Max Lerner
Jim Bishop Quotes
A good writer is not, per se, a good book critic. No more so than a good drunk is automatically a good bartender.
Jim Bishop

Jim Bishop

It is difficult to live in the present, ridiculous to live in the future and impossible to live in the past. Nothing is as far away as one minute ago.
Jim Bishop

It is impossible to read for pleasure from something to which you are both father and mother, born in such travail that the writer despises the thing that enslaved him.
Jim Bishop

Nobody understands anyone 18, including those who are 18.
Jim Bishop

Scoops of mint ice cream with chips of chocolate cows.
Jim Bishop

The morning after a death, we learned an avalanche of goodies about the renowned, some of which persuaded the reader that he should have cultivated the deceased in life.
Jim Bishop

The reporter is the daily prisoner of clocked facts. On all working days, he is expected to do his best in one swift swipe at each story.
Jim Bishop

Watching your daughter being collected by her date feels like handing over a million dollar Stradivarius to a gorilla.
Jim Bishop

When you read about a car crash in which two or three youngsters are killed, do you pause to dwell on the amount of love and treasure and patience parents poured into bodies no longer suitable for open caskets?
