A Quote by D.H. Lawrence on anger, justice, judgment, and forgiveness

The only justice is to follow the sincere intuition of the soul, angry or gentle. Anger is just, and pity is just, but judgment is never just.

A Quote by D.H. Lawrence on ego, self-knowledge, escape, personality, and risk

When we get out of the glass bottles of our ego,
and when we escape like squirrels turning in the
cages of our personality
and get into the forests again,
we shall shiver with cold and fright
but things will happen to us
so that we don't know ourselves.

A Quote by D.H. Lawrence

My belief is in the blood and flesh as being wiser than the intellect. The body-unconscious is where life bubbles up in us. It is how we know that we are alive, alive to the depths of our soul and intouch somewhere with the vivid reaches of the cosmos.

A Quote by D.H. Lawrence

Perhaps only people who are capable of real togetherness have that look of being alone in the universe...the others have a certain stickiness.

A Quote by D.H. Lawrence

Her...eyes blazed with excitement as she turned and ran fast, with a strange charging movement, out of the clearing and down the path, the wet boughs whipping her. She ran, and he saw nothing but the...wet back leaning forward in flight, the rounded buttocks twinkling: a wonderful cowering female nakedness in flight...when he came up and flung his naked arm round her soft, naked-wet middle. She gave a shriek and straightened herself and the heap of her soft, chill flesh came up against his body. He pressed it all up against him, madly, the heap of soft, chilled female flesh that became quickly warm as flame, in contact. The rain streamed on them till they smoked. He gathered her lovely, heavy posteriors one in each hand and pressed them in towards him in a frenzy, quivering motionless in the rain. Then suddenly he tipped her up and fell with her on the path, in the roaring silence of the rain, and short and sharp, he took her, short and sharp and finished, like an animal.

A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.

A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence

It grew late. Through the open door, stealthily, came the scent of madonna lilies, almost as if it were prowling abroad.
