Raymond Chandler

American novelist and screenwriter
A nice state of affairs when a man has to indulge his vices by proxy.More Raymond Chandler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In jail a man has no personality. He is a minor disposal problem and a few entries on reports. Nobody cares who loves or hates him, what he looks like, what he did with his life. Nobody reacts to him unless he gives trouble. Nobody abuses him. All that is asked of him is that he go quietly to the right cell and remain quiet when he gets there. There is nothing to fight against, nothing to be mad at. The jailers are quiet men without animosity or sadism. All this stuff you read about men yelling and screaming, beating against the bars, running spoons along them, guards rushing in with clubs -- all that is for the big house. A good jail is one of the quietest places in the world. Life in jail is in suspension.More Raymond Chandler quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not a fragrant world.More Raymond Chandler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
An age which is incapable of poetry is incapable of any kind of literature except the cleverness of a decadence.More Raymond Chandler quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some days I feel like playing it smooth. Some days I feel like playing it like a waffle iron.More Raymond Chandler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
