QUOTE: "I feel when I read something [by the others] I’m reading something that counts more than when I read other things… in part because I know them, I know where they’re coming from, I know where they’re going to , I respect them – all those things are part of it. But … I suppose the answer is – the assumption is – the involvement is a passionate one."
