Favourite quotes...

I was going through an old note-book this morning, of which I seem to have many, many containing no more than bits and bobs, and oodles of doodles. I came across these quotes I had noted, the first one a reminder of the recent death of the king of the pregnant pause, Harold Pinter:

Samuel Beckett said to an actor in one of his plays, apropos a pregnant pause, "you're playing two dots at the moment, the script says three..."

"I wrote my first novel because I wanted to read it." Toni Morrisson

"The trouble with fiction is that it makes too much sense, whereas reality never makes sense." Aldous Huxley
