Theodore Dreiser
b. 7-27-1871; Terre Haute, IN
d. 12-28-1945; Hollywood, CA

Novelist and journalist Theodore Dreiser pioneered the naturalist school where literary situations that more closely resemble studies of nature. His characters, like Sister Carrie, are memorable for their persistance against all obstacles rather than their moral choices.

FYI - Theodore's older brother was songwriter Paul Dresser.

Theodore Dreiser quotes ~
• “In order to have wisdom we must have ignorance.”
• “Art is the stored honey of the human soul, gathered on wings of misery and travail.”
• “Let no one underestimate the need of pity. We live in a stony universe whose hard, brilliant forces rage fiercely.”
• “I believe in the compelling power of love. I do not understand it. I believe it to be the most fragrant blossom of all this thorny existence.”

John Dryden was a poet and playwright who so influenced Restoration England that the period is known in “literary circles as the ‘Age of Dryden’”.

Dryden was a literary foe of playwright Thomas Shadwell.

John Dryden quotes ~
• “Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten.” (peace & justice)
• “Beware the fury of a patient man.”
• “Dancing is the poetry of the foot.”
• “Death in itself is nothing; but we fear to be we know not what, we know not where.”
• “Genius must be born, and never can be taught.”
• “He has not learned the first lesson of life who does not every day surmount a fear.”
• “Only man clogs his happiness with care, destroying what is with thoughts of what may be.”
• “Shame on the body for breaking down while the spirit perseveres.” (aging & maturity posters)
