“For years and years I thought that stories were just practice, till I got time to write a novel. Then I found that they were all I could do, and so I faced that.”

“I have never kept diaries. I just remember a lot and am more self-centered than most people.”
“The challenge is to remember that poetry must still dance. We can all think of poets who lost their sense of joy or humor when they assumed the burden of memory. Memory is the mother of the muses, who weren’t dour figures. They were lovelies.”
