From The Correspondence of Shelby Foote & Walker Percy, edited by Jay Tolson
"Well, I ain't doing much, and that's a fact. Enjoy yourself while you can, while you're doing a great work about a great thing that already happened. Because it's a different cup of tea when you get back to making up stories."
From a letter of Walker Percy to Shelby Foote, dated October 19, 1973, when Foote was writing his history of the American Civil War.
