Harlan Ellison Quote

I've been on my own since I was 13. I grew up having to use my wits. My parents were not wealthy. We weren't poor, but we had a lot of meals with noodles. I was born during the Depression. My parents died pretty much penniless. Every dollar I've ever made I earned myself. I don't believe in luck. Louis Pasteur said, "Chance favors the prepared mind." The smarter you are, the more you know, the better. I was the only Jew in town and I was my generation's Bart Simpson. I knew the world could be mine.
