“Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.”
E.L. Doctorow

“A work of art is never finished. It is merely abandoned.”
E.M. Forster

“[I]t's not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship. As always, young readers will be the real losers.”
Judy Blume
