Helen Ashton

  • Half my patients would dig their graves with their teeth if they were left alone.

  • A serious, simple person, of little humour and slow to accept unfamiliar aspects of any problem, she liked humanity to fit into pigeonholes; and her charity was most generous toward those types of distress to which she was already accustomed. A certain lack of resilience in her mind would always prejudice her again the unknown.

Helen Ashton, English novelist, biographer, physician

(1891 - 1958)
