There can be no happiness if the things we believe in are different from the things we do. FREYA STARK

Curiosity is the one thing invincible in Nature. FREYA STARK

To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world. FREYA STARK

I have met charming people, lots who would be charming if they hadn't got a complex about the British and everyone has pleasant and cheerful manners and I like most of the American voices. On the other hand I don't believe they have any God and their hats are frightful. On balance I prefer the Arabs. FREYA STARK



Absence is one of the most useful ingredients of family life, and to dose it rightly is an art like any other. FREYA STARK

The slightest living thing answers a deeper need than all the works of man because it is transitory. It has an evanescence of life, or growth, or change: it passes, as we do, from one stage to the another, from darkness to darkness, into a distance where we, too, vanish out of sight. A work of art is static; and its value and its weakness lie in being so: but the tuft of grass and the clouds above it belong to our own travelling brotherhood. FREYA STARK

Perhaps the best function of parenthood is to teach the young creature to love with safety, so that it may be able to venture unafraid when later emotion comes; the thwarting of the instinct to love is the root of all sorrow and not sex only but divinity itself is insulted when it is repressed. To disapprove, to condemn --the human soul shrivels under barren righteousness. FREYA STARK

Pain and fear and hunger are effects of causes which can be foreseen and known: but sorrow is a debt which someone else makes for us. FREYA STARK

The great and almost only comfort about being a woman is that one can always pretend to be more stupid than one is and no one is surprised. FREYA STARK

Christmas... is not an external event at all, but a piece of one's home that one carries in one's heart. FREYA STARK

Few are the giants of the soul who actually feel that the human race is their family circle. FREYA STARK
