Mildred Davis

  • ... tragedy had its compensations. Once the worst misfortune occurred, one never worried about the minor ones.

  • The best course was to buy a house across a road from a cemetery and look at it every morning. Reminding yourself where it all ended anyway, you'd never get upset about anything again.

  • ... she leaned toward me the way people do when they want an idea to penetrate your resistance. As though the closer they get their own brain to your brain, the easier it will be for the idea to leap across.

Mildred Davis, U.S. writer

(1930)
