Favorite Quotes


"Noble deeds and hot baths are the best cures for depression."

"Contemplation seems to be about the only luxury that costs nothing."

"I am never happy when the elements go to extremes."


Three favorite quotes from one of my favorite novels, I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. All three come from the main character, Cassandra. (A book well-worth reading. And far better than the movie, though that's not half-bad.)

It's funny you should post this because I've noticed this book on my shelf recently and thought of rereading it. It was very enjoyable and, I agree, much better than the movie.

I've been reading your blog for a while now and am finally commenting. I don't think I ever met you at BJ but I really wish I had!! I love your discussions and the fact that you're always inspiring me to pick up a new book.

And by the way, I love CTC. I found a 1940's hardback copy (including the dustjacket!) at a used booksale and consider it to be one of my best used booksale finds.

Hi Heidi! Thanks for visiting and for commenting. And I'm quite jealous of your 1940s copy of ICTC! :-)
