GERTRUDE STEIN QUOTES

A nice war is a war where everybody who is heroic is a hero, and everybody more or less is a hero in a nice war. Now this war is not at all a nice war.

GERTRUDE STEIN, Wars I Have Seen

War is more like a novel than it is like real life and that is its eternal fascination. It is a thing based on reality but invented, it is a dream made real, all the things that make a novel but not really life.

GERTRUDE STEIN, Paris France

The family is always the family but during vacations it is an extended family and that is exhausting.

GERTRUDE STEIN, Paris, France

America is my country and Paris is my home town and it is as it has come to be.

GERTRUDE STEIN, An American in Paris

Propaganda is not French, it is not civilized to want other people to believe what you believe because the essence of being civilised is to possess yourself as you are, and if you possess yourself as you are you of course cannot possess any one else, it is not your business.

GERTRUDE STEIN, Paris France

A long war like this makes you realise the society you really prefer, the home, goats chickens and dogs and casual acquaintances. I find myself not caring at all for gardens flowers or vegetables cats cows and rabbits, one gets tired of trees vines and hills, but houses, goats chickens dogs and casual acquaintances never pall.
