Iain Banks
“Willy, one of the guys at the distillery, comes up with what Oliver and I agree is the best definition of what a 'dram' actually is: 'A measure of whisky that is pleasing to both guest and host.”
Iain Banks

Iain M. Banks
“Does identity matter anyway? I have my doubts. We are what we do, not what we think.

“To the people who insist they really do have a great idea but they just can't write, I'd say that given some of the books I've read, or at least started to read, it would appear that not being able to write is absolutely no obstacle whatsoever to writing a book and securing a publishing contract.

Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
