David Eddings

Literary Birthday – 7 July – David Eddings

Five Quotes

  1. I keep writing because it’s a habit. After fifty years or so I just can’t set it aside.
  2. I hesitate to predict whether this theory is true. But if the general opinion of Mankind is optimistic then we’re in for a period of extreme popularity for science fiction. If the general opinion is pessimistic, fantasy is going to hold its own.
  3. The unfortunate thing about working for yourself is that you have the worst boss in the world. I work every day of the year except at Christmas, when I work a half day.
  4. I wrote a novel for my degree, and I’m very happy I didn’t submit that to a publisher. I sympathise with my professors who had to read it.
  5. God save us from religion.
