Committal Sayings By G.K. Chesterton: In a word, God paints in many colors; but he never paints so gorgeously, I In a word, God paints in many colors; but he never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white.

Which is not the case.
Meanwhile I could not find my chalk. — G.K. Chesterton

Committal Sayings By Doris Lessing: But it isn't only the terror everywhere, and the fear of being conscious of it, But it isn't only the terror everywhere, and the fear of being conscious of it, that freezes people. It's more than that. People know they are in a society dead or dying. They are refusing emotion because at the end of every emotion are property, money, power.

Better anything than the shrewd, the calculated, the non-committal, the refusal of giving for fear of the consequences ... — Doris Lessing

Committal Sayings By H.P. Lovecraft: After that I went to Sydney and talked profitlessly with seamen and members of the After that I went to Sydney and talked profitlessly with seamen and members of the vice-admiralty court. I saw the Alert, now sold and in commercial use, at Circular Quay in Sydney Cove, but gained nothing from its non-committal bulk. The crouching image with its cuttlefish head, dragon body, scaly wings, and hieroglyphed pedestal, was preserved in the Museum at Hyde Park; and I studied it long and well, finding it a thing of balefully exquisite workmanship, and with the same utter mystery, terrible antiquity, and unearthly strangeness of material which I had noted in Legrasse's smaller specimen. Geologists, — H.P. Lovecraft
