Gertrude Stein

(3 February 1874 – 27 July 1946 / Allegheny, Pennsylvania)

A Mounted Umbrella


WHAT was the use of not leaving it there where it would hang what was the use if there was no chance of ever seeing it come there and show that it was handsome and right in the way it showed it. The lesson is to learn that it does show it, that it shows it and that nothing, that there is nothing, that there is no more to do about it and just so much more is there plenty of reason for making an exchange.
