Mabel Dodge Luhan

  • ... the strongest, surest way to the soul is through the flesh.

  • We do not know people by experience; experience through the passing of time merely ratifies the first full realization we have received entire.

  • ... the least that we are appears, actually, in the flesh, and the truth lies behind bone and muscle.

  • How ruthless we are when we live on the surface of life!

  • It seemed to me then that there was no single stable element in the universe, either outside or inside my own brain. That was possibly the instant that I recognized once for all the immutable truth that actually there is nothing except what one creates for oneself.

  • I have always been myself and at the same time someone else; always able to be the other person, feel with him, think his thoughts, see from the angle in which he has found himself. It is the only genius that I have ever had, but it has been enough.

    • Mabel Dodge Luhan,
    • in Malcolm Forbes, Women Who Made a Difference ()
  • All my life I have been overcoming my fears and knocking at closed doors. And it has always seemed worth the effort.

  • Books sent my clamorous spirit into another world. They have been accumulating and passing through my hands ever since.
