“The trick in writing children's books is to set up danger, mystery and excitement on page one. Force the kid to turn the page . . . Then in the middle of each chapter there's a dramatic point of excitement, and at chapter's end, a cliffhanger.”
Jerry West, The Happy Hollisters at Snowflake Camp

“I understand all too well that you can make legislation but you can't legislate how people feel toward one another.”
Jerry West, West by West: My Charmed, Tormented Life

“You can’t get much done in life if you only work on days when you feel good.”
Jerry West
