James Lovelock

Saul Bellow

I think that if you grind your spices and keep them in small batches, you can use them in endless ways. The key thing is to have a spice mill or a coffee grinder, and to keep your spices cold and in tightly lidded boxes.
Marcus Samuelsson

I quit my last real job, as a writer at a magazine, when I was twenty-one.

Anne Lamott
