Robert William Service was a renowned British-Canadian novelist and poet known for his significant contributions to the literary world. He was inclined towards reading and writing since an early age and went on to pursue a course in English Literature from the University of Glasgow. Although he was a bright student but his audacities made him leave after a short period of time. He moved to several places, survived by petty jobs and was able to publish some of his poems in the ‘Victoria Daily Colonist’ which were appreciated by the masses. He moved to work at a bank which helped him to pursue his passion for writing and he wrote various poems for ‘The Colonist’. His continuously increasing fame encouraged him to publish his collection of poems titled ‘Songs of a Sourdough’. This book turned out to be a best-seller and had a huge pre-order which helped him earn a fortune. He further published many poetry collections before his debut novel titled ‘The Trail of ‘98’ which turned out to be a best-seller. This was followed by various other novels including ‘The Poisoned Paradise’ and ‘Ballad of Lenin's Tomb’. His writings, books, poems, novels, thoughts and work still have a large readership. We have excerpted his quotes and sayings from his writings and general life. Here is a collection of thoughts and quotes by Robert W.
