76 D.H. Lawrence quotes:



"We are almost always guilty of the hate we encounter."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Hate Quotes
"The ordinary novel would trace the history of the diamond - but I say, `Diamond, what! This is carbon.' And my diamond may be coal or soot and my theme is carbon."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: History Quotes
"We have to hate our immediate predecessors to get free of their authority."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Hate Quotes Generations Quotes
"Never trust the teller, trust the tale."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Gossip Quotes
"Oh literature, oh the glorious Art, how it preys upon the marrow in our bones. It scoops the stuffing out of us, and chucks us aside. Alas!"
"The cruelest thing a man can do to a woman is to portray her as perfection."
"Once you abstract from this, once you generalize and postulate Universals, you have departed from the creative reality, and entered the realm of static fixity, mechanism, materialism."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Reality Quotes
"I want relations which are not purely personal, based on purely personal qualities; but relations based upon some unanimous accord in truth or belief, and a harmony of purpose, rather than of personality. I am weary of personality. Let us be easy and impersonal, not forever fingering over our own souls, and the souls of our acquaintances, but trying to create a new life, a new common life, a new complete tree of life from the roots that are within us."
"It is all a question of sensitiveness. Brute force and overbearing may make a terrific effect. But in the end, that which lives by delicate sensitiveness. If it were a question of brute force, not a single human baby would survive for a fortnight. It is the grass of the field, most frail of all things, that supports all life all the time. But for the green grass, no empire would rise, no man would eat bread: for grain is grass; and Hercules or Napoleon or Henry Ford would alike be denied existence."

"Take nothing, to say: I have it! For you can possess nothing, not even peace."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Peace Quotes
"The true self is not aware that it is a self. A bird, as it sings, sings itself. But not according to a picture. It has no idea of itself."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Self Quotes
"It is so much more difficult to live with one's body than with one's soul. One's body is so much more exacting: what it won't have it won't have, and nothing can make bitter into sweet."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Body Quotes
"The horse, the horse! The symbol of surging potency and power of movement, of action."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Action Quotes
"Every new stroke of civilization has cost the lives of countless brave men, who have fallen defeated by the ''dragon,'' in their efforts to win the apples of the Hesperides, or the fleece of gold. Fallen in their efforts to overcome the old, half sordid savagery of the lower stages of creation, and win the next stage."
"The great living experience for every man is his adventure into the woman. The man embraces in the woman all that is not himself, and from that one resultant, from that embrace, comes every new action."
"Every civilization when it loses its inner vision and its cleaner energy, falls into a new sort of sordidness, more vast and more stupendous than the old savage sort. An Augean stable of metallic filth."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Energy Quotes Decadence Quotes
"You must drop all your democracy. You must not believe in ''the people.'' One class is no better than another. It must be a case of Wisdom, or Truth. Let the working classes be working classes. That is the truth. There must be an aristocracy of people who have wisdom, and there must be a Ruler: a Kaiser: no Presidents and democracies."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Democracy Quotes
"In every living thing there is the desire for love."
Author: Lawrence Quotes Category: Cute Quotes
"Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration."
"The trains roared by like projectiles level on the darkness, fuming and burning, making the valley clang with their passage. They were gone, and the lights of the towns and villages glittered in silence."
