— Zelda Fitzgerald

And only weaklings ... who lack courage and the power to feel they're right when the whole world says they're wrong, ever lose.

— Zelda Fitzgerald

A southern moon is a sodden moon, and sultry. When it swamps the fields and the rustling sandy roads and the sticky honeysuckle hedges in its sweet stagnation, your fight to hold on to reality is like a protestation against a first waft of ether.

— Zelda Fitzgerald

The macabre who lived through the war have a story they loved to tell about the soldiers of the Foreign Legion giving a ball in the expanses around Verdun and dancing with the corpses. Alabama's continued brewing of the poisoned filter for a semiconscious banquet table, her insistence on the magic and glamor of life when she was already feeling its pulse like the throbbing of an amputated leg, had something of the same sinister quality.

She, she told herself, would move brightly along high places and stop to trespass and admire, and if the fine was a heavy one-well, there was no good in saving up beforehand to pay it. Full of these presumptuous resolves, she promised herself that if, in the future, her soul should come starving and crying for bread it should eat the stone she might have to offer without complaint or remorse.

— Zelda Fitzgerald

One illusion is as good as another.

— Zelda Fitzgerald

I take a sun bath and listen to the hours, formulating, and disintegrating under the pines, and smell the resiny hardihood of the high noon hours. The world is lost in a blue haze of distances, and the immediate sleeps in a thin and finite sun.

— Zelda Fitzgerald

Anything incomprehensible has a sexual significance to many people under thirty-five.

— Zelda Fitzgerald

Experience teaches you how to do things you never want to do again.

— Zelda Fitzgerald

The purpose of life on earth is that the soul should grow - So Growl By doing what is right.
