Happy Wednesday--Truth Quotations

Today's Writing Quotations (More about truth):

"Written truth is four-dimensional. If we consult it at the wrong time, or read it at the wrong pace, it is as empty and shapeless as a dress on a hook."--Robert Grudin

"Good writers define reality; bad ones merely restate it. A good writer turns fact into truth; a bad writer will, more often than not, accomplish the opposite."--Edward Albee

"Put it before them briefly so they will read it, clearly so they will appreciate it, picturesquely so they will remember it, and above all, accurately so they will be guided by its light."--Joseph Pulitzer

"Imaginative literature comes closer than other to being able to give an impression of truth."--John Hersey

"If an ordinary person is silent, it may be a tactical maneuver. If a writer is silent, he is lying."--Jaroslav Seifert

"What is laid down, ordered, factual is never enough to embrace the whole truth; life always spills over the rim of ever cup."--Boris Pasternak

"In the spider web of facts, many a truth is strangled."--Paul Eldridge

"It is our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top."--Virginia Woolf

"Facts and truth don't have much to do with each other."--Calvin Trillin

Until this time next time. See you in print,

Linda Della Donna
