In the words of Anita Brookner

| ANITA BROOKNER |


‘The essence of romantic love is that wonderful beginning,
after which sadness and impossibility may become the rule.’

‘You can never betray the people who are dead…;the dead can’t answer slurs, but I’m here.’

“I would love to think Jesus wants me for a sunbeam, but he doesn’t”


‘No blame should attach to telling the truth.
But it does, it does.’

‘Real love is a pilgrimage. It happens when there is no strategy,
but it is very rare because most people are strategists.’


‘Writing novels preserves you in a state of innocence –
a lot passes you by- simply because your attention is otherwise diverted.’
