Edith P. Begner

  • When someone behaves unreasonably ... paradoxically there's always a reason.

  • Every human being has the right to choose his own end.

  • ... Miss Forsyth was the first to admit that she alone was blessed with a hole in her head through which all learning seeped out, like puffs of smoke.

  • There had to be a sixth sense to deep friendship, and it was only in time of trouble that one had the opportunity to perceive the rarity of what was being offered.

  • All the grandiose hopes of youth boil lower and lower with time ... but it's only the vapor that flies away; the essence is still there, increasingly rich and more savory for the absence of all that steam.

Edith P. Begner, U.S. writer

(1918 - 1989)
