The Closing by Ken Oder
" Great legal thriller.

Loved the wisdom in the quote, "Don't take aim at the king unless you're certain you'll kill him," and the way the author weaved that in.

Isaac Asimov
“You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.”
Isaac Asimov

Madeleine L'Engle
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

Maya Angelou
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
Maya Angelou, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

J.D. Salinger
“Grand. There's a word I really hate. It's a phony. I could puke every time I hear it.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depth of your heart; confess to yourself you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
