He was schooled capriciously, and only until the age of 12, but from his first bare contact fell wildly in love with the written word.

Read The Nightingale's Nest, one of the finest poems in the English language, and you will see what I mean.("John Clare, poet of the environmental crisis 200 years ago" in The Guardian.)"

Because living it is a duty, we are performing a good moral act just by persevering."
Author: Jennifer Michael Hecht

"An author needs a lot more than one person to succumb to his literary seductive charms, but, like Saul, he must realize that he doesn't have to--and indeed cannot--capture the hearts of every possible reader out there. No matter who the writer, his ideal intended audience is only a small faction of all the living readers.

Rowling--and the immense majority of book-buyers out there actively decline to read them."
