Citáty Frank Harris


„Ženy jsou podivní tvorové, jimž láska propůjčuje prorocké nadání.“

„Člověk se dopouští z nevědomosti chyb, které nelze napravit.“


„Dávat a odpouštět je pravé evangelium.“

„[Referring to the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde]... Will civilization never reach humane ideals? Will men always punish most severely the sins they do not understand and which hold forth for them no temptation? Did Jesus suffer in vain?“ Oscar Wilde

„Such actions are beyond praise: it is the perfume of such sweet and noble human sympathy that makes this wild beasts' cage a world habitable for men.“ Oscar Wilde

„Memory is the mother of the muses, prototype Artist. As a rule picks and highlights what is important, omitting what is accidental or trivial. Occasionally, however, is mistaken as all the other artists. Nevertheless it is what I take as a guide page.“ My Life and Loves

„But no one will understand Oscar Wilde who for a moment loses sight of the fact that he was a pagan born: as Gautier says, "One for whom the visible world alone exists," endowed with all the Greek sensuousness and love of plastic beauty; a pagan, like Nietzsche and Gautier, wholly out of sympathy with Christianity, one of "the Confraternity of the faithless who "cannot" believe," (His own words in "De Profundis.") to whom a sense of sin and repentance are symptoms of weakness and disease.“ Oscar Wilde, His Life and Confessions, Vol 1

„He was dreadfully punished by men utterly his inferiors: ruined, outlawed, persecuted till Death itself came as a deliverance. His sentence impeaches his judges.“ Oscar Wilde, His Life and Confessions, Vol 1


„There are special reasons, too, why I should handle this story. Oscar Wilde was a friend of mine for many years: I could not help prizing him to the very end: he was always to me a charming, soul-animating influence. He was dreadfully punished by men utterly his inferiors: ruined, outlawed, persecuted till Death itself came as a deliverance.“ Oscar Wilde, His Life and Confessions, Vol 1

„The truth is that the fever of desire in youth is fleeting disease that intimacy promptly cure.“ My Life and Loves

„I will, however, establish that success in love, as in all other aspects of life, belongs, as a rule, to the persistent and fiber man. Chaucer had reason to make the Old Bath confess: 'The truth is, more or less, we always succumb to attention and perseverance'.“ My Life and Loves

„(...) the easiest to conquer were also more worthy of it, because women have better intuition than men for the love affinity.“ My Life and Loves


„What will happen to those who stone the prophets and persecute the masters? His fate is written in flaming letters on each page of the history.“ My Life and Loves

„(...) always regretted that good memory often prevents us from thinking for ourselves.“ My Life and Loves

„For the first time, vague doubts assaulted me, the shattering suspicion that for all pleasure and joy in life we had to pay... I repel fear. If I had to pay I would pay, after all, the memory of ecstasy while pungisse its pain could never be erased.“ My Life and Loves

„The pleasure men take in denigration of the gifted is one of the puzzles of life“ Oscar Wilde, His Life and Confessions, Vol 1
