Quotes About Author

Author Quote: If you don't put 99 percent of yourself into the writing, there will be no publishing career. There's the writer and there's the author.

Quote about Author: You've thrown down the gauntlet. You've brought my wrath down upon your house. Now, to prove that I exist I must kill you.

Such a life, as your puppet, is not worth living. But... If I destroy you and your dreck script, and I still exist... then my existence will be glorious, for I will become my own master.

Author Sayings: I do not hold that because the author did a bad job of writing the player need trump it with the same kind of acting. When I go into a picture I have only one character to look after. If the author didn't do him justice, I try to add whatever the creator of the part overlooked.

Author Quote: Year after year, author/historian William Loren Katz continues to mine the lodestone of Black culture, and it is simply amazing how often he manages to find new treasures. Here, with the same insight he brought to Black Indians and his other books, the author traces the courageous role of Black women in settling the West.
