Famous quotes containing the word journal:

    I think this journal will be disadvantageous for me, for I spend my time now like a spider spinning my own entrails.
    Mary Bokin Chesnut (1823–1886)

    How truly does this journal contain my real and undisguised thoughts—I always write it according to the humour I am in, and if a stranger was to think it worth reading, how capricious—insolent & whimsical I must appear!—one moment flighty and half mad,—the next sad and melancholy. No matter! Its truth and simplicity are its sole recommendations.
    Frances Burney (1752–1840)

    The Journal is not essentially a confession, a story about oneself. It is a Memorial. What does the writer have to remember? Himself, who he is when he is not writing, when he is living his daily life, when he alive and real, and not dying and without truth.
    Maurice Blanchot (b. 1907)
