Martha Mason

  • I lived in the moment of the now, without concern about tomorrow's pitfalls. If unpleasantness lurked there, I would drink the bitter cup only once, while worriers drink it twice.

  • The very worst thing that can happen to anyone, I am convinced, is any form of brain disease. Physical problems pilfer from the body, but mental problems are identity thieves. Intractable mental illness sucks the personality — the very soul — from human beings as tornadoes suck air from buildings, causing them to implode.

Martha Mason, U.S. writer who lived in an iron lung for most of her life

(1937 - 2009)
