Popular Quotes

“May I deal with honour
May I act with courage
May I achieve humility”
― Dick Francis, Straight

 “How could people, I wondered for the ten thousandth useless time, how could people who had loved so dearly come to such a wilderness; and yet the change in us was irreversible, and neither of us would even search for a way back. It was impossible. The fire was out. Only a few live coals lurked in the ashes, searing unexpectedly at the incautious touch.”
― Dick Francis, Whip Hand

“Life has a way of kicking one along like a football, or so I’ve found. Fate had never dealt me personally a particularly easy time, but that was OK, that was normal. Most people, it seemed to me, took their turn to be football. Most survived. Some didn’t.”
― Dick Francis, Straight

 “I’d always found goodness more interesting then evil, though I was aware this wasn’t the most general view. To my mind, it took more work and more courage to be good, an opinion continually reinforced by my own shortcomings.”
― Dick Francis, Comeback

 “Love’s easy to learn. It’s like taking a risk. You set your mind on it and refuse to be afraid, and in no time you feel terrifically exhilarated and all your inhibitions fly out of the window.”
― Dick Francis, Dead Cert

 “I guessed life was like that. You gained and you lost, and if you saved anything from the ruins, even if only a shred of self-respect, it was enough to take you through the next bit.”
― Dick Francis, Whip Hand

“But what do you say if you’re asked a direct question and you can’t tell the truth and you can’t tell a lie?’
You say “how very interesting” and change the subject.”
― Dick Francis, 10 lb Penalty

 “Logic doesn’t stop you feeling. You can behave logically and it can hurt like hell. Or it can comfort you. Or release you. Or all at the same time”
― Dick Francis, The Danger

“Some are born weird, some achieve it, others have weirdness thrust upon them.”
― Dick Francis, To the Hilt

“But one discarded dreams and got dressed, and made what one could of the day.”
― Dick Francis, Whip Hand

One Final Bonus – Dick Francis Quote 

“Most people think, when they’re young, that they’re going to the top of their chosen world, and that the climb up is only a formality. Without that faith, I suppose, they might never start. Somewhere on the way they lift their eyes to the summit and know they aren’t going to reach it; and happiness then is looking down and enjoying the view they’ve got, not envying the one they haven’t.”
― Dick Francis, Reflex
