I for one believe that not enough has been made of the tragedy of the destruction of 6 million Jews. Somebody has to cry-even if it's a writer, 20 years later.
Life is a tragedy full of joy.
There comes a time in a man's life when to get where he has to go - if there are no doors or windows he walks through a wall.
Those who write about life, reflect about life. You see in others who you are.
Without heroes, we are all plain people, and don't know how far we can go
If you ever forget you're a Jew, a Gentile will remind you.
Revision is one of the exquisite pleasures of writing
With me, it's story, story, story.
The idea is to get the pencil moving quickly.
Once you've got some words looking back at you, you can take two or three-or throw them away and look for others.
Where to look if you've lost your mind?
If the stories come, you get them written, you're on the right track. Eventually everyone learns his or her own best way. The real mystery to crack is you.
A writer is a spectator, looking at everything with a highly critical eye.
The wild begins where you least expect it, one step off your normal course
Without heroes, we're all plain people, and don't know how far we can go.
