Kailin Gow
“I have seen authors saying their agents have told them to change their genre to another. For instances, YA genre is re-classified as historical romance or Contemporary Romance is now Women's Fiction to fit market trends. It's important for authors to be flexible, but they should keep writing what they love to write. Writing is a profession, I understand, but it is also an art. Be true to it.”
Kailin Gow

De philosopher DJ Kyos

Jack D. Schwager
“Big market price changes happen when lots of people are forced to reevaluate their prejudices, not necessarily when the world actually changes. — Colm O'Shea”
Jack D. Schwager, Hedge Fund Market Wizards

“Good strategy depends on knowing the enemy, on knowing the enemy's nature. In making this general observation, which deceptively resembles a jeremiad, I am not advocating the invasion of Iran or Syria. I am not suggesting that the invasion of Iraq was the right move. I rather think that America is morally and intellectually unprepared for war of any kind, and should avoid engagement if possible until it can put its own house in order. Wars are fought and won within the human heart, often before any fighting begins. That is why today's intellectual and moral trends are so alarming.

Robert Frost
“For, dear me, why abandon a belief
Merely because it ceases to be true?
Cling to it long enough, and not a doubt
It will turn true again, for so it goes.
Most of the change we think we see in life
Is due to truths being in and out of favor.”
Robert Frost

Randy Lee White
“We trend and tweet

Haruki Murakami
“- Non ti piace il tuo lavoro? - chiese.
Scossi la testa.
- No, non c'è niente da fare, non mi piace. E' un lavoro che non ha senso. Trovo un ristorante dove si mangia bene e scrivo un articolo per farlo conoscere a tutti. Andateci, e scegliete questo e quest'altro. Che bisogno c'è di una cosa del genere? Non sarebbe meglio se ognuno scegliesse liberamente quello che gli piace? Perché ci vuole qualcuno che ti suggerisce perfino dove e cosa mangiare? E poi quando si presenta un ristorante su una rivista, in breve tempo diventa famoso, e inevitabilmente la cucina e il servizio peggiorano. Nove casi su dieci. Perché si altera l'equilibrio tra domanda e offerta. E i responsabili siamo noi. Troviamo qualcosa, e la roviniamo sistematicamente. E' immacolata? Noi la riempiamo di macchie. Ed è questo che la gente chiama informazione. Se poi facciamo la stessa cosa con le persone, frugando nelle loro vite senza lasciare nemmeno il minimo angolo inesplorato, il nostro lavoro è ancora più apprezzato. Io detesto tutte queste cose. E mi trovo a farle di persona.”
Haruki Murakami

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Although it might state otherwise, I don’t think that the world finds anything compelling that’s always shifting to adjust to wherever the world’s going. I think that what the world finds compelling is something so indisputably enthralling that the world is always shifting to adjust to it. And the only thing that I know that has both the power and the character to be that enthralling is God.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Elizabeth Gilbert
“The thing about fashion, my dears, is that you don’t need to follow it, no matter what they say. No fashion trend is compulsory, remember—and if you dress too much in the style of the moment, it makes you look like a nervous person. Paris is all well and good, but we can’t just follow Paris for the sake of Paris, now can we?”
Elizabeth Gilbert, City of Girls

Eoin Colfer
“It was probably the stupid glasses. How were you supposed to see anything wearing mirrored sunglasses underground? Any they were so nineties, they weren't even retro yet.”
Eoin Colfer, Artemis Fowl
