Quotes for Thought

Bernard DeVoto: "Finnegan's Wake may indeed return to the reader who has mastered it rewards that justify his effort. But there is a basic paradox in requiring any reader of fiction to 'master' a novel as he would master geometry, a foreign language, or the law of torts. There will always be readers who refuse."

D.W. Griffith: "Art is always revolutionary, always explosive and sensational."

Reader, you're so witty and cute! Hanging around the bistro dropping witty (albeit meaningless) asides and bon mots to anyone who stops by. An irrelevant and very very tired artistic butterfly.
