Famous quotes containing the word maugham:

    The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic, and self- complacent is erroneous; on the contrary, it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant, and kind. Failure makes people cruel and bitter.
    —W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1966)
