Eleanor Dark

  • ... he was, conversationally, a born elephant.

  • ... there was no crime like the crime of stagnation — unproductiveness. With a creative trinity, mind, body and spirit, one must yield something back to the generous earth.

  • Could she conceive an environment which had never allowed one to forget guilt? In which, if one were not actually guilty of anything at the moment the chances were that one would be shortly?

  • A democracy without faith is just a machine without power. Nothing can make it function except faith in itself, in the ordinary man and woman.

  • ... the final judge was truth — immortal.

  • Hatred was a plant of slow growth ...

  • ... one ingredient of revenge is always pride.

Eleanor Dark, Australian writer

(1901 - 1985)
