The most important person in a novel is the reader. Then the characters. Then the world in which they operate. Then the unstated beliefs that are behind everything that happens in a novel. And then, maybe, just maybe, on the caboose of that wrecking train, comes the writer.
One always has a better book in one’s mind than one can manage to get onto paper.
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.
One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures.
George W. Bush
