A Quote by Joyce Cary on experience, family, feeling, ideas, imagination, jesus, life, love, present, and truth

I had from childhood not only the experience of love and truth common to all family life, but the idea of them embodied in the person of Jesus, a picture always present to our imagination as well as our feelings.

A Quote by Joyce Cary on change, creation, creativity, evil, good, insecurity, spirit, and world

For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity.

A Quote by Joyce Cary on change, conflict, creation, creativity, danger, evil, facts, good, ideas, injustice, insecurity, inventions, life, mind, spirit, tragedy, and world

For me, the principal fact of life is the free mind. For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity. A perpetually new and lively world, but a dangerous one, full of tragedy and injustice. A world in everlasting conflict between the new idea and the old allegiances, new arts and new inventions against the old establishment.
