Tender is the Night

By F. Scott Fitzgerald

QUOTATION: Her body calculated to a millimeter to suggest a bud yet guarantee a flower.
ATTRIBUTION: F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940), U.S. author. Tender Is the Night, bk. 1, ch. 24 (1934).

QUOTATION: Eighteen might look at thirty-four through a rising mist of adolescence; but twenty-two would see thirty-eight with discerning clarity.
ATTRIBUTION: F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940), U.S. author. Tender Is the Night, bk. 2, ch. 19 (1934).

QUOTATION: When people are taken out of their depths they lose their heads, no matter how charming a bluff they may put up.
ATTRIBUTION: F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940), U.S. author. Baby Warren, in Tender is the Night, bk. 3, ch. 12 (1934).

QUOTATION: Either you think—or else others have to think for you and take power from you, pervert and discipline your natural tastes, civilize and sterilize you.
ATTRIBUTION: F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940), U.S. author. Nicole’s thoughts, in Tender Is the Night, bk. 3, ch. 7 (1934).

QUOTATION: I hate the place like poison with a sincere hatred.
ATTRIBUTION: F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940), U.S. author. Letter, January 10, 1935, to his agent. Published in As Ever, Scott Fitz, ed. Matthew J. Bruccoli (1973).

QUOTATION: One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.
ATTRIBUTION: F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940), U.S. author. Tender is the Night, bk. 2, ch. 11 (1934).
