“Anyone who believes you can’t change history has never tried to write his memoirs.” ~ David Ben-Gurion
“Memoirs are a well-known form of fiction.” ~ Frank Harris
“Some people think memoirs should be held to a perfect journalistic standard. Some people don’t. Obviously I don’t. My goal was never to create or to write a perfect journalistic standard of my life. It was always to be as literature.” ~ James Frey
