Anita Brookner Quotations

She died March 10, of this year it seems. She was 87. She won a Booker for Hotel Du Lac.
Brookner is eminently quotable.
“All good fortune is a gift of the gods, and you don’t win the favor of the ancient gods by being good, but by being bold.”
“Time misspent in youth is sometimes all the freedom one ever has.”
“Old men should have more care to end life well than to live long. “
