William Faulkner's Quotes on Hollywood and Art

Writers are useless, Hollywood betrays, etc.

By Uncategorized

From Indiewire.

1.) “Hollywood is a place where a man can get stabbed in the back while climbing a ladder.”

2.) “The artist doesn’t have time to listen to the critics. The ones who want to be writers read the reviews, the ones who want to write don’t have the time to read reviews.”

3.) “To me, all human behavior is unpredictable and, considering man’s frailty… and… the ramshackle universe he functions in, it’s… all irrational.”

4.) “The writer in America isn’t part of the culture of this country. He’s like a fine dog. People like him around, but he’s of no use.”

5.) “The writer’s only responsibility is to his art. He will be completely ruthless if he is a good one… If a writer has to rob his mother, he will not hesitate; the Ode on a Grecian Urn is worth any number of old ladies.”
