Interviewer: Do you think you would have been so happy if you had not been a writer?
Wodehouse: No. I think a writer’s life is the ideal life. I can never understand these fellows like Evelyn Waugh who did not always have the idea of being a writer. I always wanted to be a writer.
Interviewer: Do you always enjoy writing?
Wodehouse: Oh, yes. I love writing. I never feel really comfortable unless I am either actually writing or have a story going. I could not stop writing.” —A 1975 interview with P.G. Wodehouse, conducted one month before his death, in the Paris Review.
