Oil/plot

Famous quotes containing the words oil and/or plot:

    I bade, because the wick and oil are spent
    And frozen are the channels of the blood....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Morality for the novelist is expressed not so much in the choice of subject matter as in the plot of the narrative, which is perhaps why in our morally bewildered time novelists have often been timid about plot.
    Jane Rule (b. 1931)
