Famous Joyce Cary Quotes

Listed in: Inspirational Quotes

On Love:

Love doesn’t grow on trees like apples in Eden – it’s something you have to make. And you must use your imagination too.

Love doesn’t grow on the trees like apples in Eden. It’s something you have to make. And you must use your imagination to make it too, just like anything else.

On Life:

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.

On God:

God is a character, a real and consistent being, or He is nothing. If God did a miracle He would deny His own nature and the universe would simply blow up, vanish, become nothing.

On Religion:

Religion is organized to satisfy and guide the soul – politics does the same thing for the body.
