Virginia Moore

  • ... the spring air is soft as pin feathers ...

  • Virginia reeks of tobacco. Its odor saturates her like the coat of a veteran smoker. The brown stain of tobacco juice is on every page of her history.

  • Air is a much kinder magician than fire, altering without destroying.

  • Unhappiness often leads to religion ...

  • ... true self-respect, being very different from false pride, leads inevitably to respecting others ...

  • It ought to be possible for individuals to become spiritually rich, to grow profound in their souls, without suffering, but ordinarily they do not, and I think it is so with countries.

  • Fortunately, there is excess in greatness; it can lose more than mediocrity possesses, and still be great.

  • A poet is a state of mind.

  • How close are religion and art? Both cry for spiritual beauty, and both must learn to be humble, to forget self, in order to reflect clearly, like a mirror unblemished by a particle of dust.

  • An artist has the right to be judged by her best work.

Virginia Moore, U.S. writer

(1903 - 1993)
