More From W. Somerset Maugham
- "The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant and kind."
- "Any nation that thinks more of its ease and comfort than its freedom will soon lose its freedom; and the ironical thing about it is that it will lose its ease and comfort too."
- "The artist produces for the liberation of his soul. It is his nature to create as it is the nature of water to run down the hill."
