I should imagine that even a man who compiles a railway timetable is thinking much more about what a lark it all is than of the cheque he is going to get when he turns in the completed script. Watch his eyes sparkle with an impish light as he puts a very small a against the line 4.51 arr. 6.22 knowing that the reader will not notice it and turn to the bottom of the page, where it says (a) On Saturdays only but will dash off with his suitcase and golf clubs all merry and bright, arriving in good time at the station on the afternoon of Friday. Money is the last thing that such a writer has in mind. - Wodehouse on Wodehouse
I know there are a whole lot of writers whom I have not read and perhaps never will. But the more I read Wodehouse the less I care about that.
