Mickey Spillane
“The first chapter sells the book; the last chapter sells the next book.”
Mickey Spillane

Kurt Vonnegut
“Another Kilgore Trout book there in the window was about a man who built a time machine so he could go back and see Jesus. It worked, and he saw Jesus when Jesus was only twelve years old. Jesus was learning the carpentry trade from his father.

Two Roman soldiers came into the shop with a mechanical drawing on papyrus of a device they wanted built by sunrise the next morning. It was a cross to be used in the execution of a rabble-rouser.
Jesus and his father built it. They were glad to have the work. And the rabble-rouser was executed on it. So it goes.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Terry Goodkind
“We reap a reward merely in the act of helping others. We never know how, or if, that reward will come back to us. Helping is the reward; none other is needed nor better.”
Terry Goodkind

Oscar Wilde
“One should never do anything that one cannot talk about after dinner.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
