Famous quotes containing the words doris lessing and/or lessing:

    This is certainly not the place for a discourse about what festivals are for. Discussions on this theme were plentiful during that phase of preparation and on the whole were fruitless. My experience is that discussion is fruitless. What sets forth and demonstrates is the sight of events in action, is living through these events and understanding them.
    Doris Lessing (b. 1919)

    “I suppose with the French Revolution for a father and the Russian Revolution for a mother, you can very well dispense with a family,” he observed.
    —Doris Lessing (b. 1919)
