Favorite Poor Boy Quotes

1. "Sometimes I hear the world discussed as the realm of men. This is not my experience. I have watched men fall to the ground like leaves. They were swept up as memories, and burned.

Is it any wonder that he wavered for a time, poor boy?"
Author: Graham Greene

There is a great deal of drudgery in even the most inspired, the most noble, the most distinguished writing.

Believe me, my poor boy, if you wait for inspiration in our set-up, you'll wait for ever."
Author: Ngaio Marsh

Author: Paul Simon
