Maureen Daly

  • It is odd how one can feel like someone else early in the morning — bigger, cleaner, so much more alive.

  • Talking about your home town is like talking about your own mother.

  • Growing up crowds your mind with new thoughts and new feelings so that you forget how you used to think and feel.

  • Growing up is like taking down the sides of your house and letting strangers walk in.

  • It was so quiet that all my thoughts seemed to have a yawn in them.

Maureen Daly, U.S. writer

(1921 - 2006)
