'It occurred to me yesterday [August 22, 1940], how will the Russian state get on without Trotsky? Or the Communists elsewhere? Probably they will be forced to invent a substitute.'

'If there is a way out of the moral pigsty we are living in, the first step towards it is probably to grasp that "realism" does not pay, and that to sell out your friends and sit rubbing your hands while they are destroyed is not the last word in political wisdom.'

'The life of a clique is about five years and I have been writing long enough to see three of them come and two go—the Catholic gang, the Stalinist gang, and the present pacifist or, as they are sometimes nicknamed, Fascifist gang. My case against all of them is that they write mentally dishonest propaganda and degrade literary criticism to mutual arse-licking.'

'It is commonly said that every human being has in him the material for one good book, which is true in the same sense as it is true that every block of stone contains a statue. What is perhaps more to the point is that anyone able to hold a pen can write a fairly good novel of the unpretentious kind, if only at some period of his life he has managed to escape from literary society.'
