Lillian Hellman

Cynicism is an unpleasant way of saying the truth.

God forgives those who invent what they need.

I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions.

Lonely. I always thought loneliness meant alone, without people. It means something else.

Nothing you write, if you hope to be good, will ever come out as you first hoped.

People change and forget to tell each other.
