H. G. Wells Quote: “Educate the Russian or the American or the Englishman or the Irishman or Frenchman or any real northern European except German, and you get the Anarchist, that is to say the man who dreams of order without organisation – of something beyond organisation...”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Could it be possible, I thought, that such a thing as the vivisection of men was carried on here? The question shot like lightning across a tumultuous sky; and suddenly the clouded horror of my mind condensed into a vivid realisation of my own danger.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “The thing they wanted they called the Vote, but that demand so hollow, so eyeless, had all the terrifying effect of a mask. Behind that mask was a formless invincible discontent with the lot of womanhood. It wanted, – it was not clear what it wanted, but whatever it wanted, all the domestic instincts of mankind were against admitting there was anything it could want.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Most of the social and political ills from which you suffer are under your control, given only the will and courage to change them. You can live in another and a wiser fashion if you choose to think it out and work it out. You are not awake to your own power.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “As if there wasn’t a thousand things that were never heard.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Language is the nourishment of the thought of man, that serves only as it undergoes metabolism, and becomes thought and lives, and in its very living passes away. You scientific people, with your fancy of a terrible exactitude in language, of indestructible foundations built, as that Wordsworthian doggerel on the title-page of Nature says, “for aye,” are marvellously without imagination!”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Have you been time travelling?”
H. G. Wells Quote: “It isn’t a natural thing to keep on worrying about the morality of one’s material prosperity. These are proclivities superinduced by modern conditions of the conscience. There is a natural resistance in every healthy human being to such distressful heart-searchings.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Looks to me like the sort of fellow one doesn’t play cards with.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “It continued to swear with that breadth and variety that distinguishes the swearing of a cultivated man.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “A boy is a creature of odd feelings.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “The situation was primordial. The Man beneath prevailed for a moment over the civilised superstructure, the Draper. He pushed at the pedals with archaic violence. So Palaeolithic man may have ridden his simple bicycle of chipped flint in pursuit of his exogamous affinity.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “The truly brave man is not the man who does not feel fear but the man who overcomes it.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “As mankind ‘matures,’ as it becomes more possible to be frank in the scrutiny of the self and others and in the publication of one’s findings, biography and autobiography will take the place of fiction for the investigation and discussion of character.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “We’ve got to escape from narrowness. We’re a movement, not a conspiracy. We’ve got to radiate contacts, and have as many people aware of us as possible. That’s living, modern common sense.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Man is now a new animal, a new and different animal; he can jump a hundred miles, see through brick walls, bombard atoms, analyse the stars, set about his business with the strength of a million horses. And so forth and so on. Yes. Yes. But all the same he goes on behaving like the weak little needy ape he used to be. He grabs, snarls, quarrels, fears, stampedes, and plays in his immense powder magazine until he seems likely to blow up the whole damned show.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “The sojers’ll stop ’em,” said a woman beside me, doubtfully. A haziness rose over the treetops.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Have a good look at the thing. Look at the table too, and satisfy yourselves there is no trickery. I don’t want to waste this model, and then be told I’m a quack.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “But wait a moment. Can an instantaneous cube exist?”
H. G. Wells Quote: “When, 200 years ago, the political center of the United States was transferred from Washington to Centropolis, the newspaper followed the government and assumed the name of Earth Chronicle.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Within he felt that faint stirring of derision for the whole business of life which is the salt of the American mentality. Outwardly they are sentimental and enthusiastic and inwardly they are profoundly cynical.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “There it must be, I think, in the vast and eternal laws of matter, and not in the daily cares and sins and troubles of men, that whatever is more than animal within us must find its solace and its hope. I hope, or I could not live.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “I had not, I said to myself, come into the future to carry on a miniature flirtation.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “For the man who stood there shouting some incoherent explanation, was a solid gesticulating figure up to the coat-collar of him, and then – nothingness, no visible thing at all!”
H. G. Wells Quote: “To the prophetic mind all history is and will continue to be a prelude. The prophetic type will steadfastly refuse to see the world as a museum; it will insist that here is a stage set for a drama that perpetually begins.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “He liked to address every man in his own language, as a good European should.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “And even it seemed that I too was not a reasonable creature, but only an animal tormented with some strange disorder in its brain which sent it to wander alone, like a sheep stricken with gid.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Love is not only the cardinal fact in the individual life, but the most important concern of the community; after all, the way in which the young people of this generation pair off determines the fate of the nation; all the other affairs of the state are subsidiary to that. And we leave it to flushed and blundering youth to stumble on its own significance, with nothing to guide it but shocked looks and sentimental twaddle and base whisperings and cant-smeared examples.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “In all the round world of Utopia there is no meat. There used to be. But now we cannot stand the thought of slaughter-houses. And, in a population that is all educated, and at about the same level of physical refinement, it is practically impossible to find anyone who will hew a dead ox or pig. We never settled the hygienic question of meat-eating at all. This other aspect decided us. I can still remember, as a boy, the rejoicings over the closing of the last slaughter-house.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Go to the devil!” said the stranger in a tremendous voice, and “Shut that door after you.” So that brief interview terminated.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “But by that time Lady Harman had acquired the habit of reading and the habit of thinking over what she read, and from that it is an easy step to thinking over oneself and the circumstances of one’s own life. The one thing trains for the other.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “At times I suffered from the strangest sense of detachment from myself and the world about me. I seem to watch it all from the outside, from somewhere inconceivably remote, out of time, out of space, out of the stress and tragedy of it all. This feeling was very strong upon me that night.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Things have been, says the legal mind, and so we are here. The creative mind says we are here because things have yet to be.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “It was all a monstrous payment for courageous fiction, a gratuity in return for the one reality of human life – illusion. We gave them a feeling of hope and profit; we sent a tidal wave of water and confidence into their stranded affairs... Civilization is possible only through confidence, so that we can bank our money and go unarmed about the streets.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “It was a red-flannel chest-protector, one of those large quasi-hygienic objects that with pills and medicines take the place of beneficial relics and images among the Protestant peoples of Christendom.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “There were half a dozen villas burning on the Woking border.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “What was this place? – this place that to his senses seemed subtly quivering like a thing alive?”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Life is two things. Life is morality – life is adventure. Squire and master. Adventure rules, and morality looks up the trains in the Bradshaw. Morality tells you what is right, and adventure moves you. If morality means anything it means keeping bounds, respecting implications, respecting implicit bounds. If individuality means anything it means breaking bounds – adventure.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “This mark men and women set on pleasure and pain, Prendick, is the mark of the beast upon them, the mark of the beast from which they came. Pain! Pain and pleasure – they are for us, only so long as we wriggle in the dust...”
H. G. Wells Quote: “If my phrases shock the reader, that only shows it is high time he or she was shocked.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Common sense and every material reality insisted upon the unification of human life throughout the planet and the socialisation of its elementary needs, and pitted against that was the fact that every authority, every institution, every established way of thinking and living was framed to preserve the advantages of the ruling and possessing minority and the separate sovereignty of the militant states that had been evolved within the vanished circumstances of the past.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “He seemed under a chronic irritation of the greatest intensity. His habit of talking to himself in a low voice grew steadily upon him, but though Mrs. Hall listened conscientiously she could make neither head nor tail of what she heard.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “To ride a bicycle properly is very like a love affair – chiefly it is a matter of faith. Believe you do it, and the thing is done; doubt, and, for the life of you, you cannot.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Nobody read books, but women, parsons and idle people.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “You can’t see beauty with miserable eyes.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “It is good to stop by the track for a space, put aside the knapsack, wipe the brows, and talk a little of the upper slopes of the mountain we think we are climbing, would but the trees let us see it.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “One may as well starve one’s body out of a place as to starve one’s soul in one.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “Every conceivable sort of silly creature that has ever been created has been sent to cross me.”
H. G. Wells Quote: “This world is out of joint. It’s broken up and I doubt if it’ll heal. I doubt very much if it’ll heal. We are in the beginning of the sickness of the world!”
H. G. Wells Quote: “A real value of a talk is not how it goes but what it leaves in your memory, which is one reason perhaps why dialogues in books are always so boring to read.”
