Gertrude Stein

American writer
A real failure does not need an excuse. It is an end in itself.More Gertrude Stein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A writer must always try to have a philosophy and he should also have a psychology and a philology and many other things. Without a philosophy and a psychology and all these various other things he is not really worthy of being called a writer. I agree with Kant and Schopenhauer and Plato and Spinoza and that is quite enough to be called a philosophy. But then of course a philosophy is not the same thing as a style.More Gertrude Stein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are always the same age inside.More Gertrude Stein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
No one is ahead of his time, it is only that the particular variety of creating his time is the one that his contemporaries who are also creating their own time refuse to accept.... For a very long time everybody refuses and then almost without a pause almost everybody accepts. In the history of the refused in the arts and literature the rapidity of the change is always startling.More Gertrude Stein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everybody knows if you are too careful you are so occupied in being careful that you are sure to stumble over something.More Gertrude Stein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
