Famous quotes containing the words introduced, maugham and/or edited:

    I introduced her to Elena, and in that life-quickening atmosphere of a big railway station where everything is something trembling on the brink of something else, thus to be clutched and cherished, the exchange of a few words was enough to enable two totally dissimilar women to start calling each other by their pet names the very next time they met.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    He did not live, he observed life from a window, and too often was inclined to content himself with no more than what his friends told him they saw when they looked out of a window.... In the end the point of Henry James is neither his artistry nor his seriousness, but his personality, and this was curious and charming and a trifle absurd.
    —W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965)

    The New Yorker will be the magazine which is not edited for the old lady from Dubuque.
    Harold W. Ross (1892–1951)
