Here are the top most famous quotes by Richard Le Gallienne.

  • It is curious how, from time immemorial, man seems to have associated the idea of evil with beauty, shrunk from it with a sort of ghostly fear, while, at the same time drawn to it by force of its hypnotic attraction.
  • The beauty we love is very silent. It smiles softly to itself, but never speaks.
  • We also maintain - again with perfect truth - that mystery is more than half of beauty, the element of strangeness that stirs the senses through the imagination.
  • There is something mean in human nature that prefers to think evil, that gives a willing ear and a ready welcome to calumny, a sort of jealousy of goodness and greatness and things of good report.
  • All religions have periods in their history which are looked back to with retrospective fear and trembling as eras of persecution, and each religion has its own book of martyrs.
  • The spiritual element, the really important part of religion, has no concern with Time and Space, temporary mundane laws, or conduct.
  • Modern science, then, so far from being an enemy of romance, is seen on every hand to be its sympathetic and resourceful friend, its swift and irresistible helper in its serious need, and an indulgent minister to its lighter fancies.
  • A wholesome oblivion of one's neighbours is the beginning of wisdom.
