Five Quotes

  2. I went to work in an office and learned, among other lessons, to do things I did not care for, and to do them well. Before I left this office, two of my books had already been published.
  3. I rolled myself up into a tight ball of resistance and it was thus that I went through my school years.
  4. Many a man is given what is intended for another, but no man is given another’s fate.
  5. All my days I have longed equally to travel the right road and to take my own errant path.
