„We are human, and nothing is more interesting to us than humanity.“

—  M. H. Abrams American literary theorist 1912 - 2015
Cornell Chronicle interview (1999), Context: We are human, and nothing is more interesting to us than humanity. The appeal of literature is that it is so thoroughly a human thing — by, for and about human beings. If you lose that focus, you obviate the source of the power and permanence of literature.

„I've made more money in novels than I did in my entire career in comics.“

—  Jim Starlin Comic creator 1949
Context: I've made more money in novels than I did in my entire career in comics. The few years I did novels, they paid off so well, I don't have to be a slave to doing comics. But I'd rather do comics than novels. If I wanted to do it just for the money, I'd run off and do another novel. I just don't have the juice for it. I'm really not interested in it. It's a love for what this medium is. Interview at comicbookresources.com (28 July 2000) http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=194
