Vita Dutton Scudder

  • Reality, like beauty, is in relationship and there only.

  • ... the suppression of war is not the equivalent of peace.

  • ... war to win peace is at best a dangerously illogical method.

  • Luxury, like a minimum wage, is a relationship; it changes as we change.

  • Creation is a better means of self-expression than possession; it is through creating, not possessing, that life is revealed.

  • The worst danger of the mystic is as always a quest of spiritual privilege leading to aloofness from the common lot.

Vita Dutton Scudder, U.S. social reformer, English literature scholar, writer, educator

(1861 - 1954)
