"If during a decade a man does not change his mind on some things and develop new points of view, it is a pretty good sign that his mind is petrified and need no longer be accounted among the living."
Dobie quotes
"Great literature transcends its native land, but none that I know of ignores its soil."
"I'd rather starve and be independent than thrive on conformity. I'm not starving."

Dobie J. Frank quotes
"Conform and be dull."
Dobie J. Frank
"I have come to value liberated minds as the supreme good of life on earth."
J. Frank Dobie quotes
From the introductory comments to Dobie's Guide to Life and Literature of the Southwest: "Not copyright in 1942. Again not copyright in 1952. Anybody is welcome to help himself to any of it in any way."
J. Frank Dobie
"The average Ph.D. thesis is nothing but a transfer of bones from one graveyard to another...."
Dobie J. Frank quotes
"I rate censors, particularly those of church and state, as low as I rate character assassins; they often run together."
