"... in writing you cannot possibly be interesting if what you say is not true, if it is what I call "a true lie," i.e., a truth which gives the wrong impression. For no matter how subtly you lie in writing, people know it and don't believe you, and the whole secret of being interesting is to be believed."
"... to be scared is such a release from all the logy weight of procrastination, of dallying and pokiness! You burn into work. It is as though gravity were removed and you walked lightly to the moon like an angel."
