Ruth Wolff

  • The needle of our conscience is as good a compass as any.

  • Spring is shoving up the front windows and resting your elbows on the sill, the sun burning your nose a little.

  • Nobody in our family is smitten with ambition. Daddy is smitten with religion, Mama is smitten with love for her family, Kevy is smitten with Ronnie, Arlie is smitten with shame, and I love to sing.

  • People always remember the tune they fell in love to.

Ruth Wolff, U.S. writer
