Creative Quotations from . . .
Judith Rossner
(1935-2005) born on
Mar 31
US novelist. She is best known for her novel "Looking for Mr Goodbar," 1975.
         
   
F

"He always said she was smart, but their conversations were a mined field in which at any moment she might make the wrong verbal move and find her ignorance exploding in her face."
A
A lie was something that hadn't happened but might just as well have.
N
So often I heard people paying blind obeisance to change as though it had some virtue of its own. Change or we will die. Change or we will stagnate. Evergreens don't stagnate.
K
