Famous quotes containing the words georges bernanos, bernanos and/or georges:

    I know the compassion of others is a relief at first. I don’t despise it. But it can’t quench pain, it slips through your soul as through a sieve. And when our suffering has been dragged from one pity to another, as from one mouth to another, we can no longer respect or love it.
    Georges Bernanos (1888–1948)

    It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
    —Georges Bernanos (1888–1948)

    At anchor she rides the sunny sod,
    As full to the gunnel of flowers growing
    As ever she turned her home with cod
    From Georges Bank when winds were blowing.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
