“To a chemist, nothing on earth is unclean. A writer must be as objective as a chemist; he must abandon the subjective line; he must know that dungheaps play a very respectable part in a landscape, and that evil passions are as inherent in life as good ones.” -Anton Chekhov
“If you write to impress it will always be bad, but if you write to express it will be good.” -Thornton Wilder
