Elmore Leonard
“Psychopaths... people who know the differences between right and wrong, but don't give a shit. That's what most of my characters are like.”
Elmore Leonard

Christopher Hitchens
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
Christopher Hitchens

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
“No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks.”
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Elmore Leonard
“Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing

1. Never open a book with weather.
2. Avoid prologues.
3. Never use a verb other than "said" to carry dialogue.
4. Never use an adverb to modify the verb "said”…he admonished gravely.
5. Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
6. Never use the words "suddenly" or "all hell broke loose."
7. Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
8. Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
9. Don't go into great detail describing places and things.
10. Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.

My most important rule is one that sums up the 10.

If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.”
Elmore Leonard

Bertrand Russell
“There are two motives for reading a book; one, that you enjoy it; the other, that you can boast about it.”
