Florinda Donner

  • Freedom will cost you the mask you have on, the mask that feels so comfortable and is so hard to shed off, not because it fits so well but because you have been wearing it so long.

  • Death is your truest friend, and your most reliable adviser. If you have doubts about the course of your life, you have only to consult your death for the proper direction. Death will never lie to you.

    • Florinda Donner,
    • in Michael Brennan, "The World of Waking Dreams," The Sun ()
