Faulkner on Words

Saturday, February 7, 2009

"I had learned a little about writing from Soldier's Pay - how to approach language, words: not with seriousness so much as an essayist does, but with a kind of alert respect, as you approach dynamite; even with joy, as you approach women: perhaps with the same secretly unscrupulous intentions."

And if you know anything about Faulkner and women, you understand why no words were safe around him.
