Famous quotes containing the word smyth:

    The habit some writers indulge in of perpetual quotation is one it behoves lovers of good literature to protest against, for it is an insidious habit which in the end must cloud the stream of thought, or at least check spontaneity.

    —Dame Ethel Smyth (1858–1944)
