“Ive tried to open the door. My knock isnt that big a sound. But it is like the knock in The Wizard of Oz. It set up this echo through the halls until it was heard by everyone.”
—Shannon Faulkner (b. c. 1975)
“The artist is of no importance. Only what he creates is important, since there is nothing new to be said. Shakespeare, Balzac, Homer have all written about the same things, and if they had lived one thousand or two thousand years longer, the publishers wouldnt have needed anyone since.”
—William Faulkner (18971962)
