Sir Max Beerbohm
Quotations


The Non-Conformist Conscience makes cowards of us all.

The most perfect caricature is that which, on a small surface, with the simplest means, most accurately exaggerates, to the highest point, the peculiarities of a human being, at his most characteristic moment in the most beautiful manner.

Men of genius are not quick judges of character. Deep thinking and high imagining blunt that trivial instinct by which you and I size people up.

The dullard's envy of brilliant men is always assuaged by the suspicion that they will come to a bad end.

One might well say that mankind is divisible into two great classes: hosts and guests.

To say that a man is vain means merely that he is pleased with the effect he produces on other people. A conceited man is satisfied with the effect he produces on himself.
