Within Complexity Mean

The complexity of things - the things within things - just seems to be endless. I mean nothing is easy, nothing is simple.

Past Change Whole

Time is something that interests me a whole lot - past and present, and how the past appears as people change.

Other Memory Telling

Memory is the way we keep telling ourselves our stories - and telling other people a somewhat different version of our stories.

- Alice Munro

Experience I See Feel

I no longer feel attracted to the well-made novel. I want to write the story that will zero in and give you intense, but not connected, moments of experience. I guess that's the way I see life. People remake themselves bit by bit and do things they don't understand.

- Alice Munro

About Fact Expected

Housework never really bothered me... what bothered me about it later was that it was expected to be your life... when you're a housewife, you are constantly interrupted. You have no space in your life. It isn't the fact that you do the laundry.

- Alice Munro

Some Through Surely

The stories are not autobiographical, but they're personal in that way. I seem to know only the things that I've learned. Probably some things through observation, but what I feel I know surely is personal.

- Alice Munro

Brought Rule Exception

I was brought up to believe that the worst thing you could do was 'call attention to yourself,' or 'think you were smart.' My mother was an exception to this rule and was punished by the early onset of Parkinson's disease.

- Alice Munro

Happy Very Early Days

In those early days, the important thing was the happy ending. I did not tolerate unhappy endings - for my heroines, anyway. And later on, I began to read things like 'Wuthering Heights,' and very, very unhappy endings would take place, so I changed my ideas completely and went in for the tragic, which I enjoyed.

- Alice Munro

Thought Other Innocent

Writers are always writing about infidelity. It's so dramatic. The wickedness of it, the secrecy, the complications, the finding that you thought you were one person but you're also this other person. The innocent life and the guilty life. My God, it's just full of stuff for a writer. I doubt it will ever go out of fashion.

- Alice Munro

Had Baby Twenty-One

I had my first baby at twenty-one.

- Alice Munro

More Had New

'The New Yorker' was really my first experience with serious editing. Previously, I'd more or less just had copyediting with a few suggestions - not much.

- Alice Munro

More Kept Diaries

I have never kept diaries. I just remember a lot and am more self-centered than most people.

- Alice Munro

Always More Away

I can have people around a lot more because I'm not always chasing them away so I can work on my novel. My non-novel, I mean.

- Alice Munro

Think Growing Endings

That's something I think is growing on me as I get older: happy endings.

- Alice Munro

Think Been Competing

I think any life can be interesting, any surroundings can be interesting. I don't think I could have been so brave if I had been living in a town, competing with people on what can be called a generally higher cultural level.

- Alice Munro

Like Lives Stories

I like gaps; all my stories have gaps. It seems this is the way people's lives present themselves.

- Alice Munro

Had Husband Young

I found it hard to be young. When I was married in my twenties, I hated being regarded as 'the little wife.' You don't know what it was like then! I'd never even written a cheque. I had to ask my husband for money for groceries.

- Alice Munro

Minus Surrounded Maybe

I was a grade B housewife, maybe a B minus. But when I got time to write, I would be unable to finish a sentence. I had anxiety attacks. Partly it was a way of personifying the situation because I couldn't breathe. I was surrounded by people and by duties. I was a housewife and the children's mother, and I was judged on how I performed those roles.

- Alice Munro

Want Never Big

I've lived in a big showplace house, and I never want to live again in a house that overshadows me.

- Alice Munro

We cannot have peace if we are only concerned with peace. War is not an accident. It is the logical outcome of a certain way of life. If we want to attack war, we have to attack that way of life.

If you want to teach women to be great writers, you should show them the best, and the best was often done by men. It was more often done by men than by women, if we're going to be truthful.

Everything I do, I want to be A.J. Styles. When you see a guy come out with dry, long hair, I want you to be like, 'Hey, that reminds me of A.J. Styles.' That's what I want.

Fact Reader Owners

Too many people don't protect their smartphones with a password or PIN. I anticipate that Apple's fingerprint reader will in fact make iPhone 5S owners more likely to secure their smartphones.

- Al Franken

Fact Reader Frequently

Just as I know the usual rules of law enforcement, I also know the exceptions and invoke those frequently. I don't feel a need to bog the reader down with an explanation of why the procedures are realistic, as long as I know that there is, in fact, an explanation.

- Alafair Burke

Love Reader Bit

My normal life is I love to travel, and I travel as often as I can. I don't stay in one place too long. But I'm an avid reader, I guess you could say: I'm a bit of a bookworm.

- Alaina Huffman

Woman Feel Remains

I just find P.J. Harvey so mesmerising to watch because she remains unfathomable. She is the kind of woman who makes you rue the day you weren't born her. She always seems to be the cat that walks alone, and you don't feel you are supposed to know her.

- Alison Moyet

Me Feel Record

It was always important to me that I made a record where I really sang well, and I don't think it's happened yet. There's always a possibility with each album that I might not record again, and I wanted to produce one that I could feel was mine.

- Alison Moyet

Like Feel Addicted

I'm addicted to a really tough workout. I like to be drenched in sweat when I'm done because I feel accomplished.

- Alison Sweeney

Doing Feel I Feel Like

I'm a fan of daytime drama; I totally get it. When we are doing scenes that are romantic or will get the audience riled up, I feel like I'm a fan in the room going, 'People are going to be so mad right now!'

- Alison Sweeney

Feel Soaps Goodbye

I've met so many fans of daytime television who've watched the shows with their moms and grandmas and feel like they've known the characters their whole lives. It's sad for them to have to say goodbye to their favorite soaps and characters. We don't want that to happen to the 'Days' fans.

- Alison Sweeney

Just Feel Planet

I just feel this is my planet.

- Allen Iverson

Thought Good Feel

What makes me feel good is all of the people that rooted for A.I. get a chance to say, 'He did what you never thought he could do. The critics. He did what you never thought he could accomplish.' This is a moment that me and my fans and my family and friends can share together because we always believed in the dream.

- Allen Iverson

Doing Reader Instance

I always like to break out and address the audience. In 'The History Boys', for instance, without any ado, the boys will suddenly turn and talk to the audience and then go back into the action. I find it more adventurous doing it in prose than on the stage, but I like being able to make the reader suddenly sit up.

- Alan Bennett

Another Reader Back

I don't inflict horrors on readers. In my research, I've uncovered truly terrible documentations of cruelty and torture, but I leave that offstage. I always pull back and let the reader imagine the details. We all know to one degree or another the horrors of war.

- Alan Furst

Reader Back Britain

For John le Carre, it was always who's betraying who: the hall-of-mirrors kind of thing. When you go back to the '30s, it's a case of good vs. evil, and no kidding. When I have a hero who believes France and Britain are on the right side, a reader is not going to question that.

- Alan Furst

Through Reader Comics

In comics the reader is in complete control of the experience. They can read it at their own pace, and if there's a piece of dialogue that seems to echo something a few pages back, they can flip back and check it out, whereas the audience for a film is being dragged through the experience at the speed of 24 frames per second.

- Alan Moore
