Florida Scott-Maxwell
“Age puzzles me. I thought it was a quiet time. My seventies were interesting, and fairly serene, but my eighties are passionate. I grow more intense as I age. To my own surprise I burst out with hot conviction. Only a few years ago I enjoyed my tranquility; now I am so disturbed by the outer world and by human quality in general that I want to put things right, as though I still owed a debt to life. I must calm down. I am far too frail to indulge in moral fervor.”
Florida Scott-Maxwell, The Measure of My Days
“Anger must be the evergy that has not yet found its right channel."---the Measure of my Days”
