Cyril Connolly Quotes: The More Books We Read The Clearer It

The More Books We Read, The Clearer It Becomes That The True Function Of A Writer Is To Produce A Masterpiece And That No Other Task Is Of Any Consequence. Obvious Though This Should Be, How Few Writers Will Admit It, Or Having Drawn The Conclusion, Will Be Prepared To Lay Aside The Piece Of Iridescent Mediocrity On Which They Have Embarked! Writers Always Hope That Their Next Book Is Going To Be Their Best, And Will Not Acknowledge That They Are Prevented By Their Present Way Of Life From Ever Creating Anything Different.
