Famous quotes containing the word wharton:

    My first few weeks in America are always miserable, because the tastes I am cursed with are all of a kind that cannot be gratified here, & I am not enough in sympathy with our “gros public” to make up for the lack on the aesthetic side. One’s friends are delightful; but we are none of us Americans, we don’t think or feel as the Americans do, we are the wretched exotics produced in a European glass-house, the most déplacé & useless class on earth!
    —Edith Wharton (1862–1937)

    When people ask for time, it’s always for time to say no. Yes has one more letter in it, but it doesn’t take half as long to say.
    —Edith Wharton (1862–1937)

    I despair of the Republic! Such dreariness, such whining sallow women, such utter absence of the amenities, such crass food, crass manners, crass landscape!!... What a horror it is for a whole nation to be developing without the sense of beauty, & eating bananas for breakfast.
    —Edith Wharton (1862–1937)
