Quotes of Stella Gibbons

Английский поэт и писательница

  • ⋅One of the disadvantages of almost universal education was the fact that all kinds of persons acquired a familiarity with one's favorite writers. It gave one a curious feeling; it was like seeing a drunken stranger wrapped in one's dressing gown. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅I saw something nasty in the woodshed. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅Like all really strong-minded women, on whom everybody flops, she adored being bossed about. It was so restful. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅She liked Victorian novels. They were the only kind of novel you could read while eating an apple. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅Nature is all very well in her place, but she must not be allowed to make things untidy. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅You have the most revolting Florence Nightingale complex,' said Mrs. Smiling. It is not that at all, and well you know it.

  • ⋅. . . And she said it was a pity, because my father was so “keen”, and what did I care about? So I said, well, I was not quite sure, but on the whole I thought I liked having everything very tidy and calm all around me, and not being bothered to do things, and laughing at the kind of joke other people didn’t think at all funny, and going for country walks, and not being asked to express opinions about things (like love, and isn’t so-and-so peculiar?). So then she said, oh, well, didn’t I think I could try to be a little less slack, because of Father, and I said no, I was I afraid I couldn’t; and after that she left me alone. But all the others still said I was no good. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅Women are all alike-- aye fussin' over their fal-lals and bedazin' a man's eyes, when all they really want is man's blood and his heart out of his body and his soul and his pride.... /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅That would be delightful,' agreed Flora, thinking how nasty and boring it would be. /Stella Gibbons

  • ⋅I do not object to the phenomena, but I do object to the parrot. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅Well,' said Mrs Smiling, 'it sounds an appalling place, but in a different way from all the others. I mean, it does sound interesting and appalling, while the others just sound appalling. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅Here was an occasion, she thought, for indulging in that deliberate rudeness which only persons with habitually good manners have the right to commit... /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅A straight nose is a great help if one wishes to look serious'. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅She glanced upwards for a second at the soft blue vault of the midsummer night sky. Not a cloud misted its solemn depths. Tomorrow would be a beautiful day. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅While she lay there with these old worn thoughts coming obediently into her mind, called there by habit and the familiar quiet of early morning, she was aware that at the back of her mind there was another thought that was not at all stale, but so fresh that it was nearly a feeling, with all a feeling's delicious power to kill thought. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅I think it's degrading of you, Flora,' cried Mrs Smiling at breakfast. 'Do you truly mean that you don't ever want to work at anything?' Her friend replied after some thought: 'Well, when I am fifty-three or so I would like to write a novel as good as "Persuasion", but with a modern setting, of course. For the next thirty years or so I shall be collecting material for it. If anyone asks me what I work at, I shall say "Collecting material." No one can object to that. Besides, I shall be.' Mrs Smiling drank some coffee in silent disapproval. 'If you ask me,' continued Flora, 'I think I have much in common with Miss Austen. She liked everything to be tidy and pleasant and comfortable around her, and so do I. You see Mary,' - and here Flora began to grow earnest and to wave one finger about - 'unless everything is tidy and pleasant and comfortable all about one, people cannot even begin to enjoy life. I cannot endure messes. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅Well, when I am fifty-three or so I would like to write a novel as good as Persuasion but with a modern setting, of course. For the next thirty years or so I shall be collecting material for it. If anyone asks me what I work at, I shall say, 'Collecting material'. No one can object to that. /Stella Gibbons

  • ⋅...The Abbe's warning: 'Never confront an enemy at the end of a journey, unless it happens to be his journey'. /Stella Gibbons
  • ⋅On the whole, Flora liked it better when they were silent, though it did rather give her the feeling that she was acting in one of the less cheerful German highbrow films. /Stella Gibbons
