Hellman, Lilian

  • But maybe half a lie is worse than a real lie.

  • Cynicism is an unpleasant way of saying the truth.

  • God forgives those who invent what they need.

  • I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions.

  • I like people who refuse to speak until they are ready to speak.

  • If I had to give young writers advice, I'd say don't listen to writers talking about writing.

  • It doesn't pay well to fight for what we believe in.

  • Lonely. I always thought loneliness meant alone, without people. It means something else.

  • Nothing you write, if you hope to be good, will ever come out as you first hoped.

  • People change and forget to tell each other.
