Graham Greene: Corrupt Sentiment

Posted by admin on Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Graham Greene Money Quote saying those willing to sell themselves for money are more predictable than those that may be swayed by emotions. Graham Greene said:
 
They had been corrupted by money, and he had been corrupted by sentiment. Sentiment was the more dangerous, because you couldn’t name its price. A man open to bribes was to be relied upon below a certain figure Quote
 

“They had been corrupted by money, and he had been corrupted by sentiment. Sentiment was the more dangerous, because you couldn’t name its price. A man open to bribes was to be relied upon below a certain figure, but sentiment might uncoil in the heart at a name, a photograph, even a smell remembered” — Graham Greene
