Short-story Quotes

Quote of the Day

Life is too short for a long story.
View quotes by Mary Wortley Montagu

In Hollywood if you're good looking, tall, have OK teeth and nice skin, the odds of being successful are great. If you're short and fat, it's a different story. But as long as you look like a leading man type, half your job is done already.
View quotes by John Corbett

A short story or a novelette that appears first in a magazine is inescapably doomed to be hoarded with others of its kind until there are enough of them to be brought out in a collected volume, which in turn we propose to keep reprinting at intervals so long as anyone will buy it.
View quotes by Leslie Charteris

I write about five thousand words a day, when working on a book, about three thousand a day if I'm writing a short story. I take long periods off between projects, when I read a lot, garden, and think about the next book or stories.
View quotes by Eric Brown

People are fascinated when they hear the railroad story... They want a story. It gives the name substance, provides a connection
View quotes by Susan Ward

This story is about truth, beauty, freedom; but above all things, this story is about love
View quotes by Moulin Rouge

'It was a story about me appearing on TOTP with my flies undone, and I joked to someone that no one noticed because my manhood was only 2 inches long. The next thing I knew there was an article with a headline 'My todger's a titch.' But I'd like to reassure all the girls out there that the story is a load of rubbish.'
View quotes by Kevin Simm

All the best stories are but one story in reality - the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape.
View quotes by Arthur Christopher Benson

Being an actor is an extension of telling a story and I loved story telling as a child.
View quotes by Amanda Burton

Man is eminently a storyteller. His search for a purpose, a cause, an ideal, a mission and the like is largely a search for a plot and a pattern in the development of his life story - a story that is basically without meaning or pattern.
View quotes by Eric Hoffer

As our life is very short, so it is very miserable, and therefore it is well it is short
View quotes by Bishop Jeremy Taylor

But yet not cloy thy lips with loathed satiety, but rather famish them amid their plenty, making them red and pale with fresh variety, ten kisses short as one, one long as twenty! a summer´s day will seem an hour but short, being wasted in such time beguiling sport. (venus´n´adonis, poem)
View quotes by William Shakespeare

An idealist believes the short run doesn't count. A cynic believes the long run doesn't matter. A realist believes that what is done or left undone in the short run determines the long run.
View quotes by Sydney Harris
