“My business career lasted for a fortnight. They were a firm, I remember, of tobacco merchants. I was to go up to Leeds to learn the business and then go abroad. I couldn’t stand my companion. He was an insufferable bore. We would play double noughts and crosses and he always won. What finally got me was when he said, ‘We’ll be able to play this on the way out, won’t we?’ I resigned immediately.” —Graham Greene, the Art of Fiction No. 3
