- Science, or parascience, tells us that geraniums bloom better if they are spoken to. But a kind word every now and then is really quite enough. Too much attention, like too much feeding and weeding and hoeing, inhibits and embarrasses them. permalink
- The facts of life are to the biographer what the text of a novel is to the critic. permalink
quoted by John Haffenden in Times Literary Supplement (23 February 1996)
