"I don't think so. Look at it this way: There are two kinds of sculptures. There's the kind that subtracts: Michelangelo starts with a block of marble and chips away. And then there is the kind that adds, building with clay, piling it on. The way I write novels is to keep piling on and piling on and piling on."
"Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it."
"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."
