Famous quotes containing the word erratic:

    Success is an absurd, erratic thing. She arrives when one least expects her and after she has come may depart again almost because of a whim.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)

    He was as erratic but as inevitable as the weather.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    If behind the erratic gunfire of the press the author felt that there was another kind of criticism, the opinion of people reading for the love of reading, slowly and unprofessionally, and judging with great sympathy and yet with great severity, might this not improve the quality of his work? And if by our means books were to become stronger, richer, and more varied, that would be an end worth reaching.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)
