Published

Famous quotes containing the word published:

    What has influenced my life more than any other single thing has been my stammer. Had I not stammered I would probably ... have gone to Cambridge as my brothers did, perhaps have become a don and every now and then published a dreary book about French literature.
    W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965)

    Each class of society has its own requirements; but it may be said that every class teaches the one immediately below it; and if the highest class be ignorant, uneducated, loving display, luxuriousness, and idle, the same spirit will prevail in humbler life.
    —First published in Girls’ Home Companion (1895)

    I saw the best minds of my generation
    Reading their poems to Vassar girls,
    Being interviewed by Mademoiselle.
    Having their publicity handled by professionals.
    When can I go into an editorial office
    And have my stuff published because I’m weird?
    I could go on writing like this forever . . .
    Louis Simpson (b. 1923)
