Favorite Wilkie Quotes

1. "I adore Wilkie Collins," Tessa cried. "Oh—Armadale! And The Woman in White …Are you laughing at me?""Not at you," said Will, grinning, "more because of you. I've never seen anyone get soexcited over books before. You'd think they were diamonds.""Well, they are, aren't they? Isn't there anything you love like that? And don't say ‘spats' or ‘lawn tennis' or something silly.""Good Lord," he said with mock horror, "it's like she knows me already."
Author: Cassandra Clare
2. "We fought, Wilkie Collins and I. We fought bitterly and with all our might, to a standstill, over a period of about three weeks, on trains and aeroplanes and by hotel swimming pools. Sometimes – usually late at night, in bed – he could put me out cold with a single paragraph; every time I got through twenty or thirty pages, it felt to me as though I'd socked him good, but it took a lot out of me, and I had to retire to my corner to wipe the blood and sweat off my reading glasses. Only in the last fifty-odd pages, after I'd landed several of these blows, did old Wilkie show any signs buckling under the assault."
Author: Nick Hornby
3. "When I get tired of new clunky writing, I resort to old fashioned story tellers, like Wilkie Collins."
Author: Sonia Rumzi
