Sunday Saying

"Books only partially represent their authors; the writer is always greater than his work."
- Christian Bovee

I love getting into a good book, and a really good series is even better. Such as The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter. I often wonder what the authors are like in real life. I once watched an old rerun of the British "Who's Line Is It Anyway?" and it had JRR Tolkien on it, and I was surprised at how funny he was. I know he must have been extremely intelligent to cme up with the world in his books, but I always imagined him to be very serious, not funny. So it makes me wonder a lot about authors and their true personalities that we don't see in their writing.
