Fiction quotes
Fiction
The life of man is the true romance, which when it is valiantly conduced, will yield the imagination a higher joy than any fiction.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Truth must necessarily be stranger than fiction, for fiction is the creation of the human mind and therefore congenial to it.

- G. K. Chesterton
Money doesn't mind if we say it's evil, it goes from strength to strength. It's a fiction, an addiction, and a tacit conspiracy.

- Amis, Martin
Its never too late in fiction or in life to revise.

- Nancy Thayer
ROMANCE, n. Fiction that owes no allegiance to the God of Things as They Are. In the novel the writer's thought is tethered to probability, as a domestic horse to the hitching-post, but in romance it ranges at will over the entire region of the imagination -- free, lawless, immune to bit and rein. Your novelist is a poor creature, as Carlyle might say -- a mere reporter. He may invent his characters and plot, but he must not imagine anything taking place that might not occur, albeit his entire narrative is candidly a lie. Why he imposes this hard condition on himself, and "drags at each remove a lengthening chain" of his own forging he can explain in ten thick volumes without illuminating by so much as a candle's ray the black profound of his own ignorance of the matter. There are great novels, for great writers have "laid waste their powers" to write them, but it remains true that far and away the most fascinating fiction that we have is "The Thousand and One Nights."

- Ambrose Bierce
A petty reason perhaps why novelists more and more try to keep a distance from journalists is that novelists are trying to write the truth and journalists are trying to write fiction.

- Greene, Graham
What you have to do is enter the fiction of America, enter America as fiction. It is, indeed, on this fictive basis that it dominates the world.

- Baudrillard, Jean
The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what Fiction means.

- Wilde, Oscar
A novel that does not uncover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral. Knowledge is the novel's only morality.

- Kundera, Milan
I didn't lie--I was writing fiction in my mouth.

- Homer Simpson
Truth is stranger than fiction; fiction has to make sense.

- Rosten, Leo
Truth is shorter than fiction.

- Irving Cohen
There are certain themes of which the interest is all-absorbing, but which are too entirely horrible for the purposes of legitimate fiction.

- Edgar Allan Poe
The reason that fiction is more interesting than any other form of literature, to those who really like to study people, is that in fiction the author can really tell the truth without humiliating himself.

- Roosevelt, Eleanor
The time-honored bread-sauce of the happy ending.

- James, Henry
Why shouldnt truth be stranger than fiction? Fiction, after all, has to make sense.

- Mark Twain
I write fiction and I'm told it's autobiography, I write autobiography and I'm told it's fiction, so since I'm so dim and they're so smart, let them decide what it is or it isn't.

- Roth, Philip
A novelist is, like all mortals, more fully at home on the surface of the present than in the ooze of the past.

- Nabokov, Vladimir
It's never too late, in fiction or in life, to revise.

- Nancy Thayer
The great majority of us are required to live a life of constant, systematic duplicity. Your health is bound to be affected if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike and rejoice at what bring you nothing but misfortune. Our nervous system isn't just a fiction, it's part of our physical body, and our soul exists in space and is inside us, like teeth in our mouth. It can't be forever violated with impunity.

- Boris Pasternak
