Norman Mailer

Norman Mailer

American writer and journalist
I don't trust compliments. I've been getting them for years. Sometimes I deserve them, sometimes I didn't. But generally when people give you compliments there's one of two things wrong with them. Either they're false, or what's worse is they're sincere. They really mean the compliment. And then they're offering you their loyalty. And I'm kind of a stingy... Well, I don't necessarily want to give all that loyalty back. So either way, let's skip the compliments.More Norman Mailer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I never saw love as luck, as that gift from the gods which put everything else in place, and allowed you to succeed. No, I saw love as reward. One could find it only after one's virtue, or one's courage, or self-sacrifice, or generosity, or loss, has succeeded in stirring the power of creation.More Norman Mailer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Every time a story about me appears in a newspaper, I am injured professionally.More Norman Mailer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
