Cleanliness is the scourge of art.

Craig Brown

As a rough rule of thumb, I would say the smaller the pond, the more belligerent the fish.

Craig Brown

Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

It is hard being a football loather, a football unfan. I sometimes feel as lonely as the sole survivor in the last reel of a Zombie film, as, one by one, old friends reveal themselves, with their glassy stares and outstretched arms, to have succumbed to the lure.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

People think of waves as going in an orderly crash - whoosh - crash - whoosh, but in fact there are lots of different crashes and whooshes, all at different stages, and all going off at the same time.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

My life is a monument to procrastination, to the art of putting things off until later, or much later, or possibly never.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Some people see life as a game of chess, while others prefer to see it as a game of cricket; but the longer I live, the more I think of it as a game of Consequences.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

There's nothing wrong with procrastination. Or is there? I'll leave it to you to decide, but only if you have the time.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

It is only if you happen to be a newscaster that the tongue-twister spells peril.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

As life goes on, we accrue more and more loseable objects. Providence dictates that objects that are too large to lose, such as houses, always come with tiny little keys, specially designed to give you the slip.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Somewhere in the back of their minds, hosts and guests alike know that the dinner party is a source of untold irritation, and that even the dullest evening spent watching television is preferable.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Like the periwig and the bowler hat, the plus-four and the bow-tie, the blazer is on the way out, and those who persist in wearing it do so with a smattering of self-consciousness, a touch of obstinacy, even a pinch of camp.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

All the wealthiest people in the U.S. seem compelled to brag about how humble they are.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Andrew Lloyd Webber is one of those odd moth-like creatures who seem to combine extreme discomfort with the spotlight with an unstoppable compulsion to leap into it.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Traditionally, wake-up calls are meant to wake you up rather than send you to sleep: the clue is in the wording. But those who talk of wake-up calls tend to have an easy-going way with words.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Comedy is the slave of time. What seemed funny then is unlikely to seem funny now, just as what strikes us as funny now would not have seemed funny then.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Like many men who play tennis, when I hit a ball into the net, I tend to look daggers at my racket, reproaching it for playing so badly when I myself have been trying so hard.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

One of the many joys of tongue-twisters is that they serve no purpose beyond fun.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

My father, a captain in the 5th Battalion of the Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders, landed in Normandy the day after D-Day.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

There are few things quite so effortlessly enjoyable as watching an eminent person getting in a huff and flouncing out of a television interview, often with microphone trailing.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

The only behaviour that is truly common is to avoid doing something because you think others might consider it common.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Over the years, the idea seems to have grown up that brightly coloured flowers are vulgar, and that the only flowers to be admitted to the walled garden of good taste are discreet and pastel-hued.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Tweeting is the go-to medium for the show-off and the shyster.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

I have twice met Jeffrey Archer, and on both occasions was struck by the firmness of his handshake - and the way he looked me straight in the eye, too.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

For some reason, it is always thrilling to spot your home town in the news.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

When I was a boy, I used to stay with a school friend in Bexhill, in Sussex, which was then well-known for being the town with more oldies than any other. Aged ten, I felt slightly embarrassed by this, though I'm not sure why.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

The first sign builders are on their way is when - hey, presto! - a skip appears outside your house.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Just as there is something about an empty skip that makes you want to fill it, so there is something about a full skip that makes you want to empty it.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

In real life, nothing would be more tedious than trailing around after two strangers as they went house-hunting in Hertfordshire. But for some reason, television is more compelling than real life.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Poets, for example, are generally considered starry-eyed and sensitive, but only by those who have never encountered one.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

You might think that religion was the one area in which professional jealousy would take a back seat. But no: ecclesiastical memoirs are as viperish as any, though their envy tends to cloak itself in piety.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Historians are the consummate hairdressers of the literary world: cooing in public, catty in private.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

More and more, I find that the news reads like a particularly random game of Consequences.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

One of the tricks of life is to have sense and money in roughly equal proportions.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

More often than not, theatre critics bubble with enthusiasm about plays that are, when all is said and done, really pretty average.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

The best critics do not worry about what the author might think. That would be like a detective worrying about what a suspect might think. Instead, they treat the reader as an intelligent friend, and describe the book as honestly, and as entertainingly, as possible.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Whenever television cameras are interviewing people in their homes, I tend to look over their shoulders and have a good snoop at their living rooms. I am always astonished at how clean they all look, with nothing out of place or unnecessary or dropped down any old how.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Some of the most untidy writers have also been the most productive. Iris Murdoch, for instance, wrote a good 30 books in a house strewn with rubbish.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

The news is increasingly full of mismatched people saying daft things to one another.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

A decent beard has long been the number one must-have fashion item for any fugitive from justice.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

The British love of queuing and discomfort and being bossed around seems to have found a new outlet in the pop festival.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

When cars honk and hoot and drunks squeeze out of car windows and scream, you can be sure that football is in the air.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

How I hate the Beautiful Game! I hate its cry-baby players and its gruff, joyless managers, its blokish supporters and its sinister owners, its whistle-peeping referees and its chippy little linesmen, its excitable commentators and - perhaps most of all - its unpluggable 'analysts.'

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Like Christians, Soccerians argue that you should not judge the essence of their faith by the loopy activities of its followers. But the Beautiful Game is in fact quite the opposite. It is badly designed and riddled with flaws.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Personally, I belong to the speedy school of golf. If it were left up to me, I would introduce a new rule that said every golf ball has to stay in motion from the moment it leaves the tee to the moment it plops into the hole, thus obliging each player to run along after his ball and give it another whack before it stops rolling.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

It strikes me that golf's great virtue is that it gets you out of the house, away from everyday bothers, away from the endless round of looking for this, that and the other.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Looking back, some of the happiest moments of my childhood were spent with my arm in packets of breakfast cereal, rootling around for a free gift.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Children are perfectly happy to sit next to spiders; it is only grown-ups who are frightened away.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Alan Whicker may be the last Briton to have worn a silver-buttoned blazer with complete confidence.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

In its heyday, the blazer had come to symbolise a kind of conventional decency. Yacht club commodores and school bursars wore blazers. People who played bowls wore blazers.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Like the firm handshake and looking people straight in the eye, the blazer had originally been a symbol of trust. Because of this, it had been purloined by the less-than-trustworthy and became their preferred disguise.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

The first thing I hear when I wake up is the sea, which is so close to our house that its reflections from the sun dapple our bedroom ceiling.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Many people see the chance to eat something for nothing, without the need to cook or wash up, as the great consolation of going out to dinner. But they forget quite how difficult it is to talk to a stranger and eat at the same time.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

By and large, the artistic establishment disapproved of Margaret Thatcher.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Speaking for myself, I spend a good ten minutes a day deciding whether or not to read the results of new surveys, and, once I have read them, a further five minutes deciding whether or not to take them seriously.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Everyone must know by now that the aim of Scrabble is to gain the moral high ground, the loser being the first player to slam the board shut and upset all the letters over the floor.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Monopoly may also end in tears, but its tensions are cruder, lacking the infinitely subtle shadings of irritation and acrimony provided by Scrabble.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

Often, I grow irritated before the first tile has been placed on the Scrabble board. This generally occurs when one of my opponents has insisted upon bringing a dictionary to the table, making it clear that he will be consulting it throughout the game.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

When I was young, I used to expect Parisians to wear little black berets, to bicycle about with strings of onions around their necks, and to brandish long sticks of bread, just like they used to do in school textbooks.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

When I tell people I don't own a mobile phone and wouldn't know how to text, they react as though I have just confessed that I can't read.

Craig Brown


Free Status Quote By - Craig Brown

What would we do without plaques to tell us who lived where and when? They introduce the past into the present, and are the quickest and most interesting way of reminding us that our streets exist above and beyond the here-and-now.

Craig Brown
