68311. I remember; I was 15 years old when Neil Armstrong put feet in the moon. – Umberto Guidoni

68313. I was, I remember, I still remember when the first time I pointed the telescope at the sky and I saw Saturn with the rings. It was a beautiful image. – Umberto Guidoni

68315. When this space walk will be completed, then the arm will be fully operational and ready for the next activity that will be pretty much the testing, the first flight testing of the space station arm. – Umberto Guidoni

68316. During that space walk there will be some repositioning of the power so that the arm can be fully controlled by the robotic station that is in the Lab. – Umberto Guidoni

68317. But, what we need to get out of the first EVA is to have the arm completely unfolded and powered so that they can keep the temperature under control. That will really the call of the first EVA. – Umberto Guidoni

68318. Well, we have two major goals. The most important one is to get the station arm on board the station, because that’s this really milestone in the space station building since from now on they will be using this arm to continue building the space station. – Umberto Guidoni

68319. And since Italy was involved in the space station as well as signed an agreement with NASA. And when the possibility to enter the 1996 Mission Specialist class. – Umberto Guidoni

68322. And so, I will be probably, since I am not involved in all the activity, I will have some spare time to devote to document all this busy part of the flight. – Umberto Guidoni

68323. And so, in case we have contingencies and things that we cannot accomplish within the duration of the space walk, we have a buffer, I mean, in order to be able to complete the… what we want to accomplish. – Umberto Guidoni

68324. And the first flight of the tether satellite happened in ’92, and I was the backup on that flight. – Umberto Guidoni

68325. And then I graduate two years later, in 1998, with my class. And, since then I’ve been here in Houston for training basically. And I was very happy to be assigned to this mission. – Umberto Guidoni

68326. And then my chance really happened in 1996 when we added the second flight of the tether satellite. – Umberto Guidoni

68343. I’m not trying to say that it never hurt or that I never felt its sting, but I can honestly say that I never blamed anybody for racism. I have considered it more of a manifestation of humanity’s problem rather than my personal problem. – Robert Guillaume

68344. My acting ability would have sent me back to the post office. It was my singing that got me jobs. Ironically, now, people think of me as an actor and don’t know me much as a singer. – Robert Guillaume

68345. I’ve certainly experienced racism, but it has not made a great impact on me. I have always thought, as I got older and older, I was more in charge of who I was. What someone thought about me or said about me made less of an impression on me at very vulnerable times. – Robert Guillaume

68415. All parents believe their children can do the impossible. They thought it the minute we were born, and no matter how hard we’ve tried to prove them wrong, they all think it about us now. And the really annoying thing is, they’re probably right. – Cathy Guisewite

68416. I’m most proud of having created something that men never completely get. – Cathy Guisewite

68418. I’d love to see more equal representation of female and male cartoonists on the comics page. – Cathy Guisewite

68495. I haven’t written anything in four years. I’m sort of dried up. – Thom Gunn

68503. There are no generalizations in American politics that vested selfishness cannot cut through. – John Gunther

68504. The last copy of the Chicago Daily News I picked up had three crime stories on its front page. But by comparison to the gaudy days, this is small-time stuff. Chicago is as full of crooks as a saw with teeth, but the era when they ruled the city is gone forever. – John Gunther

68790. All I wanted was to connect my moods with those of Paris. Beauty paints and when it painted most, I shot. – Ernst Haas

68791. A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognize it? – Ernst Haas

68792. It’s cool to play a sinister bad guy who also has a human side. – Lukas Haas

68793. On a low-budget film, you don’t have all the luxuries. – Lukas Haas

68794. Material Girls was so different for me, I’d never done a teen movie. – Lukas Haas

68795. I also couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be in the same movie as Jack Nicholson and Glenn Close. – Lukas Haas

68796. This was basically the first time I got to act in action scenes, with things blowing up all around me. It sounds corny, but I think every actor would like to – at least once in his or her career – play the person who saves the entire world. – Lukas Haas

68797. I was in Kansas for about a month, and we worked most of the time in a very small town, so it felt like the production basically took the whole town over. In a way, we were the Martians in Kansas. – Lukas Haas

68798. A low budget is uncomfortable. – Lukas Haas

68799. It was a wonderful experience to work with Sylvia. She pushed me to be more powerful with my acting, and she told me scores of the most incredible stories I’ve ever heard. She is amazing. – Lukas Haas

68800. In choosing any role, I ask the same questions: what kind of part is it? is the role challenging? does the director have a vision? is the story moving? etc. – Lukas Haas

68801. The uncertainty of the danger belongs to the essence of terrorism. – Jurgen Habermas

68802. What was new was the symbolic force of the targets struck. The attackers did not just physically cause the highest buildings in Manhattan to collapse; they also destroyed an icon in the household imagery of the American nation. – Jurgen Habermas

68803. Today’s Islamic fundamentalism is also a cover for political motifs. We should not overlook the political motifs we encounter in forms of religious fanaticism. – Jurgen Habermas

68804. The misery in war-torn Afghanistan is reminiscent of images from the Thirty Years’ War. – Jurgen Habermas

68805. The state is in danger of falling into disrepute due to the evidence of its inadequate resources. – Jurgen Habermas

68806. The scenarios of biological or chemical warfare painted in detail by the American media during the months after September 11 only betray the inability of the government to determine the magnitude of the danger. – Jurgen Habermas

68807. Each murder is one too many. – Jurgen Habermas

68808. One never really knows who one’s enemy is. – Jurgen Habermas

68809. Osama bin Laden, the person, more likely serves the function of a stand-in. Compare the new terrorists with partisans or conventional terrorists in Israel. These people often fight in a decentralized manner in small, autonomous units, too. – Jurgen Habermas

68810. Partisans fight on familiar territory with professed political objectives to conquer power. This is what distinguishes them from terrorists. – Jurgen Habermas

68811. Perhaps at a later point important developments will be traced back to September 11. But for now we do not know which of the many scenarios will actually hold in the future. – Jurgen Habermas

68812. Perhaps September 11 could be called the first historic world event in the strictest sense: the impact, the explosion, the slow collapse – a gruesome reality literally took place in front of a global public. – Jurgen Habermas

68813. Since our complex societies are highly susceptible to interferences and accidents, they certainly offer ideal opportunities for a prompt disruption of normal activities. – Jurgen Habermas

68814. Since the intervention in Afghanistan, we suddenly began to notice when, in political discussions, we found ourselves only among Europeans or Israelis. – Jurgen Habermas

68815. Some of those drawn into the holy war had been secular nationalists only a few years before. If one looks at the biographies of these people, remarkable continuities are revealed. – Jurgen Habermas

68816. The clever, albeit fragile, coalition against terrorism brought together by the U.S. government might be able to advance the transition from classical international law to a cosmopolitan order. – Jurgen Habermas

68817. Manhattan… capital of the 20th century, a city that has fascinated me for more than three decades. – Jurgen Habermas

68818. The difference between political terror and ordinary crime becomes clear during the change of regimes, in which former terrorists become well-regarded representatives of their country. – Jurgen Habermas

68819. In the U.S.A. or Europe there is no realistic way to estimate the type, magnitude, or probability of the risk, nor any way to narrow down the potentially affected regions. – Jurgen Habermas

68820. If the September 11 terror attack is supposed to constitute a caesura in world history, it must be able to stand comparison to other events of world historical impact. – Jurgen Habermas

68821. I consider Bush’s decision to call for a war against terrorism a serious mistake. He is elevating these criminals to the status of war enemies, and one cannot lead a war against a network if the term war is to retain any definite meaning. – Jurgen Habermas

68822. I cannot imagine a context that would some day, in some manner, make the monstrous crime of September 11 an understandable or comprehensible political act. – Jurgen Habermas

68823. Historically, terrorism falls in a category different from crimes that concern a criminal court judge. – Jurgen Habermas

68824. From a moral point of view, there is no excuse for terrorist acts, regardless of the motive or the situation under which they are carried out. – Jurgen Habermas

68825. Disappointment over nationalistic authoritarian regimes may have contributed to the fact that today religion offers a new and subjectively more convincing language for old political orientations. – Jurgen Habermas

68826. After September 11, the European governments have completely failed. They are incapable of seeing beyond their own national scope of interests. – Jurgen Habermas

68827. A threatened nation can react to uncertain dangers solely through administrative channels, to the truly embarrassing situation of perhaps overreacting. – Jurgen Habermas

68828. Global terrorism is extreme both in its lack of realistic goals and in its cynical exploitation of the vulnerability of complex systems. – Jurgen Habermas

68829. Instead of the international police action we had hoped for during the war in Kosovo, there are wars again – conducted with state-of-the-art technology, but still in the old style. – Jurgen Habermas

68830. All knowledge is ambiguous. – J. S. Habgood

68831. Movements born in hatred very quickly take on the characteristics of the thing they oppose. – J. S. Habgood

68832. Americans believe that people should work hard and get ahead on their own, but when disaster strikes and they need help with retirement or disability, Americans as a whole should come to their aid. – Jacob Hacker

68833. Even people who feel perfectly comfortable investing in the stock market and owning their own homes often have qualms about individual medical accounts or Social Security private accounts. – Jacob Hacker

68834. Good writing gives energy, whatever it is about. – Marilyn Hacker

68835. I’ve been an inveterate reader of literary magazines since I was a teenager. There are always discoveries. You’re sitting in your easy chair, reading; you realize you’ve read a story or a group of poems four times, and you know, Yes, I want to go farther with this writer. – Marilyn Hacker

68836. I’m addicted to email, but other than that, there are practical things – being able to buy a book on the internet that you can’t find in your local bookshop. This could be a lifeline if you live further from the sources. – Marilyn Hacker

68837. I worked at all kinds of jobs, mostly commercial editing. – Marilyn Hacker

68838. I wonder what it means about American literary culture and its transmission when I consider the number of American poets who earn their living teaching creative writing in universities. I’ve ended up doing that myself. – Marilyn Hacker

68839. I try to write everyday. I do that much better over here than when I’m teaching. I always rewrite, usually fairly close-on which is to say first draft, then put it aside for 24 hours then more drafts. – Marilyn Hacker

68840. I think there is something about coming to a city to work that puts you in touch with it in a different way. – Marilyn Hacker

68841. I started to send my work to journals when I was 26, which was just a question of when I got the courage up. They were mostly journals I had been reading for the previous six or seven years. – Marilyn Hacker

68842. I lived in the studio apartment that I bought for four years before I bought it in 1989, so I was already in it. I began living there in 1985, so I’ve had the same address and phone number since then. – Marilyn Hacker

68843. I have experienced healing through other writers’ poetry, but there’s no way I can sit down to write in the hope a poem will have healing potential. If I do, I’ll write a bad poem. – Marilyn Hacker

68844. I don’t know whether a poem has be there to help to develop something. I think it’s there for itself, for what the reader finds in it. – Marilyn Hacker

68845. Given the devaluation of literature and of the study of foreign languages per se in the United States, as well as the preponderance of theory over text in graduate literature studies, creative writing programs keep literature courses populated. – Marilyn Hacker

68846. Community means people spending time together here, and I don’t think there’s really that. – Marilyn Hacker

68847. As a teacher you are more or less obliged to pay the same amount of attention to everything. That can wear you down. – Marilyn Hacker

68848. Everyone thinks they’re going to write one book of poems or one novel. – Marilyn Hacker

68849. My mother was told she couldn’t go to medical school because she was a woman and a Jew. So she became a teacher in the New York City public school system. – Marilyn Hacker

68850. I don’t think it’s by accident that I was first attracted to translating two French women poets. – Marilyn Hacker

68851. Paris is a wonderful city. I can’t say I belong to an especially anglophone community. – Marilyn Hacker

68852. Perhaps first and foremost is the challenge of taking what I find as a reader and making it into a poem that, primarily, has to be a plausible poem in English. – Marilyn Hacker

68853. Poetry seems to have been eliminated as a literary genre, and installed instead, as a kind of spiritual aerobic exercise – nobody need read it, but anybody can do it. – Marilyn Hacker

68854. The ambiguities of language, both in terms of vocabulary and syntax, are fascinating: how important connotation is, what is lost and what is gained in the linguistic transition. – Marilyn Hacker

68855. The phenomenon of university creative writing programs doesn’t exist in France. The whole idea is regarded as a novelty, or an oddity. – Marilyn Hacker

68856. The pleasure that I take in writing gets me interested in writing a poem. It’s not a statement about what I think anybody else should be doing. For me, it’s an interesting tension between interior and exterior. – Marilyn Hacker

68857. The pull between sound and syntax creates a kind of musical tension in the language that interests me. – Marilyn Hacker

68858. The woman poet must be either a sexless, reclusive eccentric, with nothing to say specifically to women, or a brilliant, tragic, tortured suicide. – Marilyn Hacker

68859. There is a way in which all writing is connected. In a second language, for example, a workshop can liberate the students’ use of the vocabulary they’re acquiring. – Marilyn Hacker

68860. There is something very satisfactory about being in the middle of something. – Marilyn Hacker

68861. Of the individual poems, some are more lyric and some are more descriptive or narrative. Each poem is fixed in a moment. All those moments written or read together take on the movement and architecture of a narrative. – Marilyn Hacker

68862. Clearly, once the student is no longer a student the possibilities of relationship are enlarged. – Marilyn Hacker

68863. Translation is an interestingly different way to be involved both with poetry and with the language that I’ve found myself living in much of the time. I think the two feed each other. – Marilyn Hacker

68864. You are almost not free, if you are teaching a group of graduate students, to become friends with one of them. I don’t mean anything erotically charged, just a friendship. – Marilyn Hacker

68865. When you translate poetry in particular, you’re obliged to look at how the writer with whom you’re working puts together words, sentences, phrases, the triple tension between the line of verse, the syntax and the sentence. – Marilyn Hacker

68866. Translation makes me look at how a poem is put together in a different way, without the personal investment of the poem I’m writing myself, but equally closely technically. – Marilyn Hacker

68867. We sometimes received – and I would read – 200 manuscripts a week. Some of them were wonderful, some were terrible; most were mediocre. It was like the gifts of the good and bad fairies. – Marilyn Hacker

68868. As a child my family’s menu consisted of two choices: take it or leave it. – Buddy Hackett

68869. Golf is more fun than walking naked in a strange place, but not much. – Buddy Hackett

68870. I’ve had a few arguments with people, but I never carry a grudge. You know why? While you’re carrying a grudge, they’re out dancing. – Buddy Hackett

68871. I’ve had a good day when I don’t fall out of the cart. – Buddy Hackett

68872. Obviously classical music tends to be stuff that is usually at least a hundred years old. – Steve Hackett

68873. I think that a song, when it works, never mind a piece of long form music, even a song is something that speaks to itself but has a language all of its own, ideally. – Steve Hackett

68874. Religion deals in certainties and philosophy deals more in un-answered questions. – Steve Hackett

68875. These days I can really get the strings to snap if I want. – Steve Hackett

68876. I think that the process of making music is a hard one to describe as well. – Steve Hackett

68877. Love’s stronger than fear and death. – Steve Hackett

68878. It’s funny, when people talk about the 70s I can tell you the year of every album but when it comes to the later efforts I can’t remember the exact years, it’s funny isn’t it? – Steve Hackett

68879. This devil loves mankind because men are going to always make the choice that will send him into ascendancy. He’s been winning the game for a long time. – Taylor Hackford

68880. Music has always been an important thing to me in my life and understand I’ve worked in the music business. – Taylor Hackford

68881. My creative partner is a writer, and he’s got an executive producing credit on this film. We’ve made three films together and I would never underestimate the impact of a writer. – Taylor Hackford

68882. Ray Charles, in his own way, it’s like at the beginning, Ray Charles changed American music, not once but twice. – Taylor Hackford

68883. Russell Crowe is very difficult, but it’s worth it. He’s the real thing. I can tell you this. Russell Crowe was just as difficult before he was an international star as he was afterwards. – Taylor Hackford

68884. Show business is one of those things that people can use to get themselves out of the lower rung of society. – Taylor Hackford

68885. The director’s job should give you a sense of music without drawing attention to itself. – Taylor Hackford

68886. The whole concept of the devil is a metaphor on one level. – Taylor Hackford

68887. We all get paid very, very well, and we have responsibilities. – Taylor Hackford

68888. Well I don’t think I’ve scored my life exclusively to Ray Charles. – Taylor Hackford

68889. When I finish a film, I put it away and I never look at it again. – Taylor Hackford

68890. You’d be surprised how many movie stars still care about the work. – Taylor Hackford

68891. It’s very clearly stated in the film: You make your own choices, and what you’re always fighting is ego. – Taylor Hackford

68892. It’s much easier to work with an unknown. – Taylor Hackford

68893. The SAS is the most elite of the special forces in the world. They are not people who go out and advertise; they keep it inside. They don’t want anybody to know about them. – Taylor Hackford

68894. I make films about working class people. – Taylor Hackford

68895. Look at Walter Huston in The Devil and Daniel Webster: It’s an incredible performance. – Taylor Hackford

68896. And it’s a question of how far we’re willing to go in order to let the ego shine, in order to let that beacon penetrate not only the local scene but the world. – Taylor Hackford

68897. Because when you have millions of people with this kind of need for gratification, and the culture is saying that it’s possible for everyone to satisfy all of their needs and desires all of the time, there are obviously going to be clashes – clashes of ego. – Taylor Hackford

68898. But a writer’s contribution is literary and a film is not literary. When you take that stuff off the page, and cast the people who are going to fit into those roles, that’s what being a director is. – Taylor Hackford

68899. But the process of making a film is not glamorous. Certainly not my films. – Taylor Hackford

68900. But, unfortunately, sometimes that affirmation creates a sense that you deserve special treatment and recognition in areas where you’re not so talented. – Taylor Hackford

68901. I feel very comfortable shooting music, and I think you can see that. – Taylor Hackford

68902. I really believe you can predict when someone has a great attitude, a real well of talent. – Taylor Hackford

68903. I try to get the best performance an actor can give. – Taylor Hackford

68904. I’m not in front of the camera, they are. I encourage them; I build up as much of their confidence and ego as possible. They’ve got to take control; I can’t act it out. – Taylor Hackford

68905. If people are worried about the size of their trailers, I kind of say their priorities are off. – Taylor Hackford

68906. It isn’t glamorous until after the film is finished, and you are at the premiere and getting your picture on the cover of magazines. – Taylor Hackford

68907. An actor has to embody a role. – Taylor Hackford

68908. It was the era of Tab Hunter and Rock Hudson; they all had a certain look. – Taylor Hackford

68909. I also know what looks good before the camera, how to move the camera, and how to get a story on the screen. – Taylor Hackford

68910. Every once in a while, something happens to you that makes you realise that the human race is not quite as bad as it so often seems to be. – Ian Hacking

68911. I have this extraordinary curiosity about all subjects of the natural and human world and the interaction between the physical sciences and the social sciences. – Ian Hacking

68912. Cutting up fowl to predict the future is, if done honestly and with as little interpretation as possible, a kind of randomization. But chicken guts are hard to read and invite flights of fancy or corruption. – Ian Hacking

68913. If you were just intent on killing people you could do better with a bomb made of agricultural fertiliser. – Ian Hacking

68914. Dysfunctional families have sired a number of pretty good actors. – Gene Hackman

68915. I do not like assassins, or men of low character. – Gene Hackman

68916. I was trained to be an actor, not a star. I was trained to play roles, not to deal with fame and agents and lawyers and the press. – Gene Hackman

68917. If I start to become a star, I’ll lose contact with the normal guys I play best. – Gene Hackman

68918. If you look at yourself as a star, you’ve already lost something in the portrayal of any human being. – Gene Hackman

68919. It really costs me a lot emotionally to watch myself on screen. I think of myself, and feel like I’m quite young, and then I look at this old man with the baggy chins and the tired eyes and the receding hairline and all that. – Gene Hackman

68920. The difference between a hero and a coward is one step sideways. – Gene Hackman

68921. Terrorism, too, must be excised wherever it exists, which will take years, and which can’t happen without the total commitment and the everyday involvement of the American people. – David Hackworth

68922. That’s because international Islamic religious fanatics have the same goal as the Axis fascists – the destruction of our way of life. – David Hackworth

68923. That’s what supporting the troops is really all about – making sure American grunts get the right stuff! – David Hackworth

68924. The old saying that war is a racket has taken on an even more shameful meaning. – David Hackworth

68925. Their plan is to return the entire world – not just the Middle East – to the days of the caliphate and either convert all of us so-called infidels into born-again Islamic believers or kill us. – David Hackworth

68926. War is the ultimate reality-based horror show. – David Hackworth

68927. Writing with you is the only thing that keeps me alive. – David Hackworth

68928. Our generals talk a good game about taking care of their grunts, and the majority of our Beltway politicians bay with moralistic fervor about how they, too, support the troops. – David Hackworth

68929. We citizens don’t need to know every detail of every military operation in this new kind of war. Nor should the media tell us and hence our enemy. – David Hackworth

68930. Because our homeland and very survival are once more at stake, the American people can’t afford to treat this new war against terrorism like they did Vietnam. – David Hackworth

68931. Of course, it’s imperative that we stabilize Iraq and quickly reduce our armed role there. – David Hackworth

68932. Modern American war is as easy to script as a B movie. – David Hackworth

68933. It’s human nature to start taking things for granted again when danger isn’t banging loudly on the door. – David Hackworth

68934. In order to drill into young men the need to stay alert and stay alive, I used to punish offenders with my fists, boots and rifle butt, and with stockade time. – David Hackworth

68935. If a policy is wrongheaded, feckless and corrupt, I take it personally and consider it a moral obligation to sound off and not shut up until it’s fixed. – David Hackworth

68936. Grunts on the line, where the enemy wants them dead, still goof off – even knowing that by letting their guard down they might die. – David Hackworth

68937. Fortunately, it’s still not too late to develop a comprehensive global strategy to eliminate our real enemy. – David Hackworth

68938. Our fumbling government’s response since Beirut – during both Republican and Democratic administrations – has been to cut and run, or to flat ignore this growing threat, apparently hoping it would go away. – David Hackworth

68939. Fighting terrorism is not unlike fighting a deadly cancer. It can’t be treated just where it’s visible – every diseased cell in the body must be destroyed. – David Hackworth

68940. The greatest gift is the passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination. – Moses Hadas

68941. Thank you for sending me a copy of your book – I’ll waste no time reading it. – Moses Hadas

68942. I have read your book and much like it. – Moses Hadas

68943. The Internet makes it possible for people like me to live the way I do now. Without it, I’d have to be in New York or some other city. I think the Internet is the greatest invention in history after antibiotics. – Jane Haddam

68944. You’ve either got to find a way to make your continuing characters insteresting without making them maudlin or overwrought, or you’ve got to put more emphasis on the suspects. – Jane Haddam

68945. Nobody in real life ever takes me seriously. – Jane Haddam

68946. My husband used to take care of the business part of this, and after he died I found I wasn’t really any good at it. I hate remembering who owes me what and bugging them if they haven’t paid me. – Jane Haddam

68947. Listen to advice. You don’t know how many writer’s conferences I’ve taught at where at least half the audience fights all the conventions of the field. – Jane Haddam

68948. I’ve been a teacher at the college level, in composition mostly, and I’ve been an editor on magazines. – Jane Haddam

68949. I was the executive editor on a little magazine called Greek Accent, whose only claim to fame is that its art director went on to be the art director of Discover for many years. – Jane Haddam

68950. I tend to come up with people more than situations – most of my books start with a character. – Jane Haddam

68951. I really hate those books where the murderer turns out to be somebody you never heard of who pops up in the last chapter. – Jane Haddam

68952. Everybody is a True Believer. Everybody has a little nugget they’re convinced of that is the opposite of the nugget on the other side. And they’re convinced it’s fact. – Jane Haddam

68953. I don’t make my own schedule – it’s constructed around my sons’ school schedules. – Jane Haddam

68954. I’d like to write a history, maybe of the Reformation. – Jane Haddam

68955. The deadlines are much, much longer with books. When I was a reporter, a lot of times I’d come in at 8:30 a.m., get an assignment right away, interview somebody, turn the story in by 9:30, and have the finished story in the paper that landed on my desk by noon. – Margaret Haddix

68956. There’s something about each of my books that I’m really proud of, and there’s something about each of my books that I cringe over. – Margaret Haddix

68957. I was lucky enough not to face any required summer reading lists until I went to college. So I still think of summer as the best time to read for fun. – Margaret Haddix

68958. When writing isn’t going well-then the bad thing about being a writer is that I also have the freedom and flexibility to do something badly, and no one else can fix it for me. – Margaret Haddix

68959. I write a book over a period of months or years, and when I’m done with it, usually another year goes by before I see it in print. It’s hard to be patient and wait. – Margaret Haddix

68960. Sometimes I can spend as long revising a manuscript as I spent writing it in the first place. – Margaret Haddix

68961. It’s just so much fun to make up characters, situations, and everything else about a story. I have so much freedom and flexibility to do whatever I want. – Margaret Haddix

68962. I started trying to write when I was in second or third grade. – Margaret Haddix

68963. I think I learned a lot from reading in general – even from reading badly written books. – Margaret Haddix

68964. I loved to read when I was a kid, and as soon as I realized that an actual person got to make up the books I loved so much, I decided that that was the job for me. – Margaret Haddix

68965. I like the fact that kids are willing to be imaginative and go along with me when I’m telling strange tales. – Margaret Haddix

68966. Generally I finish a first draft in 2-6 months, then I set it aside for a while so that when I come back to it I can read it with fresh eyes and figure out how to improve it. – Margaret Haddix

68967. After I’ve sent my revised draft to my agent and editor, they suggest more improvement sand again, this revision phase can take anywhere from a few hours to a few months. – Margaret Haddix

68968. Eventually the bad stuff I’m writing turns into better stuff. Other times, I’ve just walked away from what I was working on, and figured I’d have a better perspective when I came back to it. – Margaret Haddix

68969. I like playing around with the words; I love it when I feel like I’ve picked the exact right word to describe whatever it is I’m trying to describe. – Margaret Haddix

68970. As a kid, I didn’t read a great deal of fiction, and I’ve forgotten most of what I did read. – Mark Haddon

68971. At 20, 25, 30, we begin to realise that the possibilities of escape are getting fewer. We have jobs, children, partners, debts. This is the part of us to which literary fiction speaks. – Mark Haddon

68972. B is for bestseller. – Mark Haddon

68973. Bore children, and they stop reading. There’s no room for self-indulgence or showing off or setting the scene. – Mark Haddon

68974. I started writing books for children because I could illustrate them myself and because, in my innocence, I thought they’d be easier. – Mark Haddon

68975. For me, disability is a way of getting some extremity, some kind of very difficult situation, that throws an interesting light on people. – Mark Haddon

68976. From a good book, I want to be taken to the very edge. I want a glimpse into that outer darkness. – Mark Haddon

68977. I am atheist in a very religious mould. I’m always asking myself the big questions. Where did we come from? Is there a meaning to all of this? When I find myself in church, I edit the hymns as I sing them. – Mark Haddon

68978. I better make the plot good. I wanted to make it grip people on the first page and have a big turning point in the middle, as there is, and construct the whole thing like a roller coaster ride. – Mark Haddon

68979. I don’t mean that literary fiction is better than genre fiction, On the contrary; novels can perform two functions and most perform only one. – Mark Haddon

68980. I don’t remember deciding to become a writer. You decide to become a dentist or a postman. For me, writing is like being gay. You finally admit that this is who you are, you come out and hope that no one runs away. – Mark Haddon

68981. I knew there was a story; once you find a dog with a fork through it, you know there’s a story there. – Mark Haddon

68982. Every life is narrow. Our only escape is not to run away, but to learn to love the people we are and the world in which we find ourselves. – Mark Haddon
