"Money pads the edges of things." ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster She could not explain in so many words, but she felt that those who prepare for all the emergencies of life beforehand may equip themselves at the expense of joy. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster Away she hurried, not beautiful, not supremely brilliant, but filled with something that took the place of both qualities -- something best described as a profound vivacity, a continual and sincere response to all that she encountered in her path through life. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster Mature as he was, she might yet be able to help him to the building of the rainbow bridge that should connect the prose in us with the passion.

Forster The crime of suicide lies rather in its disregard for the feelings of those whom we leave behind. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster It is thus, if there is any rule, that we ought to die--neither as victim nor as fanatic, but as the seafarer who can greet with an equal eye the deep that he is entering, and the shore that he must leave. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster "You remember how he would trust strangers, and if they fooled him he would say, 'It's better to be fooled than to be suspicious'--that the confidence trick is the work of man, but the want-of-confidence trick is the work of the devil." ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster It is the vice of a vulgar mind to be thrilled by bigness, to think that a thousand square miles are a thousand times more wonderful than one square mile, and that a million square miles are almost the same as heaven. ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster "Death destroys a man: the idea of Death saves him." ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster
