Alexandre Dumas, born 24 July 1802, died 5 December 1870, was a French writer. He is most famous for historical adventure novels, including The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers.

Quotes on writing:

  1. One’s work may be finished someday, but one’s education never.
  2. There are two distinct sorts of ideas: Those that proceed from the head and those that emanate from the heart.
  3. Infatuated, half through conceit, half through love of my art, I achieve the impossible working as no one else ever works.
