Famous quotes containing the word readers:
“There is no luck in literary reputation. They who make up the final verdict upon every book are not the partial and noisy readers of the hour when it appears; but a court as of angels, a public not to be bribed, not to be entreated, and not to be overawed, decides upon every mans title to fame. Only those books come down which deserve to last.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Write to the point: say immediately what you want to say most, even if it doesnt come first. There are three reasons for doing this. First, you will then have said it, even if nothing else gets said. Second, your readers will then have read it, even if they read no more. Third, having said it, you are likely to have to say something more, because you will have to explain and justify what you chose to say.”
—Bill Stott (b. 1940)
“This hard work will always be done by one kind of man; not by scheming speculators, nor by soldiers, nor professors, nor readers of Tennyson; but by men of endurancedeep-chested, long- winded, tough, slow and sure, and timely.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
