Famous quotes containing the words william faulkner and/or faulkner:

    This was Pharaoh, direct descendent of our deity Amon, god of the sun, who rules the heavens as Pharaoh rules the earth. Again, he brought treasure, gold, and precious jewels taken from our enemies. For to Pharaoh riches were power and power was to be desired. And also again he brought many captives. For is it not by slaves that one becomes even richer and then has even more power?
    William Faulkner (1897–1962)

    Maybe the only thing worse than having to give gratitude constantly ... is having to accept it.
    —William Faulkner (1897–1962)
