D.H. Lawrence

1885 - 1930

A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence on experience, fear, ideas, and world

The world fears a new experience more than it fears anything. Because a new experience displaces so many old experiences. . . . The world doesn't fear a new idea. It can pigeon-hole any idea. But it can't pigeon-hole a real new experience.

A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence on art, day, speech, and truth

Art-speech is the only truth. An artist is usually a damned liar, but his art, if it be art, will tell you the truth of his day.

A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence on darkness and mountains

The near end of the street was rather dark and had mostly vegetable shops. Abundance of vegetables - piles of white and green fennel, like celery, and great sheaves of young, purplish, sea-dust-coloured artichokes . . . long strings of dried figs, mountains of big oranges, scarlet large peppers, a large slice of pumpkin, a great mass of colours and vegetable freshness. . . .

in

The peasants of Sicily, who have kept their own wheat and make their own natural brown bread, ah, it is amazing how fresh and sweet and clean their loaf seems, so perfumed, as home-made bread used all to be before the war.
