Famous quotes containing the words elizabeth bowen, bowen and/or elizabeth:

    When I read a story, I relive the moment from which it sprang. A scene burned itself into me, a building magnetized me, a mood or season of Nature’s penetrated me, history suddenly appeared to me in some tiny act, or a face had begun to haunt me before I glanced at it.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    Innocence always calls mutely for protection, when we would be much wiser to guard ourselves against it ... innocence is like a dumb leper who has lost his bell, wandering the world meaning no harm.
    —Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    A great many will find fault in the resolution that the negro shall be free and equal, because our equal not every human being can be; but free every human being has a right to be. He can only be equal in his rights.
    Mrs. Chalkstone, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 2, ch. 16, by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Matilda Joslyn Gage (1882)
