Nelson DeMille

Literary Birthday – 23 August – Nelson DeMille

Happy Birthday, Nelson DeMille, born 23 August 1943.

Five Quotes

  1. If everyone howled at every injustice, every act of barbarism, every act of unkindness, then we would be taking the first step towards a real humanity.
  2. I like the process of pencil and paper as opposed to a machine. I think the writing is better when it’s done in handwriting.
  3. Somehow our devils are never quite what we expect when we meet them face to face.
  4. The problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you are finished.
  5. Writing doesn’t leave much time for hobbies, unless you consider that I began writing as a hobby and have made the hobby into a profession.
