Eudora Welty quotes

On the daring life of writers..."All serious daring starts from within."

On her keen sense of Southern dialect..."Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them." (from One Writer's Beginnings)

On photography...Eudora claimed that her love of photography taught her that "life doesn't stand still."

Her rumored last words, when the doctor asked her if he could do anything for her on her deathbed..."No, but thank you for inviting me to the party."
