Maysie Greig

  • Despite what the feminists say, it is natural for a woman to want to lean on a man.

  • You've never thought much of him so of course he isn't any good! Nobody is any good if you don't think much of them.

  • Was this, in the last analysis, how every man really wanted his woman — dependent on his strength, lost without his guidance?

  • He shared the pathetic belief of most of his fellow men that a change of scene can cure a broken heart.

  • When we are young, we bolster ourselves up with illusions, and when those illusions fail us, we have nothing to put in their place, nothing but the feeling that life must be got through somehow. Pleasures, hectic pleasures, act as a drug.

  • Women may not think much about it before marriage, but kindness is one of the greatest assets in a husband.

  • How few men responded adequately to the love a woman was capable of giving them!

  • Love, which is such a tragic emotion to those who are suffering from it, always seems faintly comic to everyone else.

  • It's queer, isn't it, how we hate people most whom we have wronged? Far more than we hate those people who have wronged us.

  • ... whoever stage-manages this living business certain has a sense of humor.

  • Marriage always does interfere with your friendships — with someone else.

  • Dead love is a ghost ... and a damnably dangerous ghost because it takes some of us a long time to realize that it is only a ghost.
