Edmund Gosse

I was much affected by the internal troubles of the Punch family; I thought that with a little more tact on the part of Mrs. Punch and some restraint held over a temper, naturally violent, by Mr. Punch, a great deal of this sad misunderstanding might have been prevented.More Edmund Gosse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The past is a funeral gone by.More Edmund Gosse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The immediate success of the war poem anthologies ... proved that the war had aroused in a new public an ear for contemporary verse ... There has never before, in the world's history, been an epoch which has tolerated and even welcomed such a flood of verse as has been poured forth over Great Britain during the last three years.More Edmund Gosse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The future comes like an unwelcome guest.More Edmund Gosse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In mature years I have always been gregarious, a lover of my kind, dependent upon the company of friends for the very pulse of moral life. To be marooned, to be shut up in a solitary cell, to inhabit a lighthouse, or to camp alone in a forest, these have always seemed to me afflictions too heavy to be borne, even in imagination. A state in which conversation exists not, is for me an air too empty of oxygen for my lungs to breathe it.More Edmund Gosse quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
