Creative Quotations from . . .
Edna Ferber
(1885-1968) born on
Aug 15
US novelist. Her best-selling novels included "So Big: Show Boat," 1926, "Giant," 1952.
         
   
F
Writers should be read but not seen. Rarely are they a winsome sight.

R
I think that in order to write really well and convincingly, one must he somewhat poisoned by emotion. Dislike, displeasure, resentment, faultfinding, imagination, passionate remonstrance, a sense of injustice -- they all make fine fuel.
A
Big doesn't necessarily mean better. Sunflowers aren't better than violets.
N
Only amateurs say that they write for their own amusement. Writing is not an amusing occupation. It is a combination of ditch-digging, mountain-climbing, treadmill and childbirth. . . . But amusing? Never.
K
Life can't ever really defeat a writer who is in love with writing, for life itself is a writer's lover until death -- fascinating, cruel, lavish, warm, cold, treacherous constant.
