Edna Ferber Quote: “There are only two kinds of people in the world that really count. One kind’s wheat and the other kind’s emeralds.”

Edna Ferber Quote: “If men ever discovered how tough women actually are, they would be scared to death.”

Edna Ferber Quote: “Only amateurs say that they write for their own amusement. Writing is not an amusing occupation. It is a combination of ditch-digging, mountain-climbing, treadmill and childbirth. Writing may be interesting, absorbing, exhilarating, racking, relieving. But amusing? Never!”
Edna Ferber Quote: “Writers should be read but not seen. Rarely are they a winsome sight.”
Edna Ferber Quote: “Writing, to be memorable, must be done in a state of impassioned serenity.”

Edna Ferber Quote: “I don’t know what it is that makes a writer go to his desk in his shut-off room day after day after year after year unless it is the sure knowledge that not to have done the daily stint of writing that day is infinitely more agonizing than to write.”
Edna Ferber Quote: “There is an interesting resemblance in the speeches of dictators, no matter what country they may hail from or what language they may speak.”
Edna Ferber Quote: “A whole roomful of Jews is like a charged battery. The vitality sparks seem to fly, and frequently the result is a short circuit.”
Edna Ferber Quote: “I like any place that isn’t here.”
Edna Ferber Quote: “I think in order to write really well and convincingly, one must be somewhat poisoned by emotion, dislike, displeasure, resentment, fault-finding, imagination, passionate remonstrance, a sense of injustice-they all make fine fuel.”
