Neil Gaiman’s stories are populated by slightly askew things from our world. There are people who are just a little inhuman. Maybe they have buttons for eyes or can summon gold coins in their hands. Or maybe our dreams actually happen in a land ruled over by a singular Sandman.
Gaiman’s known for his unrestricted imagination. He’s written books, comic books, and screenplays. As far as matters of imagination go, Gaiman’s the one to listen to. So if you feel your mind can use a bit of expansion, let’s listen to what the master has to say.
1. Stories may well be lies, but they are good lies that say true things, and which can sometimes pay the rent.
2. People think dreams aren’t real just because they aren’t made of matter, of particles. Dreams are real. But they are made of viewpoints, of images, of memories and puns and lost hopes.
3. Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft were written by men.
4. You get what anybody gets – you get a lifetime.
5. Picking five favorite books is like picking the five body parts you’d most like not to lose.
6. All your questions can be answered, if that is what you want. But once you learn your answers, you can never unlearn them.
7. Even nothing cannot last forever.
8. Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.
9. He had noticed that events were cowards: they didn’t occur singly, but instead they would run in packs and leap out at him all at once.
10. A book is a dream that you hold in your hands.
