Chronology Quotations

I write in longhand and assemble lots of notes, and then I try to collate them into a coherent chronology. It's like groping along in the dark. I like writing and find it challenging, but I don't find it easy.
Joyce Carol Oates

'Wolf Hall' attempts to duplicate not the historian's chronology but the way memory works: in leaps, loops, flashes.
Hilary Mantel

Ashwin Sanghi

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I am strongly of the opinion that chronology is very important. The great arc of time is what children are wired for.
