Writing And Making Love

From Ernest Hemingway on Writing:

"Eased off on the book . . . in May because Dr. said I worked too hard in April, and May fine month to fish and make love to Miss Mary. I have to ease off on makeing love when writing hard as the two things are run by the same motor."

-- to Charles Scribner, 1948.

Here is one from my favourite, Yogi Berra: "Love making is 90% mental; the other half is physical"
