Edna Brush Perkins
“But walls have an engrossing quality. If there are many of them they assert themselves and domineer. They insist on the unique importance of the contents of walls and would have you believe that the spaces above them, the slow procession of the seasons and the alternations of sunshine and rain, are accessories, pleasant or unpleasant, of walls, — indeed that they were made, and a bungling job, too, and to be disregarded as a bungling job should be, solely that walls might exist.”
Edna Brush Perkins, U.S. writer
(1880 - 1930)
