Citações Max Beerbohm

„O trabalho de um homem é mais o suplemento necessário dele próprio do que o resultado disso.“

„Existe muito mais coisa para ser dita sobre o fracasso. Ele é muito mais interessante do que o sucesso.“

„Nenhum trabalho de qualidade pode ser feito sem concentração e auto-sacrifício, esforço e dúvida“

„Only the insane take themselves seriously.“

„Only mediocrity can be trusted to be always at its best. Genius must always have lapses proportionate to its triumphs.“

Collected Works of Max Beerbohm

„Nobody ever died of laughter.“

„Mankind is divisible into two great classes: hosts and guests.“

„One is taught to refrain from irony, because mankind does tend to take it literally. In the hearing of the gods, who hear all, it is conversely unsage to make a simple and direct statement. So what is one to do? The dilema needs a whole volume to itself.“ Zuleika Dobson

„Some people are born to lift heavy weights,
some are born to juggle golden balls.“

„Our hero's unreasoning rage was fed by a not unreasonable jealousy. It was clear to him that Zuleika had forgotten his existence. To-day, as soon as he had killed her love, she had shown him how much less to her was his love than the crowd's. And now again it was only the crowd she cared for. He followed with his eyes her long slender figure as she threaded her way in and out of the crowd, sinuously, confidingly, producing a penny from one lad's elbow, a threepenny-bit from between another's neck and collar, half a crown from another's hair, and always repeating in that flute-like voice of hers: "Well, this is rather queer!“ Zuleika Dobson

„No fine work can be done without concentration and self-sacrifice and toil and doubt.“

„I utilise all my spare moments. I've read twenty-seven of the Hundred Best Books. I collect ferns.“ Zuleika Dobson
