M.V. Heberden

  • The less explaining you do the less people speculate.

  • God preserve me from idiots and men in love, which is the same thing.

  • Gloria quite ignored the news pages of the Herald. She made straight for the center, the hatched, matched, dispatched page.

  • The curious vacuum in which one exists during a voyage, in which one set of problems has been left behind and the need has not yet arisen to grapple with a new set, was over.

  • One seldom loves people for their virtues.

M.V. Heberden, U.S. writer

(1906 - 1965)
