Famous quotes containing the word editor:

    An editor is someone who separates the wheat from the chaff and then prints the chaff.
    Adlai Stevenson (1900–1965)

    As for the herd of newspapers and magazines, I do not chance to know an editor in the country who will deliberately print anything which he knows will ultimately and permanently reduce the number of his subscribers. They do not believe that it would be expedient. How then can they print truth?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    For a long time I was reporter to a journal, of no very wide circulation, whose editor has never yet seen fit to print the bulk of my contributions, and, as is too common with writers, I got only my labor for my pains. However, in this case my pains were their own reward.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
