Naomi Royde-Smith

  • I know two things about the horse / And one of them is rather coarse.

    • Naomi Royde-Smith,
    • "The Horse," in The Weekend Book ()
  • ... love was a great disturbance.

  • She had committed a great sin and it had brought her into tune with the innermost revelation of the truth these people around her believed they worshipped.

  • She had come to her bridge, and, though it was broken so that she was here again where it started, she had followed it out into the stream and knew what was on the further shore.

  • It was on Good Friday that Miss Bendix lost her faith. She had really lost it before then, but, as is often the case with losses, she did not notice that anything was missing for some time after it had gone.

Naomi Royde-Smith, English writer
