July Junque: Day 9

For anyone stumbling upon this blog, I decided to rumble around the junk store that is July. However I classed up the name - adding a "que" gives it some pizzazz. Today we shall contemplate a few quotes on literature courtesy of Wittypedia, edited by Des Machale

The dawn is a term for the early morning used by poets and other people who don't have to get up - Oliver Herford

I have read only one book in my life, and that is White Fang. It's so frightfully good I've never bothered to read another - Nancy Mitford

There are two ways of disliking poetry. One way is to dislike it, and the other is to read Pope - Oscar Wilde.

Always be nicer to writers younger than you, because they are the ones who will be writing about you - Cyril Connolly

Your life would not make a good book. Don't even try - Fran Lebowitz


  1. Good Ones! I'm glad I haven't read White Fang. I think saw the movie, though. Guess it didn't have the same impact. So far I don't know any younger old are you?

    1. I am 55 and getting older by the second.

  2. These are all great quotes! I'll have to remember to be nicer to younger writers!
