“Look, the Devil has asked me. We’re very old acquaintances, he and I, and I couldn’t turn him down. My estate is enormous, so he asked me for a little space, since hell has become totally overpopulated and there’s no room left whatsoever. He doesn’t have any choice in the matter Himself. Nowadays, everyone wants to go to hell, and the Devil, being as decent as he is, can’t turn anyone down. You understand, don’t you? There’s nobody left in Heaven. Heaven has gone bankrupt,”.”
A. Tomov - junior, Beyond the Absurd

Robert A. Heinlein
“Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards.”
robert heinlein

Margaret Atwood
“Publishing a book is like stuffing a note into a bottle and hurling it into the sea. Some bottles drown, some come safe to land, where the notes are read and then possibly cherished, or else misinterpreted, or else understood all too well by those who hate the message. You never know who your readers might be.”
Margaret Atwood

Susanna Clarke
“And how shall I think of you?' He considered a moment and then laughed. 'Think of me with my nose in a book!”
