#1044 To forgive all

-Sometimes, I feel the past and the future pressing so hard on either side that there's no room for the present at all.

-An artist must be a reactionary. He has to stand out against the tenor of the age and not go flopping along.

-Art is the symbol of the two noblest human efforts: to construct and to refrain from destruction.

-I put the words down and push them a bit.

 -Words should be an intense pleasure, just as leather should be to a shoemaker.

-To understand all is to forgive all.

Quotes by Evelyn Waugh

-  How often do you feel squeezed by the past and future?
- What wonderful constructions have you enjoyed by an artist? (art, writing, craft, etc.)
- How much do you understand?  Forgive?
