Famous quotes containing the words saul bellow, bellow and/or saul:

    Any artist should be grateful for a naïve grace which puts him beyond the need to reason elaborately.
    Saul Bellow (b. 1915)

    In the greatest confusion there is still an open channel to the soul. It may be difficult to find because by midlife it is overgrown, and some of the wildest thickets that surround it grow out of what we describe as our education. But the channel is always there, and it is our business to keep it open, to have access to the deepest part of ourselves.
    —Saul Bellow (b. 1915)

    Saul was very angry, for this saying displeased him. He said, -They have ascribed to David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed thousands; what more can he have but the kingdom? So Saul eyed David from that day on.
    Bible: Hebrew, 1 Samuel 18:8-9.
