„I don't really live on compliments. As a matter of fact, they have a way of distracting me.“

—  Jimi Hendrix American musician, singer and songwriter 1942 - 1970
Context: I don't really live on compliments. As a matter of fact, they have a way of distracting me. I know a whole lot of musicians, artists out there who hears the compliments and thinks "wow, I must have been really great" and so they get fat and satisfied and they get lost and forget about their actual talent and start living in another world.

„I don’t search for exactitude in portraying people. I try to give to imaginary people a kind of veracity.“

—  Françoise Sagan French writer 1935 - 2004
Context: I don’t search for exactitude in portraying people. I try to give to imaginary people a kind of veracity. It would bore me to death to put into my novels the people I know. It seems to me that there are two kinds of trickery: the “fronts” people assume before one another’s eyes, and the “front” a writer puts on the face of reality.
