Literary

Famous quotes containing the word literary:

    I understood that all the material of a literary work was in my past life, I understood that I had acquired it in the midst of frivolous amusements, in idleness, in tenderness and in pain, stored up by me without my divining its destination or even its survival, as the seed has in reserve all the ingredients which will nourish the plant.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    The literary “fellow travelers” of the Revolution.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)

    Much of the wisdom of the world is not wisdom, and the most illuminated class of men are no doubt superior to literary fame, and are not writers.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
