Raymond Chandler

"An average critic never recognizes an achievement when it happens. He explains it after it has become respectable."

"To exceed the limits of a formula without destroying it is the dream of every magazine writer who isn't a hopeless hack."

"When in doubt have a man come through a door with a gun in his hand."

-- "Introduction," The Simple Art of Murder (1950).
