T.H. White Quote: “Queen Morgause,” said Gwenever thoughtfully, “must have been a strange person.”
T.H. White Quote: “Unfortunately we have tried to establish Right by Might, and you just can’t do that.”
T.H. White Quote: “Nearly all the ways of giving justice are unfair.”
T.H. White Quote: “The race will find that capitalists and communists modify themselves so much during the ages that they end by being indistinguishable as democrats...”
T.H. White Quote: “Yes, that is the equality of man. Slaughter anybody who is better than you are, and then we shall be equal soon enough. All equally dead.”
T.H. White Quote: “What have you done with Watt?′ You should try to speak with out assonance,” said the wizard. “For instance, ‘the beer is never clear near here, dear,’ is unfortunate, even as assonance.”
T.H. White Quote: “To disbelieve in original sin, does not mean that you must believe in original virtue. It only means that you must not believe that people are utterly wicked.”
T.H. White Quote: “For in those days love was ruled by a different convention to ours. In those days it was chivalrous, adult, long, religious, almost platonic. It was not a matter about which you could make accusations lightly. It was not, as we take it to be nowadays, begun and ended in a long week-end.”
T.H. White Quote: “I am writing a treatise just now” said the badger, coughing diffidently to show that he was absolutely set on explaining it, “which is to point out why Man has become the master of the animals. Perhaps you would like to hear it? It’s for my doctor’s degree you know,” he added hastily, before Wart could protest. He got few chances of reading his treatise to anybody, so he could not bear to let the opportunity slip by.”
T.H. White Quote: “The best cure for grief is learning”.”
T.H. White Quote: “It has to be admitted that starving nations never seem to be quite so starving that they cannot afford to have far more expensive armaments than anybody else.”
T.H. White Quote: “Perhaps war was due to fear: to fear of reliability. Unless there was truth, and unless people told the truth, there was always danger in everything outside the individual. You told the truth to yourself, but you had no surety for your neighbour. This uncertainty must end by making the neighbour a menace.”
T.H. White Quote: “Saints, as the Old Ones knew very well, were a bad class of people to cross, so the children stood up hastily. ‘Och, now,’ they said. ‘Your Holiness, no offence, we are sure. We were only at wishing to make an exchange of ideas.”
T.H. White Quote: “October 20th, 1939 There don’t seem to be many people being killed yet – no hideous slaughters of gas and bacteria. But the truth is going. We are suffocating in propaganda instead of gas, slowly feeling our minds go dead.”
T.H. White Quote: “He may even have felt that God needed him more than Guenever did.”
T.H. White Quote: “Neither force, nor argument, nor opinion,” said Merlyn with the deepest sincerity, “are thinking. Argument is only a display of mental force, a sort of fencing with points in order to gain a victory, not for truth. Opinions are the blind alleys of lazy or of stupid men, who are unable to think.”
T.H. White Quote: “Grey damp would be around them, and the sun, a copper penny, would fade away. The wings next to their own wings would shade into vacancy, until each bird was a lonely sound in cold annihilation, a presence after uncreation. And there they would hang in chartless nothing, seemingly without speed or left or right or top or bottom, until as suddenly as ever the copper penny glowed and the serpents writhed.”
T.H. White Quote: “He said, ‘Good dog, Beaumont the valiant, sleep now, old friend Beaumont, good old dog.’ Then Robin’s falchion let Beaumont out of this world, to run free with Orion and roll among the stars.”
T.H. White Quote: “He was feeling a new heresy coming over him, possibly as a result of the spirits, and it had something to do about the celibacy of the clergy. He had one already about the shape of his tonsure and the usual one about the date of Easter, as well as his of Pelagian business-but the latest was beginning to make him feel as if the presence of children was unnecessary.”
T.H. White Quote: “The increasingly cynical court thought Arthur, “hypocritical, as all decent men must be if you assume decency cannot exist.”
T.H. White Quote: “Merlyn was a staunch conservative, which was rather progressive of him, when you reflect that he was living backwards.”
T.H. White Quote: “Were they, for some purpose almost too cunning for belief, only disguised as themselves?”
T.H. White Quote: “Everybody is always saying what a parfit, gentle knight I am, but it has nothing to do with me. It is Arthur’s idea. It is what he has wished on all the younger generation, like Gareth, and now it is fashionable.”
T.H. White Quote: “I suppose one has to be desperate, to be a successful writer. One has to reach a rock-bottom at which one can afford to let everything go hang. One has got to damn the public, chance one’s living, say what one thinks, and be oneself. Then something may come out.”
T.H. White Quote: “He became restless to embrace their example, but he was shy. Perhaps their family groups, he thought, would resent his intrusion: yet he wanted not to be lonely: he wanted to join in, and to enjoy the exercise of morning flight, which was so evidently a pleasure to them.”
T.H. White Quote: “An ordinary fellow, who did not spend half his life torturing himself by trying to discover what was right so as to conquer his inclination towards what was wrong, might have cut the knot which brought their ruin.”
T.H. White Quote: “Man seldom looks above his own height after adolescence.”
T.H. White Quote: “I am a failure in the world. I do not rule people, nor deceive them for the sake of power, nor try to swindle their livelihood into my own possession. I say to them: Please go freely on your way, and I will do my best to follow mine. Well then, Maria, although this is not a fashionable way of going on, nor even a successful one, it is a thing which I believe in – that people must not tyrannize, nor try to be great because they are little.”
T.H. White Quote: “They believed that the most important thing in the world was to find out what one liked doing, and then to do it. Thus the people who liked being hunters, were hunters; those who liked fishing, fished; and anybody who did not like doing anything at all was supported by the others with the greatest care and commiseration, for they considered him to be the most unfortunate of mortals.”
T.H. White Quote: “On the contrary, he made it clear that the business of the philosophers was to make ideas available, and not to impose them on people.”
T.H. White Quote: “Wherever they went and wherever they slept, the east wind whistled in the reeds, and the geese went over high in the starlight, honking at the stars.”
T.H. White Quote: “How condescending, how splendidly democratic of Sir Lancelot, to laugh, as if he were an ordinary man! Perhaps he eats and drinks as well, or even sleeps at night.”
T.H. White Quote: “We are so numerous that we are starving. Therefore we must encourage still larger families so as to become yet more numerous and starving. When we are so numerous and starving as all that, obviously we shall have a right to take other people’s stores of seed. Besides, we shall by then have a numerous and starving army.”
T.H. White Quote: “Arthur was not one of those interesting characters whose subtle motives can be dissected. He was only a simple and affectionate man, because Merlyn had believed that love and simplicity were worth having.”
T.H. White Quote: “True warfare is rarer in Nature than cannibalism.”
T.H. White Quote: “A fortnight after the Winchester tournament, while Elaine nursed her hero back to life, Guenever was having a scene with Sir Bors at court. Being a woman-hater, Bors always had instructive scenes with women. He said what he thought, and they said what they thought, and neither of them understood the other a bit.”
T.H. White Quote: “What a bursting heart of gratitude and triumph as the ravening monster slowly paced down the arm with gripping steps and pounced upon his breakfast! The rest of the day was a glow of pleasure, a kind of still life in which the sun shone on the flowers with more than natural brilliance, giving them the high lights of porcelain.”
T.H. White Quote: “They did not look at these things as good or bad, exciting, rational or terrible. They did not look at them at all, but accepted them as Done.”
T.H. White Quote: “It is so fatally easy to make young children believe that they are horrible.”
