David McCullough Quotes

The 10 best David McCullough Quotes :

1)”I work very hard on the writing, writing and rewriting and trying to weed out the lumber.”

2)”People ask me when I start one of these projects, what is your theme? I havent the faintest idea. Thats why youre writing the book, it seems to me, to find out. To me, its a journey. Its an adventure. Its traveling in a country youve never been in and everything is going to be new, and because of that, vivid. And dont make up your mind too soon. Let it be an experience.”

3)”Once upon a time in the dead of winter in the Dakota Territory, Theodore Roosevelt took off in a makeshift boat down the Little Missouri River in pursuit of a couple of thieves who had stolen his prized rowboat. After several days on the river, he caught up and got the draw on them with his trusty Winchester, at which point they surrendered. Then Roosevelt set off in a borrowed wagon to haul the thieves cross-country to justice. They headed across the snow-covered wastes of the Badlands to the railhead at Dickinson, and Roosevelt walked the whole way, the entire 40 miles. It was an astonishing feat, what might be called a defining moment in Roosevelt’s eventful life. But what makes it especially memorable is that during that time, he managed to read all of Anna Karenina. I often think of that when I hear people say they haven’t time to read. David McCullough”
