“We teach our boys to firebomb villages, but we won't let them write fuck on the side of their planes because it's obscene.”
Francis Ford Coppola, Apocalypse Now

“... there's a hormone secreted into the bloodstream of most writers that makes them hate their own work while they are doing it, or immediately after. This, coupled with the chorus of critical reaction from those privileged to take a first look, is almost enough to discourage further work entirely.”
Francis Ford Coppola

“Art depends on luck and talent.”
Francis Ford Coppola
