These aren't quotes. These are excerpts from his novels. 24.140.112.117 18:14, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Some of them are excerpts from his essays. What's your point? --Paul A 05:04, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Quote clarification[edit]

Some have it "When in doubt, have a man come through a door with a gun", Others, including The UK's 'The Guardian' Newspaper, have it "If in doubt, have three guys come through the door with guns"

The quote cited in the article is correct, as verified in the 1968 edition, pp. xii–xiii. Though he may have restated it differently another time, don't believe everything attributed at a memorial. ~ Ningauble 13:49, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
