Literary Work

Famous quotes containing the words literary and/or work:

    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)

    Grandiosity lessens as work proceeds.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
