Famous quotes containing the words chandler and/or joan:

    When a book, any sort of book, reaches a certain intensity of artistic performance it becomes literature. That intensity may be a matter of style, situation, character, emotional tone, or idea, or half a dozen other things. It may also be a perfection of control over the movement of a story similar to the control a great pitcher has over the ball.
    —Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    And that good Joan whom Englishmen
    At Rouen doomed and burned her there,—
    Mother of God, where are they then? . . .
    Francois Villon (1431–1465)
