Quotes for Writers (and people who like quotes) Dorothy L. Sayers
A man once asked me … how I managed in my books to write such natural conversation between men when they were by themselves. … I replied that I had coped with this difficult problem by making my men talk, as far as possible, like ordinary human beings. This aspect of the matter seemed to surprise the other speaker; he said no more, but took it away to chew it over. One of these days it may quite likely occur to him that women, as well as men, when left to themselves, talk very much like human beings also.
