F. Scott Fitzgerald quotes

F. Scott Fitzgerald
Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
No such thing as a man willing to be honest - that would be like a blind man willing to see.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
Advertising is a racket...its constructive contribution to humanity is exactly minus zero.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
It is sadder to find the past again and find it inadequate to the present than it is to have it elude you and remain forever a harmonious conception of memory.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
The test of a firstrate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-pr*** but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
Family quarrels are bitter things. They don't go by any rules. They're not like aches or wounds they're more like splits in the skin that won't heal because there's not enough material.
