I’m Mallory Duffield

I’m a British dreamer, photographer, and market lover. And I’m an English major.


Mallory Duffield

Forever dreaming about the beautiful English countryside.

One of my all time favorite quotes is from F. Scott Fitzgerald, who said, “That is part of the beauty of literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” I’m becoming an English major because I’m a word nerd. I am completely obsessed with the power of words. They have always been a major part of my life, whether they were coming from my mouth or from the pen. I believe that words have a special power to touch the hearts of others, resonating deep within them and allowing them to connect with others.

To me, nothing is better than the feeling you get after reading a book that has left you utterly speechless or finally writing a poem just right. I could spend hours discussing Shakespeare or England or a new poem I heard in class the other day. Red pen on white paper is one of my favorite things. John Keating in Dead Poets Society was speaking to me when he said, “Medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”

One of my favorite books is William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury.
