A happy childhood is perhaps the most-fortunate gift in life.— Dorothy Richardson
The most controversy Dorothy Richardson quotes to get the best of your day
The difference between you and me is that you think to live and I live to think.
Every thought vibrates through the universe.
Suddenly a mist of green on the trees, as quiet as thought.
In the midst of the happiness they brought there was always a lurking shadow.
The shadow of incompatibility; of the impossibility of being at once bound and free. The garden breeds a longing for the wild; the wild a homesickness for the garden.
Dancing brings an endlessness in which nothing matters but to go on dancing - in a room, till the walls disappear - in the open, till the sky, moving as you dance, seems to cleave and let you through.
Real speech can only come from complete silence.
Incomplete silence is as fussy as deliberate conversation.
Night is torment. That is why people go to sleep. To avoid clear sight and torment.
Coercion. The unpardonable crime.
... men want recognition of their work, to help them believe in themselves.
No future life could heal the degradation of having been a woman.
Religion in the world had nothing but insults for women.
The question was not how to get a job, but how to live by such jobs as I could get.
Clear thought makes clear speech.
If there was a trick, there must be a trickster.
Quotations are feeble; you always regret making them.
Death must be got through as life had been, just somehow.
Men would always rather be made love to than talked at.
Women who are not living ought to spend all their time cracking jokes.
In a rotten society women grow witty; making a heaven while they wait.
until it had been clearly explained that men were always and always partly wrong in all their ideas, life would be full of poison and secret bitterness. Men fight about their philosophies and religions, there is no certainty in them; but their contempt for women is flawless and unanimous.
The joy of a party is the newness of people to each other, renewed strikingness of humanity. They love each other, to distraction. Really to distraction. Before they fall into conversation and separate. ... The strangeness, and the hopes aroused by strangeness, are illusions. Mirages arising wherever people gather expectantly together.
You think Christianity is favorable to women? On the contrary.
It is the Christian countries that have produced the prostitute and the most vile estimations of women in the world.
the Church will go on being a Royal Academy of Males.
It will all go on as long as women are stupid enough to go on bringing men into the world. . .
Marriage is not an institution, it is an intuition.
Life ought to be lived on a basis of silence, where truth blossoms.
People is themselves when they are children, and not again till they know they'm dying.
The better you hear a thing put, the more certain you are there's another view.
It's only in silence that you can judge of your relationship to a person.
