A travel writer once told me that

'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

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