Mary Jane Ward
“Any writer knows he has to pay for his compliments. As soon as he has said, Why, thank you, that's very generous of you, the other person clears his throat and dives into his own writing experiences.”
“When there's more sick ones than well ones, by golly the sick ones will lock the well ones up.”
Mary Jane Ward, U.S. writer
(1905 - 1981)
