Literary Birthday - 22 September
Happy Birthday, Fay Weldon, born 22 September 1931
Seven Quotes
Nothing happens, and nothing happens, and then everything happens.
The greatest things are accomplished by individual people, not by committees or companies.
Worry less about what other people think about you, and more about what you think about them.
Fortunately, there is more to life than death. There is for one thing, fiction. A thousand thousand characters to be sent marching out into the world to divert time from its forward gallop to the terrible horizon.
You end up as you deserve. In old age you must put up with the face, the friends, the health, and the children you have earned.
Young women especially have something invested in being nice people, and it’s only when you have children that you realise you’re not a nice person at all, but generally a selfish bully.
What you practice is what you manifest.
Weldon is an English author, essayist and playwright, whose work has been associated with feminism. Weldon has written more than 40 novels. She portrays contemporary women trapped by the patriarchal structure of British society.
