"Hell Is Other People"

On another occasion his beloved daughter Robyn asked him to suppose he had to choose between her and writing.  Asimov recalled he said, “why, I would choose you, dear.”  And added, “but I hesitated-and she noticed that, too.”
IsaacAsimov: The Foundations of Science Fiction by James Gunn

Recall that Asimov wrote over a hundred books and was published in every category of the Dewey Decimal System.  I have often remarked that I dislike learning much about my favorite authors/artists because I usually think a lot less of them once I have.  This just makes me sad though.
