Joyce Carol Oates

Some of the best advice I've had comes from junior officers and enlisted men.
Chester W. Nimitz
People think that women don't negotiate because they're not good negotiators, but that's not it. Women don't negotiate because it doesn't work as well for them.

They're fancy talkers about themselves, writers. If I had to give young writers advice, I would say don't listen to writers talking about writing or themselves.
