Norman Mailer Quotes:

  • “Writing books is the closest men ever come to childbearing.”

  • “Any war that requires the suspension of reason as a necessity for support is a bad war.”

  • “Poems should be like pins which prick the skin of boredom and leave a glow equal in its pride to the gate of the sadist who stuck the pin and walked away”

  • “Every moment of one’s existence one is growing into more or retreating into less. One is always living a little more or dying a little bit.”

Norman Kingsley Mailer was an American novelist, journalist, essayist, playwright, activist, film-maker and actor. In a career spanning over six decades, Mailer had 11 best-selling books, at least one in each of the seven decades after World War II—more than any other post-war American writer. Wikipedia
