Amelia E. Barr Quote
When answering was likely to provoke anger, she kept silence and talked the matter over with herself. A very wise plan. For where shall we find a friend so intimate, so discreet, so conciliating as self? Who can speak to us so well? — without obscurity, without words, without passion. Yes, indeed: 'I will talk to myself' is a very significant phrase.
The Maid of Maiden Lane (1900)
