Edgar Quotes:

Edgar Allan Poe, I think he’s a brilliant poet. I was actually given a copy of his work when I was, like, 8 years old that was my grandfather’s, and I still carry it around with me.

Dove Cameron

My role models were Amelia Earhart and Eleanor Roosevelt, and my major crush was J. Edgar Hoover.

Shirley Temple

All my humor is based on destruction and despair. If the whole world were tranquil, without disease and violence, I’d be standing in the bread line – right in back of J. Edgar Hoover.

Lenny Bruce

Ajax is a multicultural club, and we have found that many talented immigrant players quit when they reach puberty. So we wanted to tackle this problem with someone from the same background who had come through it. And that was Edgar Davids. During one of our fights, I pointed that out to him. But it had nothing to do with his skin colour.

Johan Cruyff

When I first started reading poetry, all the poets I read – Edgar Allan Poe, Oliver Wendell Holmes, John Greenleaf Whittier – were rhyme poets. That’s what captured me.

Marv Levy

The sky was the color of Edgar Allan Poe’s pajamas.

Tom Robbins

My father was the first black Secret Service agent. He wanted to get into the FBI but J. Edgar Hoover, who was the head of the FBI, was a racist and he said we don’t want any black people.

Daryl Davis

I was warped early by Ray Bradbury and Edgar Allan Poe. I was very fond of Franz Kafka.

Margaret Atwood

I briefly considered doing Edgar Allan Poe and just swearing a lot.

Andy Richter

I grew up with J. Edgar Hoover. He was the G-man, a hero to everybody, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was the big, feared organization. He was ahead of his time as far as building up forensic evidence and fingerprinting. But he took down a lot of innocent people, too.

Clint Eastwood

No formal course in fiction-writing can equal a close and observant perusal of the stories of Edgar Allan Poe or Ambrose Bierce.

H. P. Lovecraft

I think there’s a lot of, unfortunately, unfunny ventriloquists out there, so they’ve got a bad rap. It came after Edgar Bergen because everybody had a little cheeky boy dummy like Charlie McCarthy, and everybody decided to become a ventriloquist because Bergen had popularized it. He brought it back from the doldrums of vaudeville.

Jeff Dunham

When I was 26, I wrote my first mystery, ‘The Thomas Berryman Number’, and it was turned down by, I don’t know, 31 publishers. Then it won an Edgar for Best First Novel. Go figure.

James Patterson

As the train rounded the curve, the great smoking stacks of the Edgar Thomson works, the flaming converters belching forth, made such a vivid impression upon my youthful mind that it will never fade. I thought I had seen the very acme of what might be accomplished in an industrial way.

Charles M. Schwab

Literature has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I can’t think back before a time that I didn’t love writing and reading. When I was really young, my mother would read poems to me. I loved Edgar Allan Poe – I am sure I didn’t understand it, but I loved it.

Alexandra Adornetto

It’s strange because even in the vaudeville days, ventriloquists were never the main attraction. They were the guys brought out to stand in front of the curtain while sets were being changed. Ventriloquism wasn’t even celebrated as an art until Edgar Bergen came along in the 1930s.
