Some sins have no season. We are as likely to be angry in November as to lose our rag in March ... There is, though, something autumnal about greed, apple-cheeked and wheat-crowned, purpled knee-high in grapes; something summery in sloth, as the hammock creaks in the fly-drowsy heat; and more than a tickle of spring in lust, as birds pair and the sap rises. Among these, ingratitude is winter, the worst of seasons.More Ann Wroe quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Ingratitude is the frost that nips the flower even as it opens, that shrivels the generous apple on the branch, that freezes the fountain in mid-flow and numbs the hand, even in the very act of giving. It is a sin of silence, absence and omission, as winter's sin is a lack of light; a sin against charity, which otherwise warms the heart and, in the truest sense, makes the world turn.More Ann Wroe quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I got very keen on biography because I wanted to change it. I wanted to stretch the form. I think of it as a way of capturing souls.More Ann Wroe quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
