Famous quotes containing the words writer and/or head:

    In this century the writer has carried on a conversation with madness. We might almost say of the twentieth-century writer that he aspires to madness. Some have made it, of course, and they hold special places in our regard. To a writer, madness is a final distillation of self, a final editing down. It’s the drowning out of false voices.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)

    Come, cuddle your head on my shoulder, dear,
    Your head like the golden-rod,
    And we will go sailing away from here
    To the beautiful land of Nod.
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1855–1919)
