Three Quotes

  1. I wanted to communicate what I had seen, so that others could see it.
  2. At best, love is simply the slipping of a hand in another's, of knowing you are where you belong at last, and of exchanging through the eyes that all-consuming regard which ignores everybody else on earth.
  3. Wilde said he felt sorry for those who never got their heart’s desire, but sorrier still for those who did.

Lee was an English poet, novelist and screenwriter. His most famous work was an autobiographical trilogy which consisted of Cider with Rosie, As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning and A Moment of War.
