D. H. Lawrence
Psychoanalysis is out, under a therapeutic disguise, to do away entirely with the moral faculty in man.
Sex and beauty are inseparable, like life and consciousness. And the intelligence which goes with sex and beauty, and arises out of sex and beauty, is intuition.
The world of men is dreaming, it has gone mad in its sleep, and a snake is strangling it, but it can't wake up.
Ethics and equity and the principles of justice do not change with the calendar.
Tragedy is like strong acid — it dissolves away all but the very gold of truth.

Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration.
The fairest thing in nature, a flower, still has its roots in earth and manure.
D. H. Lawrence — quotes and aphorisms

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
