Christopher Fry quotes

Christopher Fry
Coffee in England is just toasted milk.

Christopher Fry
The human heart can go to the lengths of God. Dark and cold we may be, but this Is no winter now. The frozen misery Of centuries breaks, cracks, begins to move The thunder is the thunder of the floes, The thaw, the flood, the upstart Spring. Thank God our time is now when wrong Comes up to face us everywhere, Never to leave us till we take The longest stride of soul we humans ever took. Affairs are now soul size. The enterprise Is exploration into God. Where are you making for? It takes So many thousand years to wake, But will you wake for pity

Christopher Fry

Christopher Fry
What, after all, is a halo? It's only one more thing to keep clean.

Christopher Fry
Between Our birth and death we may touch understanding As a moth brushes a window with its wing.

Christopher Fry
Poetry is the language in which man explores his own amazement... says heaven and earth in one word... speaks of himself and his predicament as though for the first time. It has the virtue of being able to say twice as much as prose in half the time, and the drawback, if you do not give it your full attention, of seeming to say half as much in twice the time.

Christopher Fry
