Know Your Enemy

"Fairy-tale rubbish but could be interesting perhaps ... new rubbish dialogue reaches me every other day on wadges of pink paper – and none of it makes my character clear or even bearable. I just think, thankfully, of the lovely bread, which will help me keep going until next April."

Alec Guinness aka Obi-Wan Kenobi on Star Wars, from correspondence quoted in a new biography and subsequently disseminated more widely on the ever excellent Letters Of Note site.
