I like to think that if music hadn't existed, I could have invented it.

Harrison Birtwistle

God, the devil, good, evil, it's all in our heads, not in Heaven or Hell, which we also invented. We do not realize that, having invented God, we immediately became His slaves.

Jose Saramago

They say somebody has invented you
but to me this does not sound convincing
for humans invented themselves as well.

Czeslaw Milosz

People think because a novel's invented, it isn't true. Exactly the reverse is the case. Because a novel's invented, it is true. Biography and memoirs can never be wholly true, since they can't include every conceivable circumstance of what happened. The novel can do that. The novelist himself lays it down. His decision is binding.
