Quotes About Ideas

"Ideas, of course, have a place in fiction, and any writer of fiction needs a mind. But ideas are not the best subject matter for fiction. They do not dramatize well. They are, rather, a by-product, something the reader himself is led to formulate after watching the story unfold. The ideas, the generalizations, ought to be implicit in the selection and arrangement of the people and places and actions. They ought to haunt a piece of fiction as a ghost flits past an attic window after dark." - Author: Wallace Stegner

Quotes About Diller

"Kapıdan çıkarlarken üstlerine şemsiye tutuluyordu; zaten arabaya kadar iki adımlık bir yoldu. Bu nedenle ince pabuçlar giyebiliyorlardı. Nedense bizim ince pabuçlarımız, hemen nasır yapıyordu ayaklarımızda; üstelik bulutların yağmuruna ve sokakların tozuna dayanmıyordu. Bizler, birer zengin karikatürü gibi dolaşıyorduk ortalarda. ( Onlar görünmeden dolaşıyorlardı.) Ayakkabılardan nasırlarımız, gömleklerden kıllarımız, daracık pantalonlarımızdan mendillerimiz ve paralarımız ve cep defterlerimiz fırlıyordu. Ayakkabılarımızın burnu taşlara takılıyordu. Onlar, kapıdan arabaya, arabadan kapıya, rıhtımdan motora bir rüya gibi kayarak gidiyorlardı. Sanki bir tünelin içinde, bize görünmeden dolaşıyorlardı." - Author: Oğuz Atay

Quotes About Wild Love

"Never love a wild thing, Mr. Bell, Holly advised him. That was Docs mistake. He was always lugging home wild things. A hawk with a hurt wing. One time it was a full-grown bobcat with a broken leg. But you cant give your heart to a wild thing: the more you do, the stronger they get. Until theyre strong enough to run into the woods. Or fly into a tree. Then a taller tree. Then the sky. Thats how youll end up, Mr. Bell. If you let yourself love a wild thing. Youll end up looking at the sky.""Shes drunk," Joe Bell informed me. "Moderately," Holly confessed....Holly lifted her martini. "Lets wish the Doc luck, too," she said, touching her glass against mine. "Good luck: and believe me, dearest Doc -- its better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place; so vague. Just a country where the thunder goes and things disappear." - Author: Truman Capote

Quotes About Mississippi State

"For all this talk about us being a nation at war with child abuse, and for all the media hype about witch-hunts and false allegations — and dont ever let anyone use the word witch-hunts about this; there were no witches — the fact remains that in 1994, it is extremely difficult to come forward with allegations of sexual abuse. And the external forces of denial are almost overwhelming. If a case as verified as mine meets with denial, I dread to think about the experience of people who dont have the kind of corroboration that I do. And I really worry that were getting close to a point where its going to be impossible to prosecute child molesters, because we dont believe children, and now we dont believe adults. (Cheit "Paper presented at the Mississippi Statewide Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect" Jackson, April 29 1994.)" - Author: Ross Cheit
