William Faulkner quotes

William Faulkner
No one is without Christianity, if we agree on what we mean by that word. It is every individual's individual code of behavior by means of which he makes himself a better human being than his nature wants to be, if he followed his nature only. Whatever its symbol - cross or crescent or whatever - that symbol is man's reminder of his duty inside the human race.

William Faulkner
To live anywhere in the world today and be against equality because of race or color is like living in Alaska and being against snow.

William Faulkner
The last sound on the worthless earth will be two human beings trying to launch a homemade spaceship and already quarreling about where they are going next.

William Faulkner
There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it's the risk, the gamble. In any event it's a thing I need.

William Faulkner

William Faulkner
What's wrong with this world is, it's not finished yet. It is not competed to the point where man can put his final signature to the job and say, It is finished. We made it and it works.

William Faulkner
The past is never dead, it is not even past.

William Faulkner
It wasn't until the Nobel Prize that they really thawed out. They couldn't understand my books, but they could understand $30,000.
