Marie Van Vorst
“Of course, if there should be war, it wouldn't last long — not in the twentieth century; and no one wants it. There would be, perhaps, a few skirmishes on the frontiers, and then everything would be arranged diplomatically.”
“More and more, I am beginning to understand why every one who has ever accomplished anything really great and truly beautiful in the past has come to Italy — have lived here and stayed here until some of its imprint has enriched their souls.”
“The more I see of Italy, the more I adore the Italians. They have so much heart, so much cheerfulness and gaiety, so much good humor. And the way they sing! Every now and then, when a silence falls in the streets, it is broken by some sudden singing voice, with a mellowness and a sweetness that makes you thrill.”
Marie Van Vorst, U.S. writer, socialite
(1867 - 1936)
Later, Countess Cagrati.
