Жорж Бернанос — французский писатель, участник Первой мировой войны. Будучи римским католиком и монархистом, он выступал рьяным противником буржуазного мышления, которое, по его мнению, привело к падению Франции в 1940 году.

„Ребенку для забавы достаточно грошовой куклы, тогда как старику сводит рот зевотой перед пятисотфранковой игрушкой. Почему? Потому, что он утратил дух детства.“

„Ад — это когда уже не можешь любить.“

„Не забывайте никогда того, что этот безобразный мир держится еще только благодаря сладостному миру поэтов и детей.“

„Suicide only really frightens those who are never tempted by it and never will be, for its darkness only welcomes those who are predestined to it.“ Mouchette

„A thought which does not result in an action is nothing much, and an action which does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all.“

„God! how is it that we fail to recognize that the mask of pleasure, stripped of all hypocrisy, is that of anguish?“ The Diary of a Country Priest

„It is one of the most mysterious penalties of men that they should be forced to confide the most precious of their possessions to things so unstable and ever changing, alas, as.“ The Diary of a Country Priest

„The wish to pray is a prayer in itself.“ The Diary of a Country Priest

„But I shall give less thought to the future, I shall work in the present. I feel such work is within my power. For I only succeed in small things, and when I am tried by anxiety, I am bound to say it is the small joys that release me.“ The Diary of a Country Priest

„When writing of oneself one should show no mercy. Yet why at the first attempt to discover one's own truth does all inner strength seem to melt away in floods of self-pity and tenderness and rising tears...“ The Diary of a Country Priest

„Our habits are our friends. Even our bad habits.“ The Diary of a Country Priest

„And now she was thinking of her own death, with her heart gripped not by fear but by the excitement of a great discovery, the feeling that she was about to learn what she had been unable to learn from her brief experience of love. What she thought about death was childish, but what could never have touched her in the past now filled her with poignant tenderness, as sometimes a familiar face we see suddenly with the eyes of love makes us aware that it has been dearer to us than life itself for longer than we have ever realized.“ Mouchette

„Do you think chance is really just the logic of God?“

„How easy it is to hate oneself! True grace is to forget. Yet if pride could die in us, the supreme grace would be to love oneself in all simplicity—as one would love any one of those who themselves have suffered and loved in Christ.“

„Void fascinates those who daren't look into it. They throw themselves in, for fear of falling.“ The Diary of a Country Priest

„Satan is too hard a master. He would never command as did the Other with divine simplicity: 'Do likewise.' The devil will have no victims resemble him. He permits only a rough caricature, impotent, abject, which has to serve as food for eternal irony, the mordant irony of the depths.“ The Diary of a Country Priest
