Duke Ellington by Richard Avedon for New Yorker magazine, 1963
“...If it sounds good and feels good, then it is good!”
                           --Duke Ellington.
Ernest Hemingway at his stand up desk, Havana Cuba
“...I missed not working and I felt the death loneliness that comes at the end of a day of every day that is wasted in your life.”
                           --Ernest Hemingway
Raymond Chandler
“...Would you convey my compliments to the purist who reads your proofs and tell him or her that I write in a sort of broken down patois which something like the way a Swiss waiter talks, and that when I split an infinitive, God damn it, I split it so it will stay split...!”
                           --Raymond Chandler

Sir Winston Churchill at his stand up desk
“...Writing a book is an adventure.  To begin with it is a toy and an amusement.  Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant.  The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.”

                                    --Winston Churchill
