    There’s no such thing as old age, there is only sorrow.

    And no more love; Gone is the heart of Man.
    —Dame Edith Sitwell (1887–1964)

    I have been spending my first night in an American “summer hotel,” and I despair of the Republic! Such dreariness, such whining callow 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 a sense of beauty, and eating bananas for breakfast.
    —Edith Wharton (1862–1937)
