Creative Quotations from . . .
Jim Bishop
(1907-1987) born on
Nov 21
US author, journalist. He was a syndicated columist for 27 years; wrote "The Day Lincoln was Shot," 1955 which sold over 3 million copies.
         
   
F
Books, I found, had the power to make time stand still, retreat or fly into the future.

R
The future is an opaque mirror. Anyone who tries to look into it sees nothing but the dim outlines of an old and worried face.
A
At 19, everything looks possible and tomorrow looks friendly.
N
A newspaper is lumber made malleable. It is ink made into words and pictures. It is conceived, born, grows up and dies of old age in a day.
K
A good writer is not, per se, a good book critic. No more so than a good drunk is automatically a good bartender.
