Famous quotes by edna ferber:
“Wasnt marriage, like life, unstimulating and unprofitable and somewhat empty when too well ordered and protected and guarded. Wasnt it finer, more splendid, more nourishing, when it was, like life itself, a mixture of the sordid and the magnificent; of mud and stars; of earth and flowers; of love and hate and laughter and tears and ugliness and beauty and hurt?”
