A quote from Robertson Davies

I just started Davies' Cornish Trilogy, and I'm stunned by the quality of his writing.  Clear, sharp prose, very lively and an utter delight to read.  I'm a late arrival to Davies, though, so I looked him up on wikipedia, and found this quote:

"I don't want a word-processor. I process my own words. Helpful people assure me that a word-processor would save me a great deal of time. But I don't want to save time. I want to write the best book I can, and I have whatever time it takes to make that attempt."

A man after my own heart.
