"That’s an especially American fantasy, I think: that you can meet the artist anywhere but in their work."--Dennis Haritou, "Ambition & the Writer,"
(I like this quote, even though I think you can
meet me outside my work, but can probably meet me best
within my work.)
"Knowledge and intellection [sic] serve a Tolstoi--but a Tolstoi must be older, must see more as well--and I am not going to be a Tolstoi. Surely, I will be a Kerouac, whatever that suggests."--Jack Kerouac, early April 1943, from Selected Letters 1940-1956
