David Hare
To those whose god is honour, disgrace alone is sin.
Hare quotes
A weak mind sinks under prosperity, as well as under adversity. A strong and deep mind has two highest tides when the moon is at the full, and when there is no moon.
Hare
Purity is the feminine, Truth the masculine, of Honour.

David Hare quotes
The act of writing is the act of discovering what you believe.
David Hare
Nothing is further than Earth from Heaven: nothing is nearer than Heaven to Earth.

The ultimate tendency of civilization is toward barbarism.




David Hare quotes
Our poetry in the eighteenth century was prose; our prose in the seventeenth, poetry.
David Hare
The theatre is the best way of showing the gap between what is said and what is seen to be done, and that is why, ragged and gap-toothed as it is, it has still a far healthier potential than some poorer, abandoned arts.
Hare quotes
Poetry is the key to the hieroglyphics of Nature.
