Dorothea Malm

  • There is no hunger harder to bear than a hunger for what is gone.

  • ... it was not so much a change as an awakening — the awakening that comes when through a child's illusion of being a passenger on someone else's ship breaks the realization that one is all by oneself in a little boat of one's own — but that the boat can be rowed and steered somewhat in the direction, at least, of the destination one chooses.

Dorothea Malm, U.S. writer

(1915 - 2013)
