Two.  One to change the bulb and 
one to tell a very long story about it.

'When I speak of writing, the image that comes to mind is not a novel, a poem, or a literary tradition; it is the person who shuts himself up in a room, sits down at a table, and alone, turns inward.  Amid his shadows, he builds a new world with words.'  Orhan Pamuk


'A professional writer  is an amateur
who didn't quit.'  Richard Bach



'A classic is something that everybody wants to have read
and nobody wants to read.'  Mark Twain
