Famous quotes containing the word fiction:

    Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    The purpose of a work of fiction is to appeal to the lingering after-effects in the reader’s mind as differing from, say, the purpose of oratory or philosophy which respectively leave people in a fighting or thoughtful mood.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
