Quote: Edith Sitwell

 
 

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. 

~ Edith Sitwell

Dame Edith Sitwell (1887 – 1964) was an English poet and critic.  With angular features and 183cm (6’) tall, she was even more of a standout in a crowd by her manner of dress:  she often wore gowns of brocade or velvet with gold turbans and extensive jewellery.
