Helen Yglesias

  • Near or far, there are burdens and terrors in sisterhood, and perhaps the nearer, the more complicated.

  • Nobody knows the trouble you've seen — and nobody wants to.

  • Life disappoints. Everybody knows that. But must it horrify?

  • The geography of love is pornographic; its climate is much improved by money; when love comes it comes without effort, like perfect weather.

  • You think I know what I'm talking about? If it works I'm a genius. If it doesn't I blame it on the market, the falling dollar, Washington jitters, the weather, anything I can think of.

Helen Yglesias, U.S. writer

(1915 - 2008)

Full name: Helen Bassine Yglesias.
