Have the courage of your desire  (George Gissing Quotes) I hate and fear ‘science’ because of my conviction that, for long to come if not for ever, it will be the remorseless enemy of mankind. I see it destroying all simplicity and gentleness of life, all the beauty of the world; I see it restoring barbarism under a mask of civilization; I see it darkening men’s minds and hardening their hearts  (George Gissing Quotes) The mere chink of cups and saucers tunes the mind to happy repose  (George Gissing Quotes) Money is made at Christmas out of holly and mistletoe, but who save the vendors would greatly care if no green branch were procurable?  (George Gissing Quotes) London is a huge shop, with a hotel on the upper storeys  (George Gissing Quotes) For one thing, I know every book of mine by its scent  (George Gissing Quotes) I have the happiness of a passing moment, and what more can mortal ask?  (George Gissing Quotes) Parks are but pavement disguised with a growth of grass  (George Gissing Quotes) To be at other people’s orders brings out all the bad in me  (George Gissing Quotes) No, no; women, old or young, should never have to think about money  (George Gissing Quotes) Persistent prophecy is a familiar way of assuring the event  (George Gissing Quotes) Flippancy, the most hopeless form of intellectual vice  (George Gissing Quotes) I have the happiness of the passing moment, and what more can mortal ask?  (George Gissing Quotes) For the man sound of body and serene of mind there is no such thing as bad weather; every day has its beauty, and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously  (George Gissing Quotes) A pipe for the hour of work; a cigarette for the hour of conception; a cigar for the hour of vacuity  (George Gissing Quotes) The first time I read an excellent work, it is to me just as if I gained a new friend; and when I read over a book I have perused before, it resembles the meeting of an old one  (George Gissing Quotes) I know every book of mine by its smell, and I have but to put my nose between the pages to be reminded of all sorts of things  (George Gissing Quotes) The insult was thrown out with a peculiarly reckless air; it astounded the hearer, who sat for an instant with staring eyes and lips apart; then the blood rushed to his cheeks  (George Gissing Quotes) It is our duty never to speak ill of others, you know; least of all when we know that to do so will be the cause of much pain and trouble  (George Gissing Quotes) The thought, however, of his girls having to work for money was so utterly repulsive to him that he could never seriously dwell upon it  (George Gissing Quotes) It is the mind which creates the world around us, and even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours, my heart will never stir to the emotions with which yours is touched  (George Gissing Quotes) Perhaps it is while drinking tea that I most of all enjoy the sense of leisure  (George Gissing Quotes) And why should any man who writes, even if he writes things immortal, nurse anger at the world’s neglect? Who asked him to publish? Who promised him a hearing? Who has broken faith with him? Your poem, your novel, who bargained with you for it?  (George Gissing Quotes) Money is time. With money I buy for cheerful use the hours which otherwise would not in any sense be mine; nay, which would make me their miserable bondsman  (George Gissing Quotes) That is one of the bitter curses of poverty; it leaves no right to be generous  (George Gissing Quotes) Time is money says the proverb, but turn it around and you get a precious truth. Money is time  (George Gissing Quotes) I am much better employed from every point of view, when I live solely for my own satisfaction, than when I begin to worry about the world. The world frightens me, and a frightened man is no good for anything  (George Gissing Quotes) To every man it is decreed: Thou shalt live alone. Happy they who imagine that they have escaped the common lot; happy, whilst they imagine it  (George Gissing Quotes) The truths of life are not discovered by us. At moments unforeseen, some gracious influence descends upon the soul, touching it to an emotion which, we know not how, the mind transmutes into thought  (George Gissing Quotes) It is because nations tend towards stupidity and baseness that mankind moves so slowly; it is because individuals have a capacity for better things that it moves at all  (George Gissing Quotes)
