E.F. Benson Quote: “I have lived, and never a ghost have I seen as yet.” The old woman sat staring hard into the fire, her pale eyes wide open. “Ay,” she broke in; “and eight-and-twenty years you have lived and never seen the likes of this house, I reckon.

E.F. Benson Quote: “He deceived me by telling the truth.”
E.F. Benson Quote: “For it is a most extraordinary, though common, phenomenon to find that perfectly virtuous and upright people often like to be thought just a little wicked, whereas bad people are totally indifferent for the most part as to whether or not anyone thinks them good or not.”

E.F. Benson Quote: “It is absurd and ridiculous to want to remain as one was. Indeed, not to change shows that one has a nature incapable of development.

And one of the biggest, and perhaps best effects of age is to give one tolerance, to make one realize that it takes all sorts to make a world.” He.”
E.F. Benson Quote: “No trumps. Not a trump. Not any sort of Trump. There!”
E.F. Benson Quote: “These invitations were couched in Chesterfield terms: Mr. Wyse said that he had met a mutual friend just now who had informed him that you were in residence, and had encouraged him to hope that you might give him the pleasure of your company, etc. This was alluring diction: it presented the image of Mr. Wyse stepping briskly home again, quite heartened up by this chance encounter, and no longer the prey to melancholy at the thought that you might not give him the joy.”
E.F. Benson Quote: “Bits of exultation kept peeping out, and Lucia kept poking them back.”

E.F. Benson Quote: “Philosophers have argued about the strongest emotion known to man. Some say ‘love’, others ‘hate’, others ‘fear’. I am disposed to put ‘curiosity’ on a level, at least, with these august sensations, just mere simple inquisitiveness.”
E.F. Benson Quote: “My dear, it is just busy people that have time for everything.”
E.F. Benson Quote: “No one is ever bored unless they are comfortable. That’s the great principle. There isn’t time for it. You cannot be bored and something else at the same time. Being comfortable doesn’t count; that’s our normal condition. But you needn’t be uncomfortable in order to be bored. It’s very comfortable sitting here with you, and I’m not the least bored. I should poison myself if I were bored: I can’t think why you don’t.”
