Evelyn Waugh
Quotations


An artist must be a reactionary. He has to stand out against the tenor of the age and not go flopping along.

Almost all crime is due to the repressed desire for aesthetic expression.

The human mind is inspired enough when it comes to inventing horrors; it is when it tries to invent a Heaven that it shows itself cloddish.

Manners are especially the need of the plain. The pretty can get away with anything.

News is what a chap who doesn't care much about anything wants to read. And it's only news until he's read it. After that it's dead.

It is a curious thing that every creed promises a paradise which will be absolutely uninhabitable for anyone of civilised taste.

Punctuality is the virtue of the bored.

One forgets words as one forgets names. One's vocabulary needs constant fertilizing or it will die.
