"Oh really, he was a genius, Helen’s a genius and Dennis is a genius. You know a lot of geniuses, y’know. You should meet some stupid people once in a while, y’know, you could learn something."-Isaac Davis
"Everybody is so talented nowadays that the only people I care to honor as deserving real distinction are those who remain in obscurity."-Thomas Hardy
"Why don’t you just google ‘Villain Sex Name’?"
"Because I don’t want to."
As a mousepad? sure… but then you’re probably the kind of person that doesn’t mind licking wooden popsicle sticks either.
"I don’t believe that paperbacks will ever destroy hardbound publishing… The paperback has actually benefited publishing in more ways than one. Selling reprint and other subsidiary rights is now what keeps a lot of hardbound publishers from going bankrupt, because without a paperback sale, a book doesn’t make expenses most of the time. Also, paperbacks encourage the reading habit; people start with them, and a small percentage will graduate to hardbound books. So new readers are created and books are provided for people who can’t afford the hardbound ones—and that’s the greatest advantage of all… I think the hardbound publisher’s got to be in on this some way or another, and the one who hasn’t buttressed himself with an interest in a paperback house has been very short-sighted."-
Bennett Cerf, on the emergence of paperback books in the 1930s.
For laffs, substitute “ebook” for “paperback” and “print” for “hardbound”.
