Vita Sackville-West
b. 3-9-1892; Knole House, Kent, England
d. 6-2-1962

Author and poet Vita Sackville-West was famous for her aristocratic life, her gardens at Sissinghurst Castle, strong marriage to diplomat Harold Nicolson, and her affairs with women such as Virginia Woolf. She is the only writer to win the Hawthornden Prize twice (1927, The Land; 1933, Collected Poems).

Vita Sackville-West quotes ~
• “What is beautiful is good, and who is good will soon be beautiful.”
• “Authority has every reason to fear the skeptic, for authority can rarely survive in the face of doubt.”
• “Women, like men, ought to have their youth so glutted with freedom they hate the very idea of freedom.”
• “If it is true that one of the greatest pleasures of gardening lies in looking forward, then the planning of next year's beds and borders must be one of the most agreeable occupations in the gardener's calendar. This should make October and November particularly pleasant months, for then we may begin to clear our borders, to cut down those sodden and untidy stalks, to dig up and increase our plants, and to move them to other positions where they will show up to greater effect. People who are not gardeners always say that the bare beds of winter are uninteresting; gardeners know better, and take even a certain pleasure in the neatness of the newly dug, bare, brown earth.”

Francoise Sagan
pseudonym for Francoise Quoirez
b. 6-21-1935; Cajarc, France
d. 7-31-2004; Honfleur (heart disease)

Novelist, playwright and lyricist Francoise Sagan was born to bourgeois parents who spoiled her. She took her pseudonym from a Marcel Proust character.

Sagan published her first novel, Bonjour Tristesse (“Hello Sadness”), at eighteen. She was fond of fast driving, gambling, affairs with both men and women, and drugs.

Francoise Sagan quotes ~
• “I have loved to the point of madness, that which is called madness, that which to me is the only sensible way to love.”
• “A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to want to take it off you.”
• When asked if she believed in love: "Are you joking? I believe in passion. Nothing else. Two years, no more. All right, then: three.”
• “To jealousy, nothing is more frightful than laughter.”

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
b. 6-29-1900; Lyon, France
d. 7-31-1944; plane crash

Saint-Exupery was one of the pioneers of international postal flight and many of his stories drew on his flight experiences. One of Saint-Exupery's most famous works is Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince) an illustrated tale in which a stranded pilot meets the Little Prince, a young boy from a tiny astroid.

In 1935 Saint-Exupery was fortunate to survive a crash in the Libyan Desert.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry quotes ~
• “Charity never humiliated him who profited from it, nor ever bound him by the chains of gratitude, since it was not to him but to God that the gift was made.”
• “I know but one freedom, and that is the freedom of the mind.”
• “A civilization is built on what is required of men, not on that which is provided for them.”
• “A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
• “How could drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on.”
• “Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.”
• “Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.”

The Little Prince poster

FYI - Saint-Exupery gave the Little Prince's astroid the name B-612, so that adults would know it is real - B612 is the name of the organization working to avoid an astroid-Earth collison.

• “Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.”

J.D. Salinger
b. 1-1-1919; NYC
d. 1-27-2010; Cornish, NH

Jerome David Salinger is an American author best known for his classic novel The Catcher in the Rye (1951) and his reclusive nature.

Catcher in the Rye depicts a teenager's nervous breakdown, and as recently as 1983 “the book's contents” were cited as justification to ban the book.

J. D. Salinger quotes ~
• “It's funny. All you have to do is say something nobody understands and they'll do practically anything you want them to.”
• “Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you'll start missing everybody.” (Holden Caulfield)
• “Poets are always taking the weather so personally.”

FYI - Robert Burn's Comin' Through the Rye was title inspiration for Salinger's Catcher in the Rye.
