Vita Sackville-West

Vita Sackville-West

Women, like men, ought to have their youth so glutted with freedom they hate the very idea of freedom.More Vita Sackville-West [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Travel is the most private of pleasures. There is no greater bore than the travel bore. We do not in the least want to hear what he has seen in Hong-Kong.More Vita Sackville-West [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is very necessary to have markers of beauty left in a world seemingly bent on making the most evil ugliness.More Vita Sackville-West [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? for the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop. Growth is exciting; growth is dynamic and alarming. Growth of the soul, growth of the mind.More Vita Sackville-West [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I worshipped dead men for their strength, forgetting I was strong.More Vita Sackville-West [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
What is beautiful is good, and who is good will soon be beautiful.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The writer catches the changes of his mind on the hop. Growth is exciting; growth is dynamic and alarming. Growth of the soul, growth of the mind.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Days I enjoy are days when nothing happens, When I have no engagements written on my block, When no one comes to disturb my inward peace, When no one comes to take me away from myself And turn me into a patchwork, a jig-saw puzzle, A broken mirror that once gave a whole reflection, Being so contrived that it takes too long a time To get myself back to myself when they have gone.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have come to the conclusion, after many years of sometimes sad experience, that you cannot come to any conclusion at all.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is dreadful how I miss you, and everything that everybody says seems flat and stupid.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Travel is the most private of pleasures. There is no greater bore than the travel bore. We do not in the least want to hear what he has seen in Hong-Kong.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I worshipped dead men for their strength, Forgetting I was strong.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The more one gardens, the more one learns; And the more one learns, the more one realizes how little one knows.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Summer makes a silence after spring.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Gardening is a luxury occupation: an ornament, not a necessity, of life.... Fortunate gardener, who may preoccupy himself solely with beauty in these difficult and ugly days! He is one of the few people left in this distressful world to carry on the tradition of elegance and charm. A useless member of society, considered in terms of economics, he must not be denied his rightful place. He deserves to share it, however humbly, with the painter and poet.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A flowerless room is a soulless room, to my way of thinking; but even a solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Flowers really do intoxicate me.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Ambition, old as mankind, the immemorial weakness of the strong.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
April, the angel of the months, the young love of the year.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Autumn in felted slipper shuffles on, Muted yet fiery.--Vita Sackville-WestMore Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It always seemed to me that the herbaceous peony is the very epitome of June. Larger than any rose,
it has something of the cabbage rose's voluminous quality; and when it finally drops from the vase, it
sheds its petticoats with a bump on the table, all in an intact heap, much as a rose will suddenly fall,
making us look up from our book or conversation, to notice for one moment the death of what had
still appeared to be a living beauty.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I loved you when love was Spring, and May, Loved you when summer deepened into June, and now when autumn yellows all the leaves...More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I like owls. I admire their intransigent spirit. I have respected them deeply ever since I met a baby owl in a wood, when it fell over dead, apparently from sheer temper, because I dared to approach it. It defied me first, and then died. I have never forgotten the horror and shame I experienced when that soft fluffy thing (towards which I had nothing but the most humanitarian motives) fell dead from rage at my feet.More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For bees are captious folk / And quick to turn against the lubber's touch ...More Vita Sackville-West [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
