Raymond Chandler

American novelist and screenwriter
I always find what I want. But when I find it, I don't want it any more.More Raymond Chandler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
So by all means let's have a television show quick and long, even if the commercial has to be delivered by a man in a white coat with a stethoscope hanging around his neck, selling ergot pills. After all the public is entitled to what it wants, isn't it? The Romans knew that and even they lasted four hundred years after they started to putrefy.More Raymond Chandler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Such is the brutalization of commercial ethics in this country that no one can feel anything more delicate than the velvet touch of a soft buck.More Raymond Chandler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There is something about the literary life that repels me, all this desperate building of castles on cobwebs, the long-drawn acrimonious struggle to make something important which we all know will be gone forever in a few years, the miasma of failure which is to me almost as offensive as the cheap gaudiness of popular success.More Raymond Chandler quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Hollywood is a showman's paradise. But showmen make nothing; they exploit what someone else has made. The publisher and the play producer are showmen too; but they exploit what is already made. The showmen of Hollywood control the making - and thereby degrade it. For the basic art of motion pictures is the screenplay; it is fundamental, without it there is nothing. Everything derives from the screenplay, and most of that which derives is an applied skill which, however adept, is artistically not in the same class with More Raymond Chandler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
