    The want of an international Copy-Right Law, by rendering it nearly impossible to obtain anything from the booksellers in the way of remuneration for literary labor, has had the effect of forcing many of our very best writers into the service of the Magazines and Reviews.

    We are the music-makers,
    And we are the dreamers of dreams,
    Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
    And sitting by desolate streams;
    World-losers and world-forsakers,
    On whom the pale moon gleams:
    —Arthur William Edgar O’Shaughnessy (1844–1881)

    —Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1845)

    So by all means let’s have a television show quick and long, even if the commercial has to be delivered by a man in a white coat with a stethoscope hanging around his neck, selling ergot pills.

    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    A good film script should be able to do completely without dialogue.
    David Mamet (b. 1947)
