Famous quotes containing the word literature:

    The literature of women’s lives is a tradition of escapees, women who have lived to tell the tale.
    Phyllis Rose (b. 1942)

    I see journalists as the manual workers, the laborers of the word. Journalism can only be literature when it is passionate.
    Marguerite Duras (b. 1914)

    To me, literature is a calling, even a kind of salvation. It connects me with an enterprise that is over 2,000 years old. What do we have from the past? Art and thought. That’s what lasts. That’s what continues to feed people and given them an idea of something better. A better state of one’s feelings or simply the idea of a silence in one’s self that allows one to think or to feel. Which to me is the same.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
