Writers, unsurprisingly, come up with the best quotes.
Some of my favorites:
"’The cat sat on the mat’ is not a story. ‘The cat sat on the dog's mat’ is a story.” –John le Carré
“Most grown-up behavior, when you come right down to it, is decidedly second-class. People don’t drive their cars as well, or wash their ears as well, or eat as well, or even play the harmonica as well as they would if they had any sense …[F]or the serious young writer who wants to get published, it is encouraging to know that most of the professional writers out there are push-overs.” –John Gardner, The Art of Fiction
