Fiction Quotes

Four of the best book quotes about fiction
  1. #1
    “That’s what fiction is about, isn’t it, the selective transforming of reality? The twisting of it to bring out the essence?”
  2. #2
    “I thought of all those heroines of fiction who looked pretty when they cried, and what a contrast I must make with a blotched and swollen face, and red rims to my eyes.”
  3. #3
    “The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what Fiction means.”
  4. #4
    “Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
