Citáty Rita Mae Brown

„The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they're okay, then it's you.“

—  Rita Mae Brown
Disputed, Many sources attribute this quote to Brown without giving a specific reference to her writings. The earliest located is the following variation from p. 47 of Musgrave Landing: Musings on the Writing Life by Susan Musgrave (1994), which Musgrave quotes as "Rita Mae Brown's warning": "If you become the kind of writer who calls forth heated emotional states, be careful. There are a lot of unbalanced people out there. The statistics on insanity are that one out of every four people is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they're okay, then it's got to be you."

„Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.“

—  Rita Mae Brown, Alma Mater
Brown may have used this quote in 2001 but it was it in a 365 day "Quote" calendar in 1994.

„I think the reason I choose the comic approach so often is because it's harder, therefore affording me the opportunity to show off.“

—  Rita Mae Brown
Starting from Scratch (1989), Context: I think the reason I choose the comic approach so often is because it's harder, therefore affording me the opportunity to show off. Also, a comic vision is my natural world view, but I've grown up in spite of myself and I can pass the comic twist if it detracts from what the characters need. Yes, the life of a saint is hard.
