"When you write, you want fame, fortune and personal satisfaction. You want to write what you want to write and feel it's good, and you want this to go on for hundreds of years. You're not likely ever to get all these things, and you're not likely to give up writing [...] if you don't, but that is -- and should be -- your goal. Anything else is kind of piddling.”

Dashiell Hammett
