Quote of the Day: Tom Stoppard

A writer ought to be the best possible source about their work but the writing instinct doesn’t come out of self-examination.  That part of yourself in your work is expressed willy-nilly, without your cooperation, motivation or collusion.  You can’t help being what you write and writing what you are.
