Anthony Powell
He fell in love with himself at first sight and it is a passion to which he has always remained faithful.
Powell quotes
Growing old's like being increasingly penalized for a crime you haven't committed.
People think because a novel's invented, it isn't true. Exactly the reverse is the case. Because a novel's invented, it is true. Biography and memoirs can never be wholly true, since they can't include every conceivable circumstance of what happened. The novel can do that. The novelist himself lays it down. His decision is binding.

Powell Anthony quotes
The whole idea of interviews is in itself absurd one cannot answer deep questions about what one's life was like one writes novels about it.
Powell Anthony
Self-love seems so often unrequited.
