The Solitary Summer - Elizabeth von Arnim

This quote was added by louistern34
I want to be alone for a whole summer, and get to the very dregs of life. I shall watch the things that happen in my garden, and see where I have made mistakes. On wet days I will go into the thickest parts of the forest, where the pine needles are everlastingly dry, and when the sun shines I'll lie on the heath and see how the broom flares against the clouds. I shall be perpetually happy because there will be no one to worry me.
