Clare Curzon

  • ... people's desires are in proportion to their lifestyle ... Houses can lie as easily as humans.

  • No, it doesn't do to continue yanking on the umbilical cord once the child is on its own two feet. All the time they're growing up, you have to keep taking one more step backwards, leaving them room to expand.

Clare Curzon, English writer

(1922 - 2010)

Real name: Eileen-Marie Duell Buchanan. In addition to Clare Curzon, pseudonyms included Marie Duell and Rhona Petrie.
