A Publishers Rant Why I Hate The Body of Your Article

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

    I review novels to make money, because it is easier for a sluggard to write an article a fortnight than a book a year, because the writer is soothed by the opiate of action, the crank by posing as a good journalist, and having an airhole. I dislike it. I do it and I am always resolving to give it up.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)

    It is so much more difficult to live with one’s body than with one’s soul. One’s body is so much more exacting: what it won’t have it won’t have, and nothing can make bitter into sweet.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    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)

    But the hot hell that always in him burns,
    Though in mid Heaven, soon ended his delight,
    And tortures him now more, the more he sees
    Of pleasure not for him ordained. Then soon
    Fierce hate he recollects, and all his thoughts
    Of mischief, gratulating, thus excites:
    John Milton (1608–1674)
