Dorothy Cannell

  • Punctuality comes high on my list of unforgivable sins.

  • Once arrived in that city of fabulous antiquity and sunshine, I settled into a small but charming hotel where the view was excellent and every meal a sonnet.

  • To me thin people never had any meaningful problems.

  • ... rain began to beat at the narrow lattice windows in the stop-and-start manner of an untalented child practicing scales at the piano.

Dorothy Cannell, English-born U.S. writer

(1943)
