novelists

okay...so i've been looking for some quotes by famous novelists. i found out that the name of my bible study group for the summer is the "novelists" so i've been thinking of cool ways i can decorate the room. i've found a lot of really cool quotes from famous writers, but not all are appropriate. i used to have a book that had a lot of quotes, but i can't seem to locate it. so anybody have any favorite quotes by writers or ideas i could use? i'd appreciate the help.

what type of quotes are you looking for?
what do you already have?

well...any quotes from famous writers/novelists. i'm trying to stay away from stuff from poets because they're not really "novelists." really just any good quotes that would be appropriate to put on the wall of a bible study room.

i found this page when i was looking for a movie quote... don't know how helpful it will be in a generic search, but it might help some...

happy hunting... oh - if you're looking for something specific - i have a dictionary of quotations - but it's kind of outdated and i don't know how helpful it will be... but i'll look in it and let you know...

i wonder if i'll get to have a bible study group, too... what if i was the novelist group too?? i hope it works out!!!
