Text Quotes
Children notice things first, people later  (Walker Percy Quotes) It is not merely the truth of science that makes it beautiful, but its simplicity  (Walker Percy Quotes) Small disconnected facts, if you take note of them, have a way of becoming connected  (Walker Percy Quotes) The enduring is something which must be accounted for. One cannot simply shrug it off  (Walker Percy Quotes) I sometimes think novelists write about sex in order to avoid boring themselves to death  (Walker Percy Quotes) Ignorance, if recognized, is often more fruitful than the appearance of knowledge  (Walker Percy Quotes) You can get all A's and still flunk life  (Walker Percy Quotes) My mother refused to let me fail. So I insisted  (Walker Percy Quotes) Since grief only aggravates your loss, grieve not for what is past  (Walker Percy Quotes) I am not ashamed to use the word class. I will also plead guilty to another charge. The charge is that people belonging to my class think they’re better than other people. You’re damn right we’re better. We’re better because we do not shirk our obligations either to ourselves or to others... we live by our lights, we die by our lights, and whoever the high gods may be, we’ll look them in the eye without apology  (Walker Percy Quotes) The fact is I am quite happy in a movie, even a bad movie. Other people, so I have read, treasure memorable moments in their lives  (Walker Percy Quotes) The present age is demented. It is possessed by a sense of dislocation, a loss of personal identity, an alternating sentimentality and rage which, in an individual patient, could be characterized as dementia  (Walker Percy Quotes) I couldn’t stand it. I still can’t stand it. I can’t stand the way things are. I cannot tolerate this age  (Walker Percy Quotes) What needs to be discharged is the intolerable tenderness of the past, the past gone and grieved over and never made sense of. Music ransoms us from the past, declares an amnesty, brackets and sets aside the old puzzles. Sing a new song. Start a new life, get a girl, look into her shadowy eyes, smile  (Walker Percy Quotes) A novel is what you call something that won’t sell if you call it poems or short stories  (Walker Percy Quotes) Hatred strikes me as one of the few signs of life remaining in the world. This is another thing about the world which is upsidedown: all the friendly and likable people seem dead to me; only the haters seem alive  (Walker Percy Quotes) The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair  (Walker Percy Quotes) You live in a deranged age, more deranged that usual, because in spite of great scientific and technological advances, man has not the faintest idea of who he is or what he is doing  (Walker Percy Quotes) A good title should be like a good metaphor. It should intrigue without being too baffling or too obvious  (Walker Percy Quotes) I have discovered that most people have no one to talk to, no one, that is, who really wants to listen. When it does at last dawn on a man that you really want to hear about his business, the look that comes over his face is something to see  (Walker Percy Quotes) As for hobbies, people with stimulating hobbies suffer from the most noxious of despairs since they are tranquilized in their despair  (Walker Percy Quotes) Where there is chance of gain, there is also chance of loss. Whenever one courts great happiness, one also risks malaise  (Walker Percy Quotes) I had discovered that a person does not have to be this or be that or be anything, not even oneself. One is free  (Walker Percy Quotes) Why is there such a gap between nonspeaking animals and speaking man, when there is no other such gap in nature? Is it possible that a theory of man is nothing more nor less than a theory of the speaking creatures?  (Walker Percy Quotes) A good rotation. A rotation I define as the experiencing of the new beyond the expectation of the experiencing of the new  (Walker Percy Quotes) Why is it that one can look at a lion or a planet or an owl or at someone’s finger as long as one pleases, but looking into the eyes of another person is, if prolonged past a second, a perilous affair?  (Walker Percy Quotes) Why is it that no other species but man gets bored? Under the circumstances in which a man gets bored, a dog goes to sleep  (Walker Percy Quotes) Losing hope is not so bad. There’s something worse: losing hope and hiding it from yourself  (Walker Percy Quotes) What is the nature of the search? you ask. Really it is very simple, at least for a fellow like me; so simple that it is easily overlooked. The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. This morning, for example, I felt as if I had come to myself on a strange island. And what does such a cast away do? Why he pokes around the neighborhood and he doesn’t miss a trick. To become aware of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair  (Walker Percy Quotes) In this world goodness is destined to be defeated. But a man must go down fighting. That is the victory. To do anything less is to be less than a man  (Walker Percy Quotes)
