Famous quotes containing the word wharton:

    I am secretly afraid of animals.... I think it is because of the usness in their eyes, with the underlying not-usness which belies it, and is so tragic a reminder of the lost age when we human beings branched off and left them: left them to eternal inarticulateness and slavery. Why? their eyes seem to ask us.
    —Edith Wharton (1862–1937)

    After all, one knows one’s weak points so well, that it’s rather bewildering to have the critics overlook them & invent others.
    —Edith Wharton (1862–1937)

    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)
