Terry Pratchett
“Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.”
Terry Pratchett, Jingo

James P. Blaylock
“Strange things are said to have happened in this world — some are said to be happening still — but half of them, if I'm any judge, are lies.”
James P. Blaylock, Paper Dragons

Neil Gaiman
“When I was a child, adults would tell me not to make things up, warning me of what would happen if I did. As far as I can tell so far, it seems to involve lots of foreign travel and not having to get up too early in the morning.”

David Farland
“I'd like to emphasize that when a reader finishes a great novel, he will immediately begin looking for another. If someone loves your book, it increases the chance that he or she will look at mine. So there is no competition between writers. Another writer's success helps build a larger readership for all of us.”
David Farland

David Farland
“There is no such thing as an evil genius, as evil in it's self is stupidity.”
David Farland, The Wizard of Ooze
