Paula Gosling

  • Failure is no shame — but not making the attempt is despicable.

  • Sometimes, you know, you have to cause trouble to end trouble.

  • Having things taken away from you is not the same as giving them away.

  • There are two kinds of books in this world. One improves the mind, the other the bank balance. Sometimes they're the same — but not often. Most publishers find combining the two is the only way to stay afloat.

  • At home they shared the chores of living as some couples do — she did most of the work and he appreciated it.

Paula Gosling, U.S.-born English writer

(1939)
