William Faulkner

American writer and Nobel Prize laureate from Oxford, Mississippi
. . .in August in Mississippi there’s a few days somewhere about the middle of the month when suddenly there’s a foretaste of fall, it’s cool, there’s a lambence, a soft, a luminous quality to the light, as though it came not from just today but from back in the old classic times. It might have fauns and satyrs and the gods and---from Greece, from Olympus in it somewhere. It lasts just for a day or two, then it’s gone. . .the title reminded me of that time, of a luminosity older than our Christian civilizatioMore William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The writer's only responsibility is to his art.More William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn't know why they choose him and he's usually too busy to wonder why. He is completely amoral in that he will rob, borrow, beg, or steal from anybody and everybody to get the work done. The writer's only responsibility is to his art.More William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Be scared. You can't help that. But don't be afraid.More William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It used to be I thought of death as a man something like Grandfather a friend of his a kind of private and particular friend like we used to think of Grandfather's desk not to touch it not even to talk loud in the room where it was.More William Faulkner quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
