Bellow Quotations

He who does not bellow the truth when he knows the truth makes himself the accomplice of liars and forgers.
Charles Peguy

I don't even like to talk about it. I hated being a number and not merely because I was a very small one. I let them bellow at me for just as long as it took me to find enough pluck to bellow back at them.
George Grosz

I had the idea in my twenties that a writer could immediately become the late Henry James. Henry James himself had to mature. Even Saul Bellow did.
Cynthia Ozick

At one point I would read nothing that was not by the great American Jews - Saul Bellow, Philip Roth - which had a disastrous effect of making me think I needed to write the next great Jewish American novel. As a ginger-haired child in the West of Ireland, that didn't work out very well, as you can imagine.
Kevin Barry

Saul Bellow never took my advice when he was my friend.
