“Your only responsibility as a writer is to be true to the story that has chosen you as its writer.”
Jean Little

“While he has not, in my hearing, spoken the English language, he makes it perfectly plain that he understands it. And he uses his ears, tail, eyebrows, various rumbles and grunts, the slant of his great cold nose or a succession of heartrending sighs to get his meaning across.”
Jean Little

“A man can work from sun to sun, But a woman's work is never done.”
