T.H. White Quote: “Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”
T.H. White Quote: “Perhaps we all give the best of our hearts uncritically – to those who hardly think about us in return.”
T.H. White Quote: “If people reach perfection they vanish, you know.”
T.H. White Quote: “The Destiny of Man is to unite, not to divide. If you keep on dividing you end up as a collection of monkeys throwing nuts at each other out of separate trees.”

You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then – to learn.”

T.H. White Quote: “When shall I be dead and rid Of all the wrong my father did? How long, how long ’till spade and hearse Put to sleep my mother’s curse?”
T.H. White Quote: “The fisherman fishes as the urchin eats cream buns, from lust.”
T.H. White Quote: “People commit suicide through weakness, not through strength.”
T.H. White Quote: “The word “feral” has a kind of magic potency which allied itself to two other words, “ferocious” and “free.” To revert to a feral state!”
T.H. White Quote: “Now, in their love, which was stronger, there were the seeds of hatred and fear and confusion growing at the same time: for love can exist with hatred, each preying on the other, and this is what gives it its greatest fury.”
T.H. White Quote: “Love is a trick played on us by the forces of evolution. Pleasure is the bait laid down by the same. There is only power. Power is of the individual mind but the mind’s power is not enough. Power of the body decides everything in the end and only might is right.”

T.H. White Quote: “Believe me, the so-called primitive races who worshipped animals as gods were not so daft as people choose to pretend. At least they were humble. Why should not God have come to the earth as an earth-worm? There are a great many more worms than men, and they do a great deal more good.”
T.H. White Quote: “Wrongs have to be redressed by reason, not by force.”
T.H. White Quote: “The destiny of man is an individualistic destiny.”

T.H. White Quote: “Perhaps he does not want to be friends with you until he knows what you are like. With owls, it is never easy-come-easy-go.”
T.H. White Quote: “War is like a fire. One man may start it, but it will spread all over. It is not about one thing in particular.”
T.H. White Quote: “Merlyn took the Wart’s hand and said kindly, “You are young, and do not understand these things. But you will learn that owls are the most courteous, single-hearted and faithful creatures living. You must never be familiar, rude or vulgar with them, or make them look ridiculous. Their mother is Athene, the goddess of wisdom, and, although they are often ready to play the buffoon to amuse you, such conduct is the prerogative of the truly wise. No owl can possibly be called Archie.”
T.H. White Quote: “If there is one thing I can’t stand, it is stupidity. I always say that stupidity is the Sin against the Holy Ghost.”
T.H. White Quote: “It is a pity that there are no big creatures to prey on humanity. If there were enough dragons and rocs, perhaps mankind would turn its might against them. Unfortunately man is preyed upon by microbes, which are too small to be appreciated.”

T.H. White Quote: “It is the bad people who need to have principles to restrain them.”
T.H. White Quote: “The miracle was that he had been allowed to do a miracle. And ever, says Mallory, Sir Lancelot wept, as he had been a child that had been beaten.”
T.H. White Quote: “They made me see that the world was beautiful if you were beautiful, and that you couldn’t get unless you gave. And you had to give without wanting to get.”
T.H. White Quote: “Cavall came simply and gave his heart and soul.”
T.H. White Quote: “She hardly ever thought of him. He had worn a place for himself in some corner of her heart, as a sea shell, always boring against the rock, might do. The making of the place had been her pain. But now the shell was safely in the rock. It was lodged, and ground no longer.”
T.H. White Quote: “Jenny, all my life I have wanted to do miracles. I have wanted to be holy. I suppose it was ambition or pride or some other unworthy thing. It was not enough for me to conquer the world – I wanted to conquer heaven too.”
