Quotes by David Baldacci

"Why can't people just sit and read books and be nice to each other?"

"When a poor man gives something, that is a sacrifice indeed. When a rich man gives something, it hardly rises to the same level."

"Small mistakes tend to lead to large ones. Ours is a lifetime appoinment, and all you have is your reputation. Once it's gone, it doesn't comeback."

"Depending on the situation, sometimes you can know a person better in ten minutes than someone you have crossed paths with all your life."

"Today might not be so good. But tomorrow, you got another chance to get it right."

  • Description: David Baldacci has been writing since childhood, when his mother gave him a lined notebook in which to write down his stories. (Much later, when David thanked her for being the spark that ignited his writing career, she revealed that she’d given him the notebook to keep him quiet, "because every mom needs a break now and then.”) He published his first novel, Absolute Power, in 1996; it was subsequently adapted for film, with Clint Eastwood as its director and star. In total, David has published 41 novels for adults; all have been national and international bestsellers, and several have been adapted for film and television. His books are published in over 45 languages and in more than 80 countries, with 150 million copies sold worldwide. David has also published seven novels for younger readers. David and his wife, Michelle, are the co-founders of the Wish You Well Foundation®, which supports family and adult literacy programs in the United States. In 2008 the Foundation partnered with Feeding America to launch Feeding Body & Mind, a program to address the connection between literacy, poverty and hunger. Through Feeding Body & Mind, more than 1 million new and used books have been collected and distributed through food banks to families in need.A lifelong Virginian, David is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Virginia School of Law.
