Quotes by Clare Mulley  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Christine did not live, or love, as most people do. She lived boundlessly, as generous as she could be cruel, prepared to give her life at any moment for a worthy cause, but rarely sparing a thought for the many casualties that fell in her wake.”
Clare Mulley, The Spy Who Loved: The Secrets and Lives of Christine Granville

“For a once renowned woman who loved telling tales of dodging bullets, wielding grenades and subverting dogs trained to kill, Christine's story is, surprisingly, little known today.”
Clare Mulley, The Spy Who Loved: The Secrets and Lives of Christine Granville

“She could do anything with dynamite, except eat it.”
Clare Mulley

Topics Mentioning This Author

“But most of these women -- the famous and the obscure -- had one thing in common: they did not think of themselves as heroes. They followed their consciences, saw something that needed to be done, and they did it. And all of them helped win a war, even though many of them paid the ultimate price for their contribution. But their sacrifice was not in vain, especially if their courage continues to inspire others to fight injustice and evil wherever they find it.
--From Women Heroes of WWII
Kathryn J. Atwood

“May be you find out I could be useful getting people out of camps and prisons in Germany - just before they got shot. I should love to do it and I like to jump out of a plane even every day.”
Christine Granville
