Norman Mailer (b. January 31): “Style is character.”

31 Jan


“A really good style comes only when a man has become as good as he can be. Style is character. A good style cannot come from a bad, undisciplined character… I think good style is a matter of rendering out of oneself all the cupidities, all the cripplings, all the vague desires. And then I think one has to develop one’s physical grace.”

~ Norman Mailer, b. 31 January 1923
