Thoughts for the Day

This time from my namesake, British writer Henry Green (1905-1973):

"Surely the artist must entertain. And one’s in a very bad way indeed if one can’t laugh. Laughter relaxes the characters in a novel. And if you can make the reader laugh he is apt to get careless and go on reading."

“The more you leave out, the more you highlight what you leave in."
