    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    Far from being antecedent principles that animate the process, law, language, truth are but abstract names for its results.

    David Mamet (b. 1947)

    Tell me, how many hands have palpated the pulp that has grown so generously around your hard, bitter little soul?
