Beach Haven West

Famous quotes containing the words beach, haven and/or west:

    The dominant and most deep-dyed trait of the journalist is his timorousness. Where the novelist fearlessly plunges into the water of self-exposure, the journalist stands trembling on the shore in his beach robe.... The journalist confines himself to the clean, gentlemanly work of exposing the griefs and shames of others.
    Janet Malcolm (b. 1934)

    The dry eucalyptus seeks god in the rainy cloud.
    Professor Eucalyptus of New Haven seeks him
    In New Haven with an eye that does not look
    Beyond the object.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    To have a place full of delights and nothing but delights, which one does not have to explain and defend to people who have ideas unsympathetic to one, it is to economize the forces which keep one from ending like the wisteria, from committing the unpardonable sin of doing things with difficulty.
    —Rebecca West (1892–1983)
