Richard Castle
“There are two kinds of folks who sit around thinking about how to kill people: psychopaths and mystery writers.”
Richard Castle

Richard Castle
“Nikki paid attention to nags because they were the voices God gave to clues.”
Richard Castle, Heat Wave

Richard Castle
“He wrote as if he were the reader. It was also how he kept his writing from becoming too cute, which is to say, about him not the subject. Rook was a journalist but strove to be a storyteller, one who let his subjects speak for themselves and stayed out of their way as much as possible.”
Richard Castle, Naked Heat

Gustave Flaubert
“Do not read as children do to enjoy themselves, or, as the ambitious do to educate themselves. No, read to live.”
Gustave Flaubert
