Blanche H. Dow
“November has a way of her own. Crisp air, swaying Spanish needles, echo of honking geese held in memory from the night, motors passing on the radio. ... To take to the road, that would be the thing.”
“Unless the knowledge gained from experience is reconditioned in each new situation, it is a rigid and a dangerous guide.”
“The past is the tense of memory and art and wisdom.”
“In art the past particular transmutes itself into the present universal.”
Blanche H. Dow, U.S. writer, educator
(1893 - 1973)
