The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.Jane Austen
Ultimately, literature is nothing but carpentry. With both you are working with reality, a material just as hard as wood.Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Isn’t it queer: there are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before; like the larks in this country, that have been singing the same five notes for thousands of years.
“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”
Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.William Faulkner
