Evelyn Pember

  • If she had ever really known what she wanted, perhaps she would have got it. If you didn't know, you caught at this and that, thinking, as it flashed at you, that it must be what you were looking for, and then, soberly face to face with it, knowing it for something so remote from your seeking.

  • It is such a jolly sight easier to make things ugly or stupid or absurd than it is to make them lovely or wise or relevant.

  • Most religions lay great store by repetition.
