„Whenever I prepare for a journey I prepare as though for death. Should I never return, all is in order.“

—  Katherine Mansfield
Context: Whenever I prepare for a journey I prepare as though for death. Should I never return, all is in order. This is what life has taught me. Journal entry (29 January 1922), published in The Journal of Katherine Mansfield (1927)

„I feel happy — deep down. All is well.“

—  Katherine Mansfield
Context: Warm, eager, living life — to be rooted in life — to learn, to desire to know, to feel, to think, to act. That is what I want. And nothing less. That is what I must try for. … This all sounds very strenuous and serious. But now that I have wrestled with it, it’s no longer so. I feel happy — deep down. All is well. Entry in her journal (10 October 1922) which she tore out to send to John Middleton Murry, before changing her mind. This later became the last published entry in The Journal of Katherine Mansfield (1927) edited by J. Middleton Murry

„It's an infernal nuisance to love Life as I do. I seem to love it more as time goes on rather than less. It never becomes a habit to me. It's always a marvel.“

—  Katherine Mansfield
Context: It's an infernal nuisance to love Life as I do. I seem to love it more as time goes on rather than less. It never becomes a habit to me. It's always a marvel. I do hope I'll be able to keep in it long enough to do some really good work. I'm sick of people dying who promise well. Letter to Anne Estelle Rice (21 May 1921)), from The Collected Letters of Katherine Mansfield, vol. IV
