Literature quotes

Robert Louis Stevenson

Camilo Jose Cela
Literature is the denunciation of the times in which one lives.

Joseph Heller
He knew everything about literature except how to enjoy it.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
The decline of literature indicates the decline of a nation.

Anatole France
The duty of literature is to note what counts, and to light up what is suited to the light. If it ceases to choose and to love, it becomes like a woman who gives herself without preference.

G K Chesterton
A good novel tells us the truth about its hero but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.

Woody Allen
Just don't take any class where you have to read BEOWULF.

Elizabeth Drew
The test of literature is, I suppose, whether we ourselves live more intensely for the reading of it
