Text Quotes
There was no one, when I was in school, who talked about going in and blowing up students. The teachers were very stern and hateable, but nobody ever mentioned murder  (Barry Hannah Quotes) When you’re not involved, other people’s unhappiness seems to be about the funniest damn thing on earth because you think you can solve it, that you are God, that you are above this, and that their unhappiness is just such useless toil and agony. If it’s you, it ceases to be a comedy  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I never pulled a loaded pistol on anybody, but it got around that I did. It got turned into lore. It’s a myth. There’s so much bad gun stuff  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I don’t write under the ghost of Faulkner. I live in the same town and find his life and work inspiring, but that’s it. I have a motorcycle and tool along the country lanes. I travel at my own speed  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I wanted very much to be Miles Davis when I was a boy, but without the practice. It just looked like an endless road  (Barry Hannah Quotes) Children will listen to anything elders say to survive, and if you grew up without an elder telling you there was a God, what did your parents say to you  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I hate to be fatalistic about it, but alcoholism, it’s just in your genes. We had some of it in my family, and it just got me  (Barry Hannah Quotes) The alcohol had the code and mystery about it as a writer’s drug, but I’m glad that’s been debunked. But the trouble with the drinking, much as I hate to admit it, is it helped the work  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I always intended to be light and open. I misjudged the American audience  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I don’t really care about plot; I want to have a page-turner in a different kind of way  (Barry Hannah Quotes) My stories do have plot. They’re not just scattered language; they’re controlled, toward an end  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I wouldn’t buy somebody’s album on a dare if they called him a musician’s musician. I don’t write to be a writer’s writer. I don’t want to be like the little-magazine writer  (Barry Hannah Quotes) The wild stuff is all so overrated. Drinking, you don’t feel good all the time. There’s a lot of down, a lot of misery  (Barry Hannah Quotes) The first two drinks were always wonderfully liberating. You think better. You’re braver, and you’ll say anything. If you could just hang in there with two or three, it’d be beautiful. The trouble was I couldn’t  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I had absolute freedom to create things on my own and in silence. No rush, the artificial rush by media. Certainly no rush to grow up. We had plenty of boyhood, plenty of girlhood  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I hate editing. I love to write, but I hate to reread my stuff. To revise.  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I wouldn’t be happy had I only been a teacher, if all I had done was help young people, frankly. I don’t get nearly the joy teaching as I do out of creation.  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I never pulled a loaded pistol on anybody, but it got around that I did. It got turned into lore. It’s a myth. There’s so much bad gun stuff.  (Barry Hannah Quotes) The wild stuff is all so overrated. Drinking, you don’t feel good all the time. There’s a lot of down, a lot of misery.  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I don’t really care about plot; I want to have a page-turner in a different kind of way  (Barry Hannah Quotes) A writer’s job is to destroy and then to build the thing back up again by a chosen means  (Barry Hannah Quotes) You need to see a bit of hell now and then. That, and great joy  (Barry Hannah Quotes) Literature is the history of the soul  (Barry Hannah Quotes) Love and despair go hand in hand  (Barry Hannah Quotes) What a bog and labyrinth the human essence is... We are all overbrained and overemotioned  (Barry Hannah Quotes) You’ve got to lie to stay halfway interested in yourself  (Barry Hannah Quotes) My best stories come out of nowhere, with no concern for form at all  (Barry Hannah Quotes) Time is what makes good stories. Much has been cooking for a long time, and at last finds an out in narration one day. That’s a supreme joy. And why the characters keep showing up  (Barry Hannah Quotes) I was always kind of florid. And full of rhetoric. That was my flaw. My whole time writing, I’ve had to work against that because it can be a wrecking posture  (Barry Hannah Quotes) The point is to strip down, get protestant, then even more naked. Walk over scorched bricks to find your own soul. Your heart a searching dog in the rubble  (Barry Hannah Quotes)
