William Faulkner

William Faulkner

American writer and Nobel Prize laureate from Oxford, Mississippi
So, never be afraid. Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion, against injustice and lying and greed. If you, not just you in this room tonight, but in all the thousands of other rooms like this one about the world today and tomorrow and next week, will do this, not as a class or classes, but as individuals, men and women, you will change the earth.More William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
All of us have failed to match our dream of perfection. I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible. If I could write all my work again, I'm convinced I could do it better. This is the healthiest condition for an artist. That's why he keeps working, trying again: he believes each time that this time he will do it, bring it off. Of course he won't.More William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We have to start teaching ourselves not to be afraid.More William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When I was a boy I first learned how much better water tastes when it has set a while in a cedar bucket. Warmish-cool, with a faint taste like the hot July wind in Cedar trees smells.More William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is as though the space between us were time: an irrevocable quality. It is as though time, no longer running straight before us in a diminishing line, now runs parallel between us like a looping string, the distance being the doubling accretion of the thread an not the interval between.More William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
