Favorite Eggers Quotes

1. "Even Winnipeggers who depart for Toronto, Calgary or Vancouver never assimilate or fully lose their regional identity. They remain stuck on their birthplace, in the middle of the flat, snowy, buggy, flood-prone and isolated prairie, where everyone seems to know everyone despite the impossibility of the arithmetic involved."
Author: Bartley Kives
2. "Tommy Smothers is my longest mentor, and Dave Eggers is my youngest."
Author: Don Novello
3. "Oliver, we've got something to tell you," Dad says, dumping a cardboard box full of garden waste into a toad green mangler. Unlike the doctor, when Dad says we, he means we because Mum is omnipotent. "Who's dead?" I ask, shot-putting a bottle of Richebourg. "No one's dead." "You're getting a divorce?" "Oliver." "Mum's preggers?" "No, we—" "I'm adopted." "Oliver! Please, shit up!"
Author: Joe Dunthorne
4. "Versace designs have always been bootlegged. Now it's Versace bootlegging the bootleg for the bootleggers to bootleg the bootleg."
Author: M.I.A.
5. "Given the current state of publishing, I think it helps to have a brand name on the cover of your book. Comedians are proven commodities with built-in audiences. They may not have the writing chops of a Dave Eggers, but they're salacious and funny and self-reflective."
Author: Michael Showalter
6. "Every general prohibition creates its bootleggers."
Author: Robert A. Heinlein
7. "Think selfishly,' Daine said, trying to make these arrogant two-leggers see what she meant. 'You can't go on this way. Soon you will have no forests to get wood from or to hunt game in. You poison water you drink and bathe and fish in. Even if you keep the farms, they won't be enough to feed you if the rest of the valley's laid waste. You'll starve. Your people will starve- unless you buy from outside the valley, and that's fair expensive. You'll ruin Dunlath."
Author: Tamora Pierce
8. "Having grown up in Oklahoma when it was one of the last states which prohibited liquor, I grew up with War On Drugs, where every teenager knew who the bootleggers were."
Author: Tony Hillerman
9. "Good art can come out of thieves, bootleggers, or horse swipes. People really are afraid to find out just how much hardship and poverty they can stand. They are afraid to find out how tough they are. Nothing can destroy the good writer. The only thing that can alter the good writer is death. Good ones don't have time to bother with success or getting rich. Success is feminine and like a woman; if you cringe before her, she will override you. So the way to treat her is to show her the back of your hand. Then maybe she will do the crawling."
Author: William Faulkner
