T.S. Eliot
“Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.”
T.S. Eliot

Alice Munro
“In your life there are a few places, or maybe only the one place, where something happened, and then there are all the other places.”
Alice Munro, Too Much Happiness

W. Somerset Maugham
“Beauty is something wonderful and strange that the artist fashions out of the chaos of the world in the torment of his soul. And when he has made it, it is not given to all to know it.

W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon and Sixpence
