Quotations by Lucas, F. L.


[C]ommunication [can be] more difficult than we may think. We are all serving life sentences of solitary confinement within our bodies; like prisoners, we have, as it were, to tap in awkward code to our fellow men in their neighboring cells.

F. L. Lucas (1894-1967) British literary writer, editor, poet [Frank Laurence Lucas]

More quotes by Lucas, F. L.

Ingenious fools too clever to be wise, though brilliant at inventing the most ingenious reasons for their fatuous beliefs. But, tiresome as intellectuals can be, even they are probably much less menacing and pernicious to the world than anti-intellectuals.
