Zitate Morris L. West

„O Mother of Christ, who saw what men could do to one who heard an alien music!“

—  Morris West
The Heretic (1968), Context: O Mother of Christ, who saw what men could do to one who heard an alien music! Bend to me, be tender. I am blind and deaf and dumb. And yet I do see visions, shout a kind of praise, feel in my pulse apocalyptic drums.

„Once you accept the existence of God — however you define him, however you explain your relationship to him — then you are caught forever with his presence in the center of all things.“

—  Morris West
The Clowns of God (1981), Context: Once you accept the existence of God — however you define him, however you explain your relationship to him — then you are caught forever with his presence in the center of all things. You are also caught with the fact that man is a creature who walks in two worlds and traces upon the walls of his cave the wonders and the nightmare experiences of his spiritual pilgrimage. Author's Note (at the beginning of the novel) <!-- p. 9 -->

„No man — prince, peasant, pope, — has all the light, who says else is a mountebank. I claim no private lien on truth, only a liberty to seek it, prove it in debate, and to be wrong a thousand times to reach a single rightness.“

—  Morris West
The Heretic (1968), Context: No man — prince, peasant, pope, — has all the light, who says else is a mountebank. I claim no private lien on truth, only a liberty to seek it, prove it in debate, and to be wrong a thousand times to reach a single rightness. It is that liberty they fear. They want us to be driven to God like sheep, not running to him like lovers, shouting joy!

„I say you have no right to make terms for my life. I tell you then — No! I will not recant.“

—  Morris West
The Heretic (1968), Context: Who said to me, a foetus in the womb, a puling babe, "You have your life, but on the condition that you thus believe?" No one! Not even God! So gentlemen, I say you have no right to make terms for my life. I tell you then — No! I will not recant.

„If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you'll never enjoy the sunshine.“

—  Morris West
The Clowns of God (1981), Context: "Forbear to ask what tomorrow may bring" … If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you'll never enjoy the sunshine. Ch. II (ellipses in original) <!-- p. 35 --> This statement begins with a quotation from Horace, Odes, Book I, Ode ix, line 13.
