Agents

The agent never receipts his bill, puts his hat on and bows himself out. He stays around forever, not only for as long as you can write anything that anyone will buy, but as long as anyone will buy any portion of any right to anything that you ever did write. He just takes ten per cent of your life.

Raymond Chandler (1888-1959) U.S. writer of detective fiction.

It is well-known what a middleman is: he is a man who bamboozles one party and plunders the other.

Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) British politician and author.

Let every eye negotiate for itself and trust no agent.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

O world, world! thus is the poor agent despised. O traitors and bawds, how earnestly are you set a-work, and how ill requited! Why should our endeavor be so loved, and the performance so loathed?

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.
