Theodore Sturgeon quotes :
Once I had all the facts in, I found I didn't have the immoral courage to pull the caper. So I wrote it as a story. As a teenager, I didn't have any skills for writing as such, so it came out in 1500 words.Theodore Sturgeon
My wife is beginning to instruct me on means to retrieve dreams, and bit by bit, it does seem to be working.Theodore Sturgeon
