Antonia White

  • ... she was one of those children who cannot help behaving well.

  • Catholicism isn't a religion, it's a nationality.

  • It's only a dogma that hells exists; it isn't a dogma that there's anybody in it.

  • Another world, / Its walls are thin, / But, oh, I cannot / Enter in. / I feel its touch, / I breathe its air, / How long before / I enter there?

    • Antonia White,
    • "The Key," Strangers ()

Antonia White, English writer, diarist
