Fortune has dealt with me rather too well. I have known little struggle, not much poverty, many generosities. Now and then I have, for my books or myself, been somewhat warmly denounced -- there was one good pastor in California who upon reading my Elmer Gantry desired to lead a mob and lynch me, while another holy man in the state of Maine wondered if there was no respectable and righteous way of putting me in jail.More Sinclair Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Life is hard and astonishingly complicated.... No one great reform will make it easy. Most of us who work -- or want to work -- will always have trouble or discontent. So we must learn to be calm, and train all our faculties, and make others happy.More Sinclair Lewis quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Pugnacity is a form of courage, but a very bad form.More Sinclair Lewis quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
