Muriel Spark
Quotations


Being over seventy is like being engaged in a war. All our friends are going or gone and we survive amongst the dead and the dying as on a battlefield.

If youíre going to do a thing, you should do it thoroughly. If youíre going to be a Christian, you may as well be a Catholic.

If I had my life over again I should form the habit of nightly composing myself to thoughts of death. I would practice, as it were, the remembrance of death. There is no other practice which so intensifies life. Death, when it approaches, ought not to take one by surprise. It should be part of the full expectancy of life. Without an ever-present sense of death life is insipid. You might as well live on the whites of eggs.

Oneís prime is elusive. You little girls, when you grow up, must be on the alert to recognize your prime at whatever time of your life it may occur. You must then live it to the full.

Art and religion first; then philosophy; lastly science. That is the order of the great subjects of life, thatís their order of importance.
