Quoth The Dahl

Two quotes from Roald Dahl, courtesy of his IMDB bio...

A writer of fiction lives in fear. Each new day demands new ideas and he can never be sure whether he is going to come up with them or not.

A person is a fool to become a writer. His only compensation is absolute freedom.

Great quotes.

Cormac Brown said...

Bubs,

Thanks.

Dale said...

I love the absolute freedom quote, possibly because I'm a fool.

Cormac Brown said...

Dale,

Rather, I think you love that because you answer to no man...








...or bagel lady.

Now cats? I understand that is a different story.
