Anatole Broyard
A good book is never exhausted. It goes on whispering to you from the wall.
Broyard quotes
An aphorism is a generalization of sorts, and our present-day writers seem more at home with the particular.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.

Broyard Anatole quotes
It is one of the paradoxes of American literature that our writers are forever looking back with love and nostalgia at lives they couldn’t wait to leave.
Broyard Anatole
The contents of someone's bookcase are part of his history, like an ancestral portrait.
