Three Quotes

  1. Welcome strangers! Come into my parlour, as a well-known spider said…
  2. A writer lives, at best, in a state of astonishment. Beneath any feeling he has of the good or evil of the world lies a deeper one of wonder at it all. To transmit that feeling, he writes.
  3. London is a bad habit one hates to lose.

William Sansom was a British novelist, travel and short story writer. In 1951 was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. His works include The Body and Vertical Ladder.
