P.D. James Quote: “Increase your word power. Words are the raw material of our craft.”

P.D. James Quote: “When I heard, Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, I thought, Did he fall or was he pushed?”
P.D. James Quote: “It was reasonable to struggle, to suffer, perhaps even to die, for a more just, a more compassionate society, but not in a world with no future where, all to soon, the very words “justice,” “compassion,” “society,” “struggle,” “evil,” would be unheard echoes on an empty air.”

P.D. James Quote: “Every island to a child is a treasure island.”
P.D. James Quote: “Man is diminished if he lives without knowledge of his past; without hope of a future he becomes a beast.”
P.D. James Quote: “Can we ever break free of the devices and desires of our own hearts? Might not our conscience be telling us what we most want to hear?”
P.D. James Quote: “There is no point in regretting any part of the past. The past can’t now be altered, the future has yet to be lived, and consciously to experience every moment of the present is the only way to gain at least the illusion of immortality.”
P.D. James Quote: “The world is changed not by the self-regarding, but by men and women prepared to make fools of themselves.”
P.D. James Quote: “We English are good at forgiving our enemies; it releases us from the obligation of liking our friends.”
P.D. James Quote: “I love the idea of bringing order out of disorder which is what the mystery is about. I like the way in which it affirms the sanity of human life and exorcises irrational guilts.”
P.D. James Quote: “Crime fiction confirms our belief, despite some evidence to the contrary, that we live in a rational, comprehensible, and moral universe.”
P.D. James Quote: “It’s easy to get a reputation for wisdom. It’s only necessary to live long, speak little and do less.”

P.D. James Quote: “I am fifty years old and I have never known what it is to love.
