Category Books

Famous quotes containing the words books and/or category:

    No common-place is ever effectually got rid of, except by essentially emptying one’s self of it into a book; for once trapped in a book, then the book can be put into the fire, and all will be well. But they are not always put into the fire; and this accounts for the vast majority of miserable books over those of positive merit.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    I see no reason for calling my work poetry except that there is no other category in which to put it.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)
