Famous quotes containing the words willa cather, house and/or cather:
“I kept as still as I could. Nothing happened. I did not expect anything to happen. I was something that lay under the sun and felt it, like the pumpkins, and I did not want to be anything more. I was entirely happy. Perhaps we feel like that when we die and become a part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge. At any rate, that is happiness; to be dissolved into something complete and great. When it comes to one, it comes as naturally as sleep.”
—Willa Cather (18731947)
“If you follow the suburban fashion in building a sumptuous- looking house for a little money, it will appear to all eyes as a cheap, dear house.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“I like trees because they seem more resigned to the way they have to live than other things do.”
—Willa Cather (18761947)
