Nelson Algren
Quotations


Never play cards with a man called Doc. Never eat at a place called Mom's. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own.

The avocation of assessing the failures of better men can be turned into a comfortable livelihood, providing you back it up with a Ph.D.

It is strange how fragile this man-creature is.....in one second he's just garbage. Garbage, that's all.

I don't recommend being a bachelor, but it helps if you want to write.

(Chicago is) the only major city in the country where you can easily buy your way out of a murder rap.

Yet once you've come to be part of this particular patch, you'll never love another. Like loving a woman with a broken nose, you may well find lovelier lovelies. But never a lovely so real.
