Favorite Campion Quotes

1. "Cyphel knew exactly how he felt about her as well — it was there in her expression whenever they spoke that beguiling combination of amusement and haughtiness that she carried off so well. It was a look that expressed disdain at Campion's guarded advances but also a kind of measured probationary respect as well. It was a look that said You dare to think that I will find you as interesting as you obviously find me Well perhaps in that very act of daring you become interesting to me if only fleetingly."
Author: Alastair Reynolds
2. "Old Campion had once said he believed - he positively believed, with shudders - that Christopher desired to live in the spirit of Christ. That had seemed horrible to the general, but Mark did not see that it was horrible, per se... He doubted, however, whether Christ would have refused to manage Groby had it been his job. Christ was sort of an Englishman and Englishmen did not as rule refuse their jobs... They had not used to; now no doubt they did."
Author: Ford Madox Ford
3. "Ogni vita è un enciclopedia, una biblioteca, un campionario di stili, dove tutto può essere continuamente rimescolato e riordinato in tutti i modi possibili"
Author: Italo Calvino
4. "Everything I've read about Christians in prison for their non-violent witness to Christ rings true. Whether it's St. Paul, St. Edmund Campion, Dorothy Day or Dr. King, the experience remains the same: God comes close to those in prison. God's spirit is unleashed on the person who suffers imprisonment in a spirit of obedient love. God is a God of prisoners, a God of the poor, a God of the oppressed--but most of all, as the life of Jesus testifies, a God of nonviolent resisters. God is a God of nonviolence and peace."
Author: John Dear
5. "...how many writers still dare compare a woman to Nature, like Campion? - there is a garden in her face - how lovely..."

7. "How lucky country children are in these natural delights that lie ready to their hand! Every season and every plant offers changing joys. As they meander along the lane that leads to our school all kinds of natural toys present themselves for their diversion. The seedpods of stitchwort hang ready for delightful popping between thumb and finger, and later the bladder campion offers a larger, if less crisp, globe to burst. In the autumn, acorns, beechnuts, and conkers bedizen their path, with all their manifold possibilities of fun. In the summer, there is an assortment of honeys to be sucked from bindweed flowers, held fragile and fragrant to hungry lips, and the tiny funnels of honeysuckle and clover blossoms to taste."

8. "La sigaretta è il perfetto campione del piacere. È squisita e ti lascia insoddisfato. Che puoi desiderare di meglio?"
Author: Oscar Wilde
9. "Vidi la mia vita diramarsi davanti a me come il verde albero di fico del racconto. Dalla punta di ciascun ramo occhieggiava e ammiccava, come un bel fico maturo, un futuro meraviglioso. Un fico rappresentava un marito e dei figli e una vita domestica felice, un altro fico rappresentava la famosa poetessa, un altro la brillante accademica, un altro ancora era Esther Greenwood, direttrice di una prestigiosa rivista, un altro era l'Europa e l'Africa e il Sudamerica, un altro fico era Costantin, Socrate, Attila e tutta una schiera di amanti dai nomi bizzarri e dai mestieri anticonvenzionali, un altro fico era la campionessa olimpionica di vela, e dietro e al di sopra di questi fichi ce n'erano molti altri che non riuscivo a distinguere. E vidi me stessa seduta alla biforcazione dell'albero, che morivo di fame per non saper decidere quale fico cogliere."
Author: Sylvia Plath
10. "A poor old Widow in her weedsSowed her garden with wild-flower seeds;Not too shallow, and not too deep,And down came April -- drip -- drip -- drip.Up shone May, like gold, and soonGreen as an arbour grew leafy June.And now all summer she sits and sewsWhere willow herb, comfrey, bugloss blows,Teasle and pansy, meadowsweet,Campion, toadflax, and rough hawksbit;Brown bee orchis, and Peals of Bells;Clover, burnet, and thyme she smells;Like Oberon's meadows her garden isDrowsy from dawn to dusk with bees.Weeps she never, but sometimes sighs,And peeps at her garden with bright brown eyes;And all she has is all she needs --A poor Old Widow in her weeds."
