I read this again years after reading it for the first time. I knew it was bad then and I think it's worse than I thought. Do I care? Not really. I still like it for what it is--a stupid teenage romance novel. I may not defend it as ardently now as I...more

I like Chabon. I really do, but this book was disappointing. There were some brilliantly written parts. There were also some really long and really not interesting parts. He tried to tackle too many story lines at once. Also, the characters weren't a...more

Ray Bradbury
“It takes writing a billion bad words before you get to the good ones.”
Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury
“I don't believe in being serious about anything. I think life is too serious to be taken seriously."

[Writer’s Digest Interview (Robert Jacobs, Writer’s Digest, February 1976)]”
Ray Bradbury

John Steinbeck
“But the Hebrew word, the word timshel—‘Thou mayest’— that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’—it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Mark Twain
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
Mark Twain

John Steinbeck
“We all have that heritage, no matter what old land our fathers left. All colors and blends of Americans have somewhat the same tendencies. It's a breed - selected out by accident. And so we're overbrave and overfearful - we're kind and cruel as children. We're overfriendly and at the same time frightened of strangers. We boast and are impressed. We're oversentimental and realistic. We are mundane and materialistic - and do you know of any other nation that acts for ideals? We eat too much. We have no taste, no sense of proportion. We throw our energy about like waste. In the old lands they say of us that we go from barbarism to decadence without an intervening culture. Can it be that our critics have not the key or the language of our culture.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden
