Literary

Famous quotes containing the word literary:

    There are in me, in literary terms, two distinct characters: one who is taken with roaring, with lyricism, with soaring aloft, with all the sonorities of phrase and summits of thought; and the other who digs and scratches for truth all he can, who is as interested in the little facts as the big ones, who would like to make you feel materially the things he reproduces.
    Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880)

    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)

    Carlyle, to adopt his own classification, is himself the hero as literary man.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
