It does those things which it ought not to do and leaves undone the things it ought to have done. But it has not yet gone on strike altogether  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) She suddenly saw Wimsey in a new light. She knew him to be intelligent, clean, courteous, wealthy, well-read, amusing and enamored, but he had not so far produced in her that crushing sense of inferiority which leads to prostration and hero-worship. But she now realized that there was, after all, something godlike about him. He could control a horse  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) In fact, there is perhaps only one human being in a thousand who is passionately interested in his job for the job’s sake. The difference is that if that one person in a thousand is a man, we say, simply, that he is passionately keen on his job; if she is a woman, we say she is a freak  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) The only ethical principle which has made science possible is that the truth shall be told all the time. If we do not penalize false statements made in error, we open up the way for false statements by intention. And a false statement of fact, made deliberately, is the most serious crime a scientist can commit  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) But to Lord Peter the world presented itself as an entertaining labyrinth of side-issues  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) It’s disquieting to reflect that one’s dreams never symbolize one’s real wishes, but always something Much Worse... If I really wanted to be passionately embraced by Peter, I should dream of dentists or gardening. I wonder what unspeakable depths of awfulness can only be expressed by the polite symbol of Peter’s embraces?  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) If you want your own way, God will let you have it. Hell is the enjoyment of one’s own way forever  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) What? Sunday morning in an English family and no sausages? God bless my soul, what’s the world coming to, eh?  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) Of course, there is some truth in advertising. There’s yeast in bread, but you can’t make bread with yeast alone. Truth in advertising is like leaven, which a woman hid in three measures of meal. It provides a suitable quantity of gas, with which to blow out a mass of crude misrepresentation into a form that the public can swallow  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) There is one vast human experience that confronts us so formidably that we cannot pretend to overlook it. There is no solution to death. There is no means whatever whereby you or I, by taking thought, can solve this difficulty in such a manner that it no longer exists  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) Unlike music or poetry or painting, food rouses no response in passionate and emotional youth. Only when the surge of the blood is quieted does gastronomy come into its own with philosophy and theology and the sterner delights of the mind  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) There’s truth as far as you knows it; and there’s truth as far as you’re asked for it. But they don’t represent the whole truth - not necessarily  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) The making of miracles to edification was as ardently admired by pious Victorians as it was sternly discouraged by Jesus of Nazareth. Not that the Victorians were unique in this respect. Modern writers also indulge in edifying miracles though they generally prefer to use them to procure unhappy endings, by which piece of thaumaturgy they win the title of realists  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) On the strength of his literary output alone... any woman of sense would decline to tackle D.H. Lawrence at 1,000 pounds a night.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) That you cannot have Christian principles without Christ is becoming increasingly clear, because their validity as principles depends on Christ’s authority.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) Every great man has a woman behind him ... And every great woman has some man or other in front of her, tripping her up.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) What is repugnant to every human being is to be reckoned always as a member of a class and not as an individual person.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) People who prefer to believe the worst of others will breed war and religious persecutions while the world lasts.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) I often think when a man’s once past a certain age, the older he grows the tougher he gets, and women the same or more so.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) To make a deliberate falsification for personal gain is the last, worst depth to which either scholar or artist can descend in work or life.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) There certainly does seem a possibility that the detective story will come to an end, simply because the public will have learnt all the tricks.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) ... of all devils let loose in the world there is no devil like devoted love ...  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) Nothing is more vulgar than a careful avoidance of beginning a letter with the first person singular ...  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) Wherever you find a great man, you will find a great mother or a great wife standing behind him -- or so they used to say. It would be interesting to know how many great women have had great fathers and husbands behind them.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) The rule seemed to be that a great woman must either die unwed ... or find a still greater man to marry her. ... The great man, on the other hand, could marry where he liked, not being restricted to great women; indeed, it was often found sweet and commendable in him to choose a woman of no sort of greatness at all.  (Dorothy L Sayers Quotes) But that’s men all over ...
