Susan Glaspell Quotes: Only Cowards And The Broken In Spirit

Only Cowards And The Broken In Spirit Surrendered The Future As Payment For The Past. Love Was The Great And Beautiful Wonder - But Surely One Should Not Stay With It In The Place Where It Found One. Why, Loving Should Light The Way! Far From Engulfing All The Rest Of Life It Seemed Now That Love Should Open Life To One. Whether One Kept It Or Whether One Lost It, It Failed If It Did Not Send One Farther Along The Way. She Had Been Afraid To Think Of Her Love Changing Because That Had Seemed To Grant That It Had Failed. But Now It Seemed That It Failed If It Did Not Leave Her Bigger Than It Had Found Her. Her Eyes Filled In Response To The Stern Beauty Of That. Not That One Should Stay With Love In The Same Place, But Rather The Meaning Of It All Was In Just This: That It Should Send One On.
