Arnold Bennett
Journalists say a thing that they know isn't true, in the hope that if they keep on saying it long enough it will be true.
Bennett quotes
Yes books are valuable. But no reading of books will take the place of a daily, candid, honest examination of what one has recently done, and what one is about to do - of a steady looking at one's self in the face (disconcerting though the sight may be).
Bennett
Does there, I wonder, exist a being who has read all, or approximately all, that the person of average culture is supposed to have read, and that not to have read is a social sin? If such a being does exist, surely he is an old, a very old man.




Bennett Arnold quotes
Being a husband is a whole-time job. That is why so many husbands fail. They can't give their entire attention to it.
Bennett Arnold
A cause may be inconvenient, but it's magnificent. It's like champagne or high heels, and one must be prepared to suffer for it.
Arnold Bennett quotes
The price of justice is eternal publicity.
Arnold Bennett
The real tragedy is the tragedy of the man who never in his life braces himself for his one supreme effort-he never stretches to his full capacity, never stands up to his full stature.
