Joseph Shearing

  • Does one ever see any ghost that is not oneself?

  • I think sometimes — do not we all? — that perhaps the present year is my last year and that all my busyness is foolish.

Joseph Shearing, English writer

(1885 - 1952)

Real name: Gabrielle Margaret Vere Cambell Long. She also wrote as Marjorie Bowen (see under that name for additional quotations).
