Virginia Burden Tower

  • ...we are all immersed in an invisible medium to which the intuitive person relates as the swimmer relates to water. In this medium, as in the ocean, there are currents, attractions, repulsions, vortices, proper rules of displacement and many other familiar properties, although the fact may be as hidden from the knowledge of the casual observer as the properties of water are hidden from the understanding of the landlubber.

  • There are those who have discovered that fear is death in life, and have willingly risked physical death and loss of all that is considered valuable in order to live in freedom.

  • There is absolutely no pain quite so excruciating as the discovery of one's own shallowness, hypocrisy and selfishness of motive.

  • Cooperation is an intelligent functioning of the concept of laissez faire — a thorough conviction that nobody can get there unless everybody gets there.

Virginia Burden Tower, U.S. writer, educator

(1919 - 2008)
