It is wrong to have an ideal view of the world. That's where the mischief starts. That's where everything starts unravelling.V.S. Naipaul
Ultimately, literature is nothing but carpentry. With both you are working with reality, a material just as hard as wood.Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.Jane Austen
“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.”
Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay. I'm always irritated by people who imply that writing fiction is an escape from reality. It is a plunge into reality and it's very shocking to the system.
