“If you are going to be underestimated by people who speak more rapidly, the temptation is to speak slowly and strategically and outwit them.”
Doris Betts

“Often our students see nothing about religious faith except the lowest common denominator. They see nothing but TV evangelists and fools, and it doesn't occur to them that intelligent people might find this religious business worth living their lives by.”

“[when]asked, “What should I do if I want to become a writer?”
“Well,” Doris said, with that steely twinkle in her dark eyes, “My best advice for

make a wonderful life.”
Doris Betts

“Substitute 'damn' every time you're inclined to write 'very;' your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.”
