Samuel Richardson, novelist

My dad said, 'The thing that I was told that was really helpful was that I mustn't be afraid of the things I was afraid of when I was five years old'.

My daddy died when I was two years old. My mother raised my two older brothers and me. And we couldn't have had a better situation.
