Cyril Connolly
Quotations


The reward of art is not fame or success but intoxication: that is why so many bad artists are unable to give it up.

The artist is a member of the leisured classes who cannot pay for his leisure.

A best-seller is the golden touch of mediocre talent.

All charming people have something to conceal, usually their total dependence on the appreciation of others.

Imprisoned in every fat man a thin one is wildly signalling to be let out.

As repressed sadists are supposed to become policemen or butchers so those with an irrational fear of life become publishers.

There are many who dare not kill themselves for fear of what the neighbours will say.
