Grace S. Richmond

  • When in doubt, always start a new paragraph.

  • Cynicism's always a pose — always.

  • If one isn't parsimonious before Christmas one can't be munificent when it arrives.

  • ... Red's temper is like the dynamite that blasts out the rocks — the hole it makes is almost always a hole that is going to be of use. A foundation can be built on it. While our tempers blow up bridges that were needed, and the excavations we make are like shellholes.

  • ... the creative mind is as delicately balanced as the needle trembling in a compass; the presence of antagonistic metal deflects it instantly.

Grace S. Richmond, U.S. novelist

(1866 - 1959)
