„I read once that the true mark of a pro — at anything — is that he understands, loves, and is good at even the drudgery of his profession.“

„Don't hover outside life—take part in it. There are people waiting to love you.“

—  David Gemmell British author of heroic fantasy 1948 - 2006
Context: Look around you: see the people as they touch and show their love. But don't watch coldly, like an observer. Don't hover outside life— take part in it. There are people waiting to love you. It is not something you should turn down lightly. Ch. 13

„I once wrote, in The Information, that an Englishman wouldn't bother to attend a reading even if the author in question was his favorite living writer, and also his long-lost brother — even if the reading was taking place next door.“

—  Martin Amis Welsh novelist 1949
Context: I once wrote, in The Information, that an Englishman wouldn't bother to attend a reading even if the author in question was his favorite living writer, and also his long-lost brother — even if the reading was taking place next door. Whereas Americans go out and do things. But Meeting the Author, for me, is Meeting the Reader. Some of the little exchanges that take place over the signing table I find very fortifying: they make up for some of the other stuff you get.
