Famous quotes containing the words margaret atwood and/or atwood:

    Everyone thinks writers must know more about the inside of the human head, but that is wrong. They know less, that’s why they write. Trying to find out what everyone else takes for granted.
    Margaret Atwood (b. 1939)

    I’ve never understood why people consider youth a time of freedom and joy. It’s probably because they have forgotten their own.
    —Margaret Atwood (b. 1939)
