    Quotations

    "Why not say what happened?"—Robert Lowell

    "A person is a fool to become a writer. His only compensation is absolute freedom. He has no master except his own soul, and that, I am sure, is why he does it." —Roald Dahl

    "All I am is the trick of words writing themselves." —Anne Sexton

    “If you’re a good writer, these days, you pay attention to the way that people don’t pay attention.” —Charles Baxter

    “The writer operates at a peculiar crossroads where time and place and eternity somehow meet. His problem is to find that location.” —Flannery O’Connor
