Text Quotes
My guess [is] . . . that the great majority of Americans are saying they favor gun control when they really mean gun banishment. . . . I think the country has long been ready to restrict the use of guns, except for hunting rifles and shotguns, and now I think we’re prepared to get rid of the damned things entirely - the handguns, the semis and the automatics.  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Why, for example, do the great writers use anticipation instead of surprise? Because surprise is merely an instrument of the unusual, whereas anticipation of a consequence enlarges our understanding of what is happening  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Whatever you think matters - doesn’t. Follow this rule, and you will add decades to your life  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) The best in art and life comes from a center - something urgent and powerful, an idea or emotion that insists on its being. From that insistence, a shape emerges and creates its structure out of passion. If you begin with a structure, you have to make up the passion, and that’s very hard to do  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) The only reason I wanted ‘Making Toast’ as the title is that it is a simple gesture of moving on. Every morning there’s the bread and you make the toast and you start the day  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Every writing teacher gives the subliminal message, every time they teach: ‘Your life counts for something.’ In no other subject that I know of is that message given  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) If the sad truth be known, writers, being the misfits we are, probably ought not to belong to families in the first place. We simply are too self-interested, though we may excuse the flaw by calling it ‘focused.’  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Whatever brief delights it provides, mere strangeness in poetry and prose eventually leaves us cold, especially when we suspect the writer is stretching for effect to avoid the actual life before his eyes.  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) I think there must be something wrong with me as a writer. Because all my friends who are writers find reasons to hate everything about their day. But I just love writing. I love starting the day with language and seeing if I can make something of it.  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) The God I do believe in is the God who doesn’t care: James Joyce’s God who stands back, paring his fingernails.  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) When you have the goods, you don’t need to dress up what you’re writing  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) If you’re going to believe in God, if you’re going to take that leap of faith, as I do, then the God that seems the most comprehensible to me would be the God who set us spinning and said ‘Good luck.’  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Live in the past, but don’t remember too much  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) The problem with death is absence  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Friends are lights in winter; the older the friend, the brighter the light  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Anytime you make a person into something other than himself, you make a monster  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) What is the difference between grief and mourning? Mourning has company  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Only by moving in the direction you least trust can you be saved  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) There is nothing like a man for bringing out the animal in an animal  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) A library should be like a pair of open arms  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Remote control. Ingenious contradiction of terms. Fits like a handshake. Aims like a gun  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) One of the very important things that have to be learned around the time dying becomes a real prospect is to recognize those occasions when we have been useful in the world  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Slum kids die slowly, their lives eroded at so languid a pace that even they would have trouble tracing the disintegration. To the children of war death explodes like a car bomb  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) One senses, in all autobiography, a straining toward perfection, perfection of a kind that connects the individual with a cosmic pattern which, because it is perfect in itself, verifies that individuals own potential perfection  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Get rid of the guns. We had the Second Amendment that said you have the right to bear arms. I haven't seen the British really coming by my house looking for it. And besides, the right to bear arms is not an absolute right anyway, as New York's Sullivan Law proves. We talk about ourselves as a violent society, and some of that is right and some of it is claptrap. But I think if you took away the guns, and I mean really take away the guns, not what Congress is doing now, you would see that violent society diminish considerably  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) If a man spends enough time in a library, he may actually change his mind. I have seen it happen  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Children love to be alone because alone is where they know themselves, and where they dream  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) Time can be such a menace to a man. By this age do that; by that age do better  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) For those at home, as well as for those in battle, war is curiously disabling. The mere realization that one’s country is at war poisons the bloodstream, creates an incessant mood of worry that infiltrates even the most casual moments  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes) The trick in foraging for a tooth lost in coffee grounds is not to be misled by the clumps. The only way to be sure is to rub each clump between your thumb and index finger, which makes a mess of your hands  (Roger Rosenblatt Quotes)
