Nuair a chuireas ceiste air ar an fáth go raibh a cuid leabhair le fáilt saor in aisce, dúit Gabriel liom:

“Is mór an trua nach bhfuilim in ann iad go léir a chur ar fáil saor in aisce. 

Ní “liomsa” aon rud atá scríofa agam.

Ní liomsa solas na gealaí, ní liomsa an fharraige, ní liomsa an boladh a thagann ón rós, ní liomsa cantain bhinn na n-éan – ní liom an chuach, ná ní leatsa í!

Ní liomsa iad mo chuid leabhar – ach amháin na leabhair sin a bhfuil slabhraí orthu ag foilsitheoirí.”
