My 22 favorite quotes from Catch-22 (and then some)

Getting Free

I’ve read the incomparably hilarious book Catch-22 three times (that’s 18 times short of my end goal—get it?), and because I will be traveling to Italy this summer, the very same country in which most of the action of Catch-22 takes place, I felt like this post is appropriate for this blog.

And though I will not be visiting Pianosa during my time in Italy, I will be visiting various other Italian cities that make a showing within the book’s comedic pages. This is my pre-emptive homage to both Italy and Catch-22.

Chapter 1: The TexanImage

“Across the aisle from Yossarian was Dunbar, and next to Dunbar was the artillery captain with whom Yossarian had stopped playing chess.”

“The Texan turned out to be good natured, generous and likable. In three days no one could stand him.”

“Yossarian was sorry to hear they had a mutual friend.”

So few critics, so many poets

"If you think it is so easy to be a critic, so difficult to be a poet or a painter or film experimenter, may I suggest you try both? You may discover why there are so few critics, so many poets." - Pauline Kael
