„Nunca me casei porque não foi necessário. Tenho três animais em casa que cumprem a função de marido. O cachorro grunhe de manhã, o papagaio pragueja à tarde e o gato chega de madrugada.“

„I never married because there was no need. I have three pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon, and a cat that comes home late at night.“


„Let me be mad, then, by all means! mad with the madness of Absinthe, the wildest, most luxurious madness in the world! Vive la folie! Vive l'amour! Vive l'animalisme! Vive le Diable!“ Wormwood: A Drama of Paris

„No one is contented in this world, I believe. There is always something left to desire, and the last thing longed for always seems the most necessary to happiness.“ A Romance of Two Worlds

„So you are tired of your life, young man! All the more reason have you to live. Anyone can die. A murderer has moral force enough to jeer at his hangman. It is very easy to draw the last breath. It can be accomplished successfully by a child or a warrior. One pang of far less anguish than the toothache, and all is over. There is nothing heroic about it, I assure you! It is as common as going to bed; it is almost prosy. is heroism, if you like; but death is a mere cessation of business. And to make a rapid and rude exit off the stage before the prompter gives the sign is always, to say the least of it, ungraceful. Act the part out, no matter how bad the play. What say you?“ A Romance of Two Worlds

„any era that is dominated by the love of money only, has a rotten core within it and must perish“

„The finest actor is he who play the comedy of life perfectly, as i aspire to do. To walk well, talk well, weep well, laugh well and die well, it is all pure acting, because in every man there is the dumb dreadful immortal spirit who is real- who cannot act, who-is and who steadily maintains an infinite though speechless protest against the body's lies“ The Sorrows of Satan or The Strange Experience of One Geoffrey Tempest, Millionaire

„Few authors feel sufficiently themselves to make others ''feel“


„takes its colours from the mind, my dear friend;”—he said—“If you discover evil suggestions in my music, the evil, I fear, must be in your own nature.“ The Sorrows of Satan

„Curious that it is impossible for a man to be original without attracting around him a set of unoriginal minds, as though he were a honey-pot and they the flies!“

„I can dip the pen in my own blood if I choose.“ Vendetta or the Story of One Forgotten

„I trusted in friendship rather than love“ Vendetta or the Story of One Forgotten


„no fame is actually worth much now-a-days,—because it is not classic fame, strong in reposeful old-world dignity,—it is blatant noisy notoriety merely.“ The Sorrows of Satan

„all the best, greatest, purest and worthiest things in life are beyond all market-value and that the gifts of the gods are not for sale.“ The Sorrows of Satan

„Be sure that if you are unhappily celebrated for either beauty, wit, intellect, or all three together, half society wishes you dead already, and the other half tries to make you as wretched as possible while you are alive.“ The Sorrows of Satan or The Strange Experience of One Geoffrey Tempest, Millionaire

„Beauty combined with wantonness frequently ends in the drawn twitch, fixed eye and helpless limbs of life-in-death. It is Nature’s revenge on the outraged body,—and do you know, Eternity’s revenge on the impure Soul is extremely similar?“ The Sorrows of Satan or The Strange Experience of One Geoffrey Tempest, Millionaire
