John Updike

Was an American novelist, poet, short story writer, art critic, and literary critic.
What other sport holds out hope of improvement to a man or a woman over fifty? True, the pros begin to falter at around forty, but it is their putting nerves that go, not their swings. For a duffer like [me], the room for improvement is so vast that three lifetimes could be spent roaming the fiarways carving away at it, convinced that perfection lies just over the next rise. And that hope, perhaps, is the kindest bliss of all that golf bestows upon its devotees.More John Updike quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I love my government not least for the extent to which it leaves me alone.More John Updike quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
How sad, how strange, we make companions out of air and hurt them, so they will defy us, completing creation.More John Updike quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It seems to me the book has not just aesthetic values - the charming little clothy box of the thing, the smell of the glue, even the print, which has its own beauty. But there's something about the sensation of ink on paper that is in some sense a thing, a phenomenon rather than an epiphenomenon. I can't break the association of electric trash with the computer screen. Words on the screen give the sense of being just another passing electronic wriggle.More John Updike quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
