Sir Walter Scott

Famous quotes containing the words walter and/or scott:

    With the single exception of Homer, there is no eminent writer, not even Sir Walter Scott, whom I can despise so entirely as I despise Shakespear when I measure my mind against his.... But I am bound to add that I pity the man who cannot enjoy Shakespear. He has outlasted thousands of abler thinkers, and will outlast a thousand more.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    The faces of most American women over thirty are relief maps of petulant and bewildered unhappiness.
    —F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
