Mary Daheim

  • Single mothers, married mothers, even stepmothers are basically a patient lot. They have to be or they would devour their offspring early on, like guppies.

  • Really, Emma, you're like so many Americans — if the French baked a gopher and stuck sprigs of parsley in its ears, you'd think it was delicious.

  • ... as Vida is wont to say: Men aren't like other people.

  • When you're doing drugs, today is yesterday, tomorrow never comes.

Mary Daheim, U.S. writer

(1937)

Full name: Mary Rene Daheim.
