D. H. Lawrence Quote: Gods should be iridescent, like the rainbow in the storm. Man creates a God in his own image, and the gods grow old along with the men that made them... But the god-stuff roars eternally, like the sea, with too vast a sound to be heard.

Quotes about D. H. Lawrence: Art- speech is the only truth. An artist is usually a damned liar but his art, if it be art, will tell you the truth of his day and that is all that matters. Away with eternal truth. The truth lives from day to day, and the marvelous Plato of yesterday is chiefly bosh today.

D. H. Lawrence Sayings: It is marriage, perhaps, which had given man the best of his freedom, given him his little kingdom of his own within the big kingdom of the state....
