Literature as an attitude to life

A quote from Kristine Kathryn Rusch:

I believe in the power of Fiction the way some people believe in the power of God.

Another one from Nancy Moore:

I believe in fiction. I believe that when it comes to understanding what life is all about, imagination trumps fact.

And yet another from Kim Stanley Robinson:

I'm mainly whatever the novel I'm working on at the time needs me to be. Chop wood, carry water—run five miles, write five pages—call it a religion! Not so much Zen Buddhist as Zen Novelist. It should be like:

Q: What's your religion?

A: The novel.
