I think that I'm busy in the present, and I don't want to go back. Well, there's been an unauthorized biography, and you can't stop them. It didn't worry me.

Albert Finney, actor

It means that no matter what you write, be it a biography, an autobiography, a detective novel, or a conversation on the street, it all becomes fiction as soon as you write it down.

Guillermo Cabrera Infante, novelist

I just love biography, and I'm fascinated by people who have shifted our destinies or our points of view.

Richard Attenborough, actor

Mills insisted that a sociologist's proper subject was the intersection of biography and history.

Todd Gitlin, sociologist

The big biography of Lincoln necessarily had to do so much with his political career, his ambitions, his accomplishments in public, with less time to spend on his private life, his inner life, and I thought this might be a way of getting at that.

David Herbert Donald, historian

Biography can be the most middle-class of all forms, the judgment of little people avenging themselves on the great.

Edmund White, novelist

Perfect objectivity is always impossible, no matter who writes a person's biography.

Robert Hall, clergyman

The Holocaust is a central event in many people's lives, but it also has become a metaphor for our century. There cannot be an end to speaking and writing about it. Besides, in Israel, everyone carries a biography deep inside him.

The art of biography is different from geography. Geography is about maps, but biography is about chaps.

Norman Spinrad, author

I'm narrating the television series Biography. I'm still involved in my music - I have a new album out. I have an animated project in development. I'm writing a lot of things and you never know if one of them is going to become a six or seven year project.

Bill Mumy, actor

Geography is about maps, but biography is about chaps.
