William Somerset Maugham(1874.1.25~1965.12.16)享年91歳



“The great tragedy of life is not that men perish, but that they cease to love”

“The love that lasts the longest is the love that is never returned”

“What makes old age hard to bear is not the failing of one’s faculties, mental and physical, but the burden of one’s memories”

“It is an illusion that youth is happy, an illusion of those who have lost it”

“life was too short to do anything for myself that I could pay others to do for me”
