“What can the will do when the heart commands?’
-Louis Dearborn (LaMoore) L’Amour (1908-1988)
Aka Tex Burns
American novelist
When interviewed not long before his death, he was asked which among his
books he liked best. His reply:
I like them all. There's bits and pieces of books that I think are good. I never
rework a book. I'd rather use what I've learned on the next one, and make it
a little bit better. The worst of it is that I'm no longer a kid and I'm just now
getting to be a good writer. Just now.
