Gertrude Stein (1874-1946)

"Let me listen to me and not to them."

"It is always a mistake to be plain-spoken."

"There ain't no answer. There ain't going to be any answer. There never has been an answer. That's the answer."

"I have always noticed that in portraits of really great writers the mouth is always firmly closed."

"Writing and reading is to me synonymous with existing."

"Silent gratitude isn't much use to anyone."
