― Ronald Reagan
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
--Henry David Thoreau
I would challenge you to a battle of wits, but I see you are unarmed.
I think it’s terribly dangerous for an artist to fulfill other people’s expectations.
Perhaps I write for no one. Perhaps for the same person children are writing for when they scrawl their names in the snow.
I’m writing a first draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shoveling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.
No true artist will tolerate for one minute the world as it is.
