Five quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American novelist, essayist, short story writer and screenwriter. He was best known for his novels depicting the flamboyance and excess of the Jazz Age—a term he popularized. During his lifetime, he published four novels, four story collections, and 164 short stories. Although he achieved temporary popular success and fortune in the 1920s, Fitzgerald received critical acclaim only after his death and is now widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
 At eighteen our convictions are hills from which we look; at forty-five they are caves in which we hide. 
 In a real dark night of the soul it is always three o'clock in the morning, day after day. 
 No grand idea was ever born in a conference, but a lot of foolish ideas have died there. 
 Sometimes it is harder to deprive oneself of a pain than of a pleasure. 
 The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.
