„One has to remember that about imagination, that is when the world gets dull when everybody does not know what they can or what they cannot really imagine.“

— Gertrude Stein
Context: Would I if I could by pushing a button would I kill five thousand Chinamen if I could save my brother from anything. Well I was very fond of my brother and I could completely imagine his suffering and I replied that five thousand Chinamen were something I could not imagine and so it was not interesting. One has to remember that about imagination, that is when the world gets dull when everybody does not know what they can or what they cannot really imagine. Ch. 3

„It always did bother me that the American public were more interested in me than in my work.“

— Gertrude Stein
Context: It always did bother me that the American public were more interested in me than in my work. And after all there is no sense in it because if it were not for my work they would not be interested in me so why should they not be more interested in my work than in me. That is one of the things one has to worry about in America. Ch. 2

„A great deal of beauty is rapture. A circle is a necessity. Otherwise you would see no one. We each have our circle.“

— Gertrude Stein
Context: A beauty is not suddenly in a circle. It comes with rapture. A great deal of beauty is rapture. A circle is a necessity. Otherwise you would see no one. We each have our circle. "A Circular Play," from Last Operas and Plays (1949) [written in 1920]

„All of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation...“

— Gertrude Stein
Context: All of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation... You have no respect for anything. You drink yourselves to death. Statement quoted by Ernest Hemingway in A Moveable Feast (1964) Ch. 3, it had also provided the epigraph to The Sun Also Rises (1926).
