Muriel Spark
New York, home of the vivisectors of the mind, and of the mentally vivisected still to be reassembled, of those who live intact, habitually wondering about their states of sanity, and home of those whose minds have been dead, bearing the scars of resurrection.
Spark quotes
Parents learn a lot from their children about coping with life.
The one certain way for a woman to hold a man is to leave him for religion.

Spark Muriel quotes
It is impossible to persuade a man who does not disagree, but smiles.
Spark Muriel
One's prime is elusive. You little girls, when you grow up, must be on the alert to recognise your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur. You must then live it to the full.
Muriel Spark quotes
It is impossible to repent of love. The sin of love does not exist.
Muriel Spark
To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul. To Miss Mackay it is a putting in of something that is not there, and that is not what I call education, I call it intrusion.
