Ella Winter

  • Choose well: your choice is brief and yet endless.

  • Don't you know you can't go home again?

    • Ella Winter,
    • to Thomas Wolfe who asked to use the expression as a book title (1937), And Not to Yield ()
  • ... was revolution much more than one fast kick forward in the long process called evolution? We condemened the 'cost' of revolution; but was it higher than the cost over centuries in backward, underdeveloped communities, which still covered two-thirds of the earth and which still could not guarantee their populations daily bread?

  • ... even if I do not see the fruits, the struggle has been worthwhile. If my life has taught me anything, it is that one must fight.

Ella Winter, Australian-born English writer

(1898 - 1980)
