"We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won't do harm–yes, choose a place where you won't do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine." ~ A Room With A View by E. M. Forster "It isn't possible to love and to part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal." ~ A Room With A View by E. M. Forster Science explained people, but could not understand them. After long centuries among the bones and muscles it might be advancing to knowledge of the nerves, but this would never give understanding. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster The tree rustled. It had made music before they were born, and would continue after their deaths, but its song was of the moment. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster People have their own deaths as well as their own lives, and even if there is nothing beyond death, we shall differ in our nothingness. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster She loved him with too clear a vision to fear his cloudiness. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster Some twenty years her senior, he preserved a gift that she supposed herself to have already lost--not youth's creative power, but its self-confidence and optimism. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster "What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives?" ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster "So few of us think clearly about our own private incomes, and admit that independent thoughts are in nine cases out of ten the result of independent means." ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster A funeral is not death, any more than baptism is birth or marriage union. All three are the clumsy devices, coming now too late, now too early, by which Society would register the quick motions of man. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster
