Things We Find Out

Woody Allen writes:
Probably, if my parents had pushed along more cultural lines I might have started out being a more serious writer, because that's what has always interested me. But I had no cultural background whatsoever, and I mean absolutely none. I grew up in a typical noisy ethnic family in Brooklyn. I didn't go to a play until I was about eighteen years old, almost never went to a museum, listened only to popular music, and never read at all.
~from Woody Allen on Woody Allen 

This comes from a famous Canadian writer:
"A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life."
- Robertson Davies

"Most of the basic material a writer works with is acquired before the age of fifteen."
– Willa Cather

"It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn’t give it up because by that time I was too famous".
– Robert Benchley
