While Googling the other day I found some other quotes on writing and books that I quite liked. Unwisely probably I did not double-check these either. ;)

"Everywhere I go I'm asked if I think the university stifles writers. My opinion is that they don't stifle enough of them. There's many a bestseller that could have been prevented by a good teacher." —FLANNERY O'CONNOR


"Every author really wants to have letters printed in the papers. Unable to make the grade, he drops down a rung of the ladder and writes novels." —P.G. WODEHOUSE


"A good novel tells us the truth about its hero, but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author." —G.K. CHESTERTON

"A house without books is like a room without windows." —HORACE MANN


"One writes to make a home for oneself, on paper, in time, in others' minds." —ALFRED KAZIN
