You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what’s burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.

Arthur Polotnik

There are men that will make you books, and turn them loose into the world, with as much dispatch as they would do a dish of fritters.

Miguel de Cervantes

Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression. The chasm is never completely bridged. We all have the conviction, perhaps illusory, that we have much more to say than appears on the paper.

Isaac Bashevis Singer
