Margaret Parton

  • Smells brought back the earliest memories. Floods of soft and helpless nostalgia for childhood would pour over me when the sea winds carried the sharp smell of sagebrush, the herbal smell of yellow sand verbena, the salty odor of the drying whips of seaweed along the tide line, their bulbous tips squeezed open by a child's playful toe.

  • I do not know who the hellcats are who run employment agencies, but I am sure that they came from the womb spitting and clawing. ... I had walked into their offices in New York and crawled out under the door.

Margaret Parton, U.S. journalist, writer

(1915 - 1981)
