J. B. Priestley

The greater part of critics are parasites, who, if nothing had been written, would find nothing to write.
J. B. Priestley

The racism, the sexism, I never let it be my problem, it's their problem. If I see a door comin' my way, I'm knockin' it down. And if I can't knock down the door, I'm sliding through the window. I'll never let it stop me from what I wanna do.
J. B. Priestley

To different minds, the same world is a hell, and a heaven.
J. B. Priestley

To show a child what once delighted you, to find the child's delight added to your own - this is happiness.
J. B. Priestley

We pay when old for the excesses of youth.
J. B. Priestley

We should like to have some towering geniuses, to reveal us to ourselves in colour and fire, but of course they would have to fit into the pattern of our society and be able to take orders from sound administrative types.
