#Quote
1He who awaits much can expect little.
2I don't know who said that novelists read the novels of others only to figure out how they are written. I believe it's true. We aren't satisfied with the secrets exposed on the surface of the page: we turn the book around to find the seams.
3Children's lies are signs of great talent.
4The world must be fucked up when men travel first class and literature goes as freight.
5I'm a journalist. I've always been a journalist. My books couldn't have been written if I weren't a journalist because all the material was taken from reality.
6It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old. They grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.
7A man know when he is growing old because he looks like his father.
8The problem with marriage is that it ends every night after making love, and it must be rebuilt every morning before breakfast.
9Fiction was invented the day Jonas arrived home and told his wife that he was three days late because he had been swallowed by a whale.
10Fame is very agreeable, but the bad thing is that it goes on twenty-four hours a day.
