James Stephens

Finality is death. Perfection is finality. Nothing is perfect. There are lumps in it.

Originality does not consist in saying what no one has ever said before, but in saying exactly what you think yourself.

Curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will.

A secret is a weapon and a friend. Man is God's secret, Power is man's secret, Sex is woman's secret.

Men come of age at sixty, women at fifteen.
