„I will admit that an artist may be great and limited; by one word he may light up an abyss of soul; but there must be this one magical and unique word.“

—  George Moore (novelist)

Kontext: I will admit that an artist may be great and limited; by one word he may light up an abyss of soul; but there must be this one magical and unique word. Shakespeare gives us the word, Balzac, sometimes, after pages of vain striving, gives us the word, Tourgueneff gives it with miraculous certainty; but Henry James, no; a hundred times he flutters about it; his whole book is one long flutter near to the one magical and unique word, but the word is not spoken; and for want of the word his characters are never resolved out of the haze of nebulae. You are on a bowing acquaintance with them; they pass you in the street, they stop and speak to you, you know how they are dressed, you watch the colour of their eyes.

„A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.“

—  George Moore (novelist)

„Self is man's main business; all outside of self is uncertain, all comes from self, all returns to self.“
