“Hurt Into Poetry: On Poetry and Greece”By Stephanos Papadopoulos
"I don't believe that human existence is just one damn problem after another."
"I am still shocked when I go into major bookstores and find plenty of books about musical performers but none about music listeners."
“I write to entertain. Period.”
"A good story cannot be devised; it has to be distilled."
"I think I became a biographer because I'm obsessively fascinated by people and how they work."
