Alanna Knight

  • If one drops dead in the street, friends and loved ones are shocked, stricken, but a long lingering death loses all nobility and drama, while relatives and friends await the inevitable end in a succession of weary anti-climaxes.

  • I do feel that houses have faces — and feelings too.

Alanna Knight, English-born Scottish novelist, playwright

(1930)

She also wrote as Margaret Hope.
