Quotes and Images From The Works of Gilbert Parker   By: (1862-1932)

Book cover

First Page:



A human life he held to be a trifle in the big sum of time

A heart break for that kind is their salvation

A man may be forgiven for a sin, but the effect remains

A look too bright for joy, too intense for despair

A sort of chuckle not entirely pleasant

A man you could bank on, and draw your interest reg'lar

A left handed boy is all right in the world

A cloak of words to cover up the real thought behind

Aboriginal in all of us, who must have a sign for an emotion

Aboriginal dispersion

Adaptability was his greatest weapon in life

Advantage to live where nothing was required of her but truth

After which comes steady happiness or the devil to pay (wedding)

Agony in thinking about the things we're never going to do

Ah, let it be soon! Ah, let him die soon!

Air of certainty and universal comprehension

All humour in him had a strain of the sardonic

All genius is at once a blessing or a curse

All the world's mad but thee and me

All men are worse than most women

All is fair where all is foul

All he has to do is to be vague, and look prodigious (Scientist)

All are hurt some time

Always hoping the best from the worst of us

Always calling to something, for something outside ourselves

An inner sorrow is a consuming fire

And even envy praised her

Anger was the least injurious of all grounds for separation

Answered, with the indifference of despair

Antipathy of the lesser to the greater nature

Antipathy of the man in the wrong to the man in the right

As if our penalties were only paid by ourselves!

At first and at the last he was kind

Ate some coffee beans and drank some cold water

Audience that patronisingly listens outside a room or window

Awkward for your friends and gratifying to your enemies

Babbling covers a lot of secrets

Bad turns good sometimes, when you know the how

Begin to see how near good is to evil

Beginning of a lifetime of experience, comedy, and tragedy

Being tired you can sleep, and in sleep you can forget

Being generous with other people's money

Being young, she exaggerated the importance of the event

Being a man of very few ideas, he cherished those he had

Beneath it all there was a little touch of ridicule

Boldness without rashness, and hope without vain thinking

But I don't think it is worth doing twice

But to pay the vulgar penalty of prison ah!

But a wounded spirit who can bear

But the years go on, and friends have an end

Came of a race who set great store by mothers and grandmothers

Carrying with him the warm atmosphere of a good woman's love

Cherish any alleviating lie

Clever men are trying

Cling to beliefs long after conviction has been shattered

Confidence in a weak world gets unearned profit often

Conquest not important enough to satisfy ambition

Counsel of the overwise to go jolting through the soul

Courage which awaits the worst the world can do

Courage; without which, men are as the standing straw

Credulity, easily transmutable into superstition

Damnable propinquity

Dangerous man, as all enthusiasts are

Death is not the worst of evils

Death is a magnificent ally; it untangles knots

Delicate revenge which hath its hour with every man

Did not let him think that she was giving up anything for him

Do what you feel you've got to do, and never mind what happens

Does any human being know what he can bear of temptation

Don't go at a fence till you're sure of your seat

Don't be a bigger fool than there's any need to be

Don't be too honest

Down in her heart, loves to be mastered

Duplicity, for which she might never have to ask forgiveness

Each of us will prove himself a fool given perfect opportunity

Egotism with which all are diseased

Egregious egotism of young love there are only two identities

Engrossed more, it seemed, in the malady than in the man

Enjoy his own generosity

Even bad company's better than no company at all

Every true woman is a mother,... Continue reading book >>
