Vita Sackville-West Quote: “The public, as a whole, finds reassurance in longevity, and, after the necessary interlude of reaction, is disposed to recognize extreme old age as a sign of excellence. The long-liver has triumphed over at least one of man’s initial handicaps: the brevity of life.”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “I do not like January very much. It is too stationary. Not enough happens. I like the evidences of life, and in January there are too few of them.”

Vita Sackville-West Quote: “All emotion now was a twilight thing.”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “Virginia wasn’t all cool intellect by any means. She had the warmest and deepest and most human of affections for those she loved. They were few, perhaps, and she applied alarmingly high standards, but her love and humanity were real, once they were given.”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “Cristina, being something of a gardener, knew well enough that certain plants may appear to remain stationary for years while they are really making roots underground, only to break into surprising vigour overhead at a given moment.”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “Lovers, or potential lovers, ought never to meet before the afternoon.”

Vita Sackville-West Quote: “I think we have got something indestructible between us, haven’t we?”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment.”

Vita Sackville-West Quote: “We could never have hit it off for long. There was never anything but love to keep us together.”

Vita Sackville-West Quote: “There had been no moments when she could differentiate and say: Then, at such a moment, I love him; and again, Then, at such another, I loved him not. The stress had been constant. her love for him had been a straight black line drawn right through her life. It had hurt her, it had damaged her, it had diminished her, but she had been unable to curve away from it.”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “All love is a weakness, if it comes to that, in so far as it destroys some part of our independence.”

Vita Sackville-West Quote: “Someday I’ll write and tell you all the things you mean to me in my mind. Shall I?”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “My bed’s at least nine foot wide, and I feel like the Princes and the Pea, – only there is no Pea. It is a four-poster, all of which I like. Come and see for yourself.”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “The only time I thought of Virginia as being eclipsed was when the sun himself shared her darkening and I saw her standing wraithlike on a Yorkshire moor while the shadow swept onwards towards totality.”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “I wish, in a way, that we could put the clock back a year. I should like to startle you again, – even though I didn’t know then that you were startled.”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “He was a foolish cynic who said that great love occurred only two or three times in a century. There is nothing more lovely in life than the union of two people whose love for one another has grown through the years from the small acorn of passion into a great rooted tree. Surviving all vicissitudes, and rich with its manifold branches, every leaf holding its own significance.”
Vita Sackville-West Quote: “I am absolutely devoted to her, but not in love. So there.”

Vita Sackville-West Quote: “Her body had, in fact, become her companion, a constant resource and preoccupation; all the small squalors of the body, known only to oneself, insignificant in youth, easily dismissed, in old age became dominant and entered into fulfilment of the tyranny they had always threatened. Yet it was, rather than otherwise, an agreeable and interesting tyranny.”
