Edgar Allan Poe
“A short story must have a single mood and every sentence must build towards it.”
Edgar Allan Poe

Salman Rushdie
“Only the foolish, blinded by language's conventions, think of fire as red or gold. Fire is blue at its melancholy rim, green in its envious heart. It may burn white, or even, in its greatest rages, black.”
Salman Rushdie
