way. He had chosen a physical mould just as writer chooses a technical form.”
Graham Greene Quote: “Dear Mr Wormold, surely you realize there are people who expect to be tortured and others who would be outraged by the idea. One never tortures except by a kind of mutual agreement.”

Graham Greene Quote: “There are no coroners in Paraguay.”

Graham Greene Quote: “Fun... human nature... does no one any harm...

Graham Greene Quote: “I couldn’t help wondering, is my husband so unattractive that no woman has ever wanted him? Except me, of course. I must have wanted him, in a way, once, but I’ve forgotten why, and I was too young to know what I was choosing.”
