Famous quotes containing the words russell hoban, hoban and/or russell:

    Nothing to be done really about animals. Anything you do looks foolish. The answer isn’t in us. It’s almost as if we’re put here on earth to show how silly they aren’t.
    Russell Hoban (b. 1925)

    Language is an archeological vehicle ... the language we speak is a whole palimpsest of human effort and history.
    —Russell Hoban (b. 1925)

    There comes Poe, with his raven, like Barnaby Rudge,
    Three-fifths of him genius, and two-fifths sheer fudge.
    Who talks like a book of iambs and pentameters,
    In a way to make people of common sense damn metres,
    Who has written some things quite the best of their kind,
    But the heart somehow seems all squeezed out by the mind.
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
