"Writers are, in the first place, readers. I tell every writer I've ever known, either they are deep readers or they cannot become real writers. Read only the best and most challenging and traditional. And reread it."
 — Harold Bloom

"I am a publisher — a hybrid creature: one part star gazer, one part gambler, one part businessman, one part midwife and three parts optimist."
 — Cass Canfield

"Artists and poets are the raw nerve ends of humanity. By themselves they can do little to save humanity. Without them there would be little worth saving."
