Famous quotes by somerset maugham:

    A man who is a politician at forty is a statesman at three score and ten. It is at this age, when he would be too old to be a clerk or a gardener or a police-court magistrate, that he is ripe to govern a country.
    —W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965)

    Tolerance is only another name for indifference.
    —W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1966)

    Habits in writing as in life are only useful if they are broken as soon as they cease to be advantageous.
    —W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965)

    We learn resignation not by our own suffering, but by the suffering of others.
    —W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965)

    Few misfortunes can befall a boy which bring worse consequences than to have a really affectionate mother.
    —W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1966)
