Henry Miller (from Tropic of Cancer)

“I was permitted to hear an incredible music…I heard the gestation of the new world…the sound of stars grinding and chafing, of fountains clotted with blazing gems….Music is planetary fire, an irreducible which is all sufficient; it is the slate-writing of the gods.”

-Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer

 

“I’ve always just wanted to earn my living by writing.  The best thing is to go into my study in the morning and put words together.”  -Robert Harris
