Jean Giraudoux quotes (21)

A golf course is the epitome of all that is purely transitory in the universe; a space not to dwell in, but to get over as quickly as possible.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

Jean Giraudoux   Category:

As soon as war is declared it will be impossible to hold the poets back. Rhyme is still the most effective drum.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

Jean Giraudoux   Category:

I tell you, sir, the only safeguard of order and discipline in the modern world is a standardized worker with interchangeable parts. That would solve the entire problem of management.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

I'm not afraid of death. It's the stake one puts up in order to play the game of life.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

It's odd how people waiting for you stand out far less clearly than people you are waiting for.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

Men should only believe half of what women say. But which half?
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

One of the privileges of the great is to witness catastrophes from a terrace.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

Only the mediocre are always at their best.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
Jean Giraudoux   Category: Nature

The secret of success is sincerity.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

There are no elements so diverse that they cannot be joined in the heart of a man.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

There is an invisible garment woven around us from our earliest years; it is made of the way we eat, the way we walk, the way we greet people.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

There is no better way of exercising the imagination than the study of law. No poet ever interpreted nature as freely as a lawyer interprets the truth.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

Those who weep recover more quickly than those who smile.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

We all know here that the law is the most powerful of schools for the imagination. No poet ever interpreted nature as freely as a lawyer interprets the truth.
Jean Giraudoux   Category:

When you see a woman who can go nowhere without a staff of admirers, it is not so much because they think she is beautiful, it is because she has told them they are handsome.
