11 Violence Quotes from Literature

It is not violence that best overcomes hate-nor vengeance that most certainly heals injury. ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte "Moderate strength is shown in violence, supreme strength is shown in levity." ~ The Man Who Was Thursday by G. K. Chesterton "Every shot that kills ricochets." ~ Romany of the Snows by Gilbert Parker "Violence does, in truth, recoil upon the violent, and the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another." ~ The Adventure of the Speckled Band by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Indeed, it may be laid down as a general principle, that the more extended the ancestry, the greater the amount of violence and vagabondism; for in ancient days those two amusements, combining a wholesome excitement with a promising means of repairing shattered fortunes, were at once the ennobling pursuit and the healthful recreation of the Quality of this land. ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens Between these two there lay a broad zone comprising all the centre of the country which was a land of blood and violence, where no law prevailed save that of the sword. ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle My instincts are all against a woman being too frank and at her ease with me. It is no compliment to a man. Where the real sex feeling begins, timidity and distrust are its companions, heritage from old wicked days when love and violence went often hand in hand. ~ The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone. The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence in Grosvenor Square." ~ The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde "Treachery and violence are spears pointed at both ends; they wound those who resort to them worse than their enemies." ~ Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte To all the world he was the man of violence, half animal and half demon; but to her he always remained the little wilful boy of her own girlhood, the child who had clung to her hand. Evil indeed is the man who has not one woman to mourn him. ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
