Vita Sackville-West

Vita Sackville-West

English writer
It is a sad moment when the first phlox appears. It is the amber light indicating the end of the great burst of early summer and suggesting that we must now start looking forward to autumn. Not that I have any objection to autumn as a season, full of its own beauty; but I just cannot bear to see another summer go, and I recoil from what the first hint of autumn means.More Vita Sackville-West quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every garden-maker should be an artist along his own lines. That is the only possible way to create a garden, irrespective of size or wealth.More Vita Sackville-West quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The true solitary ... will feel that he is himself only when he is alone; when he is in company he will feel that he perjures himself, prostitutes himself to the exactions of others; he will feel that time spent in company is time lost; he will be conscious only of his impatience to get back to his true life.More Vita Sackville-West quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Click, clack, click, clack, went their conversation, like so many knitting-needles, purl, plain, purl, plain, achieving a complex pattern of references, cross-references, Christian names, nicknames, and fleeting allusions.More Vita Sackville-West quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
