Iris Murdoch Quotations

-Writing is like getting married. One should never commit oneself until one is amazed at one’s luck.

-A good man often appears gauche simply because he does not take advantage of the myriad mean little chances of making himself look stylish. Preferring truth to form, he is not constantly at work upon the façade of his appearance.

-Love is the difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.
Iris Murdoch
