Edna Ferber
Quotations


A woman can look both moral and exciting--if she also looks as if it was quite a struggle.

Being an old maid is like death by drowning--a really delightful sensation after you have ceased struggling.

I am not belittling the brave pioneer men but the sunbonnet as well as the sombrero has helped to settle this glorious land of ours.

I think that in order to write really well and convincingly, one must be somewhat poisoned by emotion.

Men often marry their mothers.

Only amateurs say that they write for their own amusement. Writing is not an amusing occupation. It is a combination of ditch-digging, mountain-climbing, treadmill and childbirth. Writing may be interesting, absorbing, exhilarating, racking, relieving. But amusing? Never!

There are only two kinds of people in the world that really count. One kind's wheat and the other kind's emeralds.

You lose in the end unless you know how the wheel is fixed or can fix it yourself.
