Famous quotes containing the word west:

    Women born at the turn of the century have been conditioned not to speak openly of their wedding nights. Of other nights in bed with other men they speak not at all. Today a woman having bedded with a great general feels free to tell us that in bed the general could not present arms. Women of my generation would have spared the great general the revelation of this failure.
    —Jessamyn West (1907–1984)

    Every man is in a state of conflict, owing to his attempt to reconcile himself and his relationship with life to his conception of harmony. This conflict makes his soul a battlefield, where the forces that wish this reconciliation fight those that do not and reject the alternative solutions they offer. Works of art are attempts to fight out this conflict in the imaginative world.
    —Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    Because hypocrisy stinks in the nostrils one is likely to rate it as a more powerful agent for destruction than it is.
    —Rebecca West (1892–1983)
