More Quotes from William Faulkner:


Between grief and nothing I will take grief.
William Faulkner

One of the saddest things is that the only thing that a man can do for eight hours a day, day after day, is work. You can't eat eight hours a day nor drink for eight hours a day nor make love for eight hours -- all you can do for eight hours is work. Which is the reason why man makes himself and everybody else so miserable and unhappy.
William Faulkner

I decline to accept the end of man.
William Faulkner

William Faulkner

A gentleman can live through anything.
William Faulkner

Memory believes before knowing remembers. Believes longer than recollects, longer than knowing even wonders.
William Faulkner
