Quote of the Day: Mark Twain

The test of any good fiction is that you should care something for the characters; the good to succeed, the bad to fail. The trouble with most fiction is that you want them all to land in hell, together, as quickly as possible.

Quote of the Day: Mel Brooks

Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with him.

Aldous Huxley

That was the chief difference between literature and life. In books, the proportion of exceptional to commonplace people is high; in reality, very low.
