Famous quotes containing the words fannie hurst and/or hurst:

    The creative writer is usually captive to his next book.
    Fannie Hurst (1889–1968)

    Crushed to earth and rising again is an author’s gymnastic. Once he fails to struggle to his feet and grab his pen, he will contemplate a fact he should never permit himself to face: that in all probability books have been written, are being written, will be written, better than anything he has done, is doing, or will do.
