Dolores Hitchens

  • The pup ... was a bundle of fat and fur and undecided impulses.

  • Gray hair, glasses, and an expression that made Sader suspect her husband gambled or drank, and that she forgave him for it.

  • Down through the years certain fads of slang had come and gone, and their vestiges could be found in Janie's and Mabel's conversation, like mastodon bones in a swamp.

  • If you're going to generalize about women, you'll find yourself up to here in exceptions.

  • Jealousy had a taste, all right. A bitter and tongue-stinging flavor, like a peach pit.

Dolores Hitchens, U.S. writer

(1907 - 1973)
