Quotes of the day for Friday!

Thank Goodness it’s Friday! Although with the snow at the beginning of the week, it somehow doesn’t feel like Friday. At any rate, I chose a couple of quotes from one of my favorite authors, Graham Greene. Hope you enjoy them!


“A story has no beginning or end: arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead.”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

“Pain is easy to write. In pain we’re all happily individual. But what can one write about happiness?”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

“You needn’t be so scared. Love doesn’t end. Just because we don’t see each other…”
Graham Greene, The End of the Affair

Henry Graham Greene, OM, CH was an English novelist, short story writer, playwright, screenplay writer, travel writer and critic whose works explore the ambivalent moral and political issues of the modern world. Greene combined serious literary acclaim with wide popularity.

Although Greene objected strongly to being described as a “Catholic novelist” rather than as a “novelist who happened to be Catholic,” Catholic religious themes are at the root of much of his writing, especially the four major Catholic novels: Brighton Rock, The Heart of the Matter, The End of the Affair, and The Power and the Glory. Works such as The Quiet American, Our Man in Havana and The Human Factor also show an avid interest in the workings of international politics and espionage.

I’m sure as you can tell that The End of the Affair is my favorite Greene novel. I do love his other works but this one is quasi autobiographical and strikes a cord straight from the heart.
Make it a Great Day!
