Quotes Hebe Liked

Graham Greene
“The sense of unhappiness is so much easier to convey than that of happiness. In misery we seem aware of our own existence, even though it may be in the form of a monstrous egotism: this pain of mine is individual, this nerve that winces belongs to me and to no other. But happiness annihilates us: we lose our identity.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

Graham Greene
“A story has no beginning or end: arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

Graham Greene
“Insecurity twists meanings and poisons trust. In a closely beleaguered city every sentry is a potential traitor.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair
