Edith Sitwell Quotations

-Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd.

-My personal hobbies are reading, listening to music, and silence.

-Vulgarity is, in reality, nothing but a modern, chic, pert descendant of the goddess Dullness.

-I have often wished I had time to cultivate modesty… But I am too busy thinking about myself.

-The public will believe anything, so long as it is not founded on truth.
