~Carol Jago, Past President of National Council of Teachers of English (@CarolJago)
PT: Everyone needs encouragement. I think you need someone to say, at some stage, particularly someone not in your family, "I read you" or "I saw you onstage"--whatever it is. "Good going. You've got it."
AM: Who did that for you?
PT: V.S. Naipaul. He said, "You'll be fine."----
