Raymond Chandler's famous advice to writers of private-eye detective novels.

When in doubt, have a man come through the door with a gun in his hand.

Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid... He is the hero, he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor, by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world. (Raymond Chandler) #quotes #quote #quotations #RaymondChandler
