“I think of an author as somebody who goes into the marketplace and puts down his rug and says, ‘I will tell you a story,’ and then he passes the hat.”
~ Robertson Davies (1913-1995), Canadian novelist, journalist
“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. To ‘Why am I here?’ To uselessness. It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”
~ Enid Bagnold (1889-1981), English novelist & playwright.
