Happy Birthday…

“I find that most people know what a story is until they sit down to write one.”

“At its best our age is an age of searchers and discoverers, and at its worst, an age that has domesticated despair and learned to live with it happily.”

“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”

“Everywhere I go, I’m asked if I think the universities stifle writers. My opinion is that they don’t stifle enough of them. There’s many a best seller that could have been prevented by a good teacher.”

“Whenever I’m asked why Southern writers particularly have a penchant for writing about freaks, I say it is because we are still able to recognize one.”

Flannery O’Conner – whose birthday we remember on this date.

It seems there are far too few pictures available, of such an interesting writer…
