Text Quotes
The response to my books from my East Coast friends has been wildly various, running the gamut from ‘bad’ to ‘very bad.’ (Is there another gamut?)  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Vladimir Nabokov was a writer who cared nothing for music and whose favorite sport was the pursuit, capture, and murder of butterflies. This explains many things; for example, the fact that Nabokov’s novels, for all their elegance and wit, resemble nothing so much as butterflies pinned to a board: pretty but dead; symmetrical but stiff  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The ideal kitchen-sink novel: Throw in everything but the kitchen sink. Then add the kitchen sink  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Too many American authors have a servile streak where their backbone should be. Where’s our latest Nobel laureate? More than likely you’ll find him in the Rose Garden kissing the First Lady’s foot  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Shakespeare wrote great poetry and preposterous plays. Who really cares, for example, which petty tyrant rules Milan? Or who succeeds to the throne of Denmark? Or why the barons ganged up on Richard II?  (Edward Abbey Quotes) In order to write a book, it is necessary to sit down (or stand up) and write. Therein lies the difficulty  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible. If there is a Kingdom of Heaven, it lies in music  (Edward Abbey Quotes) How did Haydn and Mozart produce such vast quantities of formally perfect art? They worked from a perfect formula. In music, Beethoven was the Great Emancipator  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Opera: I like it, except for all those howling sopranos and caterwauling tenors. (Why can’t tenors sing like men?)  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Mozart, striving for perfection, wrote the same symphony forty-one times. In his case, it worked. He wrote a perfect symphony  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Motherhood is an essential, difficult, and full-time job. Women who do not wish to be mothers should not have babies  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Science transcends mere politics. As recent history demonstrates, scientists are as willing to work for a Tojo, a Hitler, or a Stalin as for the free nations of the West  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Though I’ve lived in the rural West most of my life, I never once fell in love with a horse. Not once. Neither end  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Alaska is our biggest, buggiest, boggiest state. Texas remains our largest unfrozen state. But mountainous Utah, if ironed out flat, would take up more space on a map than either  (Edward Abbey Quotes) One of the pleasant things about small town life is that everyone, whether rich or poor, liked or disliked, has some kind of a role and place in the community. I never felt that living in a city - as I once did for a couple of years  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Be a half-assed crusader, a part-time fanatic. Don’t worry to much about the fate of the world. Saving the world is only a hobby. Get out there and enjoy the world, your girlfriend, your boyfriend, husbands wives; climb mountains, run rivers, get drunk, do whatever you want to do while you can, before it’s too late  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Anton Bruckner wrote the same symphony nine times, trying to get it just right. He failed  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Paradise is the here and now, the actual, tangible, dogmatically real Earth on which we stand. Yes, God bless America, the Earth upon which we stand  (Edward Abbey Quotes) WEALTH AND HOW TO ACHIEVE IT: Let us define the wealthy man as he who has everything he desires. How to reach that happy condition? Two ways  (Edward Abbey Quotes) I am delighted, one more time, by the daring of my species and the audacity of our flying machines. There is poetry and music in our technology, a beauty as touching as that of eagle, moss campion, raven or yonder limestone boulder shining under the Arctic sun  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Don’t talk to me about other worlds, separate realities, lost continents or invisible realms -- I know where I belong. Heaven is home. Utopia is here. Nirvana is now  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Art, science, philosophy, religion -- each offers at best only a crude simplification of actual living experience.  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The ready availability of suicide, like sex and alcohol, is one of life’s basic consolations  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The best American writers have come from the hinterlands -- Mark Twain, Theodore Dreiser, Jack London, Hemingway, Faulkner, Wolfe, Steinbeck. Most of them never even went to college.  (Edward Abbey Quotes) It is not the writer’s task to answer questions but to question answers. To be impertinent, insolent, and, if necessary, subversive.  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The sense of justice springs from self-respect; both are coeval with our birth. Children are born with an innate sense of justice; it usually takes twelve years of public schooling and four more years of college to beat it out of them.  (Edward Abbey Quotes) A mother’s sorrow is more true, honorable, and beautiful than the detachment of the sage  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Balance, that’s the secret. Moderate extremism. The best of both worlds.  (Edward Abbey Quotes) I don’t see how poetry can ever be easy... Real poetry, the thick, dense, intense, complicated stuff that lives and endures, requires blood sweat; blood and sweat are essential elements in poetry as well as behind it.  (Edward Abbey Quotes) One man alone can be pretty dumb sometimes, but for real bona fide stupidity, there ain’t nothin’ can beat teamwork.  (Edward Abbey Quotes)
