TOP 25 QUOTES BY LILLIAN HELLMAN (of 99) | A-Z Quotes

If I had to give young writers advice, I would say don’t listen to writers talking about writing or themselves.”   —   Lillian Hellman

(A great reason for NOT looking at the the author!  I completely ignored/didn’t see? the first D, and decided HE had to be WILLIAM someone!  This meant that I had the T as the M, instead of the N.  Of course, I caught/corrected myself, but it seemed to take me a lot of time to see THEMSELVES, and especially WRITERS!  I only have myself to blame, as I always hold out on filling in the T‘s and the E‘s until the very end.  It generally helps in prolonging the fun!  We’ve had Lillian Hellman before, but I went off on an interesting tangent, looking up a movie that she wrote called “The Chase”.  Made in 1966, it stars Marlon Brando, a very young Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, Angie Dickinson, E.G. Marshall and Robert Duvall.   There’s also an interesting cast of lesser characters, including Marlon’s sister, Jocelyn!  Now, I want to see this movie!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
