Mabel Dodge Luhan
“... the strongest, surest way to the soul is through the flesh.”
“We do not know people by experience; experience through the passing of time merely ratifies the first full realization we have received entire.”
“... the least that we are appears, actually, in the flesh, and the truth lies behind bone and muscle.”
“How ruthless we are when we live on the surface of life!”
“It seemed to me then that there was no single stable element in the universe, either outside or inside my own brain. That was possibly the instant that I recognized once for all the immutable truth that actually there is nothing except what one creates for oneself.”
“I have always been myself and at the same time someone else; always able to be the other person, feel with him, think his thoughts, see from the angle in which he has found himself. It is the only genius that I have ever had, but it has been enough.”
“All my life I have been overcoming my fears and knocking at closed doors. And it has always seemed worth the effort.”
“Books sent my clamorous spirit into another world. They have been accumulating and passing through my hands ever since.”
“The thing I discovered quite soon was that the hours took care of each other, and if one lived wholly and well at present the future could truly be left to itself.”
