A Publishers Rant Why I Hate The Body of Your Article

Famous quotes containing the words article, body, publishers, rant and/or hate:

    It is long ere we discover how rich we are. Our history, we are sure, is quite tame: we have nothing to write, nothing to infer. But our wiser years still run back to the despised recollections of childhood, and always we are fishing up some wonderful article out of that pond; until, by and by, we begin to suspect that the biography of the one foolish person we know is, in reality, nothing less than the miniature paraphrase of the hundred volumes of the Universal History.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    There is joy
    in all:
    in the hair I brush each morning,
    in the Cannon towel, newly washed,
    that I rub my body with each morning....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Do they [the publishers of Murphy] not understand that if the book is slightly obscure it is because it is a compression and that to compress it further can only make it more obscure?
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)

    All neighbourly content and easy talk are gone,
    But there’s no good complaining, for money’s rant is on,
    He that’s mounting up must on his neighbour mount
    And we and all the Muses are things of no account.
    They have schooling of their own but I pass their schooling by,
    What can they know that we know that know the time to die?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Our father presents an optional set of rhythms and responses for us to connect to. As a second home base, he makes it safer to roam. With him as an ally—a love—it is safer, too, to show that we’re mad when we’re mad at our mother. We can hate and not be abandoned, hate and still love.
    Judith Viorst (20th century)
