Helen Simonson

  • Life does often get in the way of one's reading.

  • I think we wake up every day with high intentions and by dusk we have routinely fallen short. Sometimes I think God created the darkness just so he didn't have to look at us all the time.

  • America wielded her huge power in the world with a brash confidence that reminded him of a toddler who has got hold of a hammer.

  • Humiliation is the sport of the petty.

Helen Simonson, English-born U.S. writer

(1930)
