Somerset Maugham's thoughtful quotes about life

One day Somerset Maugham said that people used to think he was a humorist. The problem was, the writer was telling the truth in his novels but a wider public thought it was a joke.

Below there are thoughts of Somerset Maugham from his novels "Theatre", "Sixpence and The Moon", "The Razor's Edge", "Of human bondage".

His expressions are merciless and really smart and that's because it's truly what human nature is about.
