Editors quotes by Daniel H. Wilson
#1. I wrote a query letter to an editor - a friend of a friend. The editor called me an idiot, told me never to contact an editor directly, and then recommended three literary agents he had worked with before. Laurie Fox was one of them, and I've never looked back. #Quote by Daniel H. Wilson
Editors quotes by William Allen White
#2. Peace without justice is tyranny. #Quote by William Allen White
Editors quotes by Yosa Buson
#3. The end of spring- the poet is brooding about editors. #Quote by Yosa Buson
Editors quotes by Joe Dante
#4. There's a way of thinking that comes with being an editor that is incredibly useful on the set. It's not just a vocabulary thing or a right-to-left thing or script supervisor stuff. It's a way of thinking about the film and the shots and the way they fit together, what you need and what you don't need, and what you can get away with if you have to. #Quote by Joe Dante
Editors quotes by Jenna Bush
#5. I was sports editor for my high school newspaper, but I think I shied away from journalism. #Quote by Jenna Bush
Editors quotes by Lynn Povich
#6. What led to our revolt? Why did our generation suddenly realize that our place in society was changing--and had to change? In part, we were carried by the social and political currents of our time...But even with the social winds in our sails and the women's movement behind us, each of us had to overcome deeply held values and traditional social strictures. The struggle was personally painful and professionally scary. What would happen to us? Would we win our case? Would we change the magazine? Or would we be punished? Who would succeed and who would not? And if our revolt failed, were our careers over--or were they over anyway? We knew that filing the suit legally protected us from being fired, but we didn't trust the editors not to find some way to do us in.

Whatever happened, the immediate result is that it put us all on the line. "The night after the press conference I realized there was no turning back," said Lucy Howard. "Once I stepped up and said I wanted to be a writer, it was over. I wanted to change Newsweek, but everything was going to change. #Quote by Lynn Povich
Editors quotes by Jay Carr
#7. [Walter Burns is] the archetypal managing editor-ruthless, self-righteous, manipulative, downright maniacal if it means an exclusive, especially one that it can congratulate itself for on its own front page. #Quote by Jay Carr
Editors quotes by David Sedaris
#8. I tend to write things seven times before I show them to my editor. I write them seven times, then I take them on tour, read them like a dozen times on tour, then go back to the room and rewrite, read and rewrite ... I would never show him a first draft, because then he's really going to be sick of it by the twelfth draft. #Quote by David Sedaris
Editors quotes by William L. Shirer
#9. Every morning the editors of the Berlin daily newspapers and the correspondents of those published elsewhere in the Reich gathered at the Propaganda Ministry to be told by Dr. Goebbels or by one of his aides what news to print and suppress, how to write the news and headline it, what campaigns to call off or institute and what editorials were desired for the day. In #Quote by William L. Shirer
Editors quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#10. Democracy becomes a government of bullies tempered by editors. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Editors quotes by Erin McKean
#11. Twitter is like overhearing people's conversations, which is exactly what dictionary editors have been wishing we could do for years. #Quote by Erin McKean
Editors quotes by Maxim Behar
#12. The people who have been known as PR experts - and still go by that title - have now turned into a combina- tion of publishers, reporters, and editors.
We are publishers because we own media. We control the social media profiles and pages of our clients. We have their blogs and their websites.
We are reporters because we have to fill up all those media chan- nels with relevant content.
We are editors because that content has got to be created, designed, arranged, structured, and presented in the best way pos- sible so that it can be convincing, attention-grabbing, and - most important - efficient. #Quote by Maxim Behar
Editors quotes by Thelma Schoonmaker
#13. I'd trained to be a diplomat but the state department said I was too liberal. I saw an ad in the New York Times ... a hack Californian editor came to New York to butcher some films and he needed an assistant. For some reason I read it that day and it changed my life. I went to work for him and he was horrible, butchering these masterpieces by Antonioni, Visconti, but I learned enough to know what he was doing wrong. #Quote by Thelma Schoonmaker
Editors quotes by Bernard Haisch
#14. It seems from my unique vantage point as both scientist and editor of JSE that substantial evidence exists of "something going on". #Quote by Bernard Haisch
Editors quotes by Jeffrey Zeldman
#15. Somebody has to pay our editors, writers, journalists, designers, developers, and all the other specialists whose passion and tears go into every chunk of worthwhile web content. #Quote by Jeffrey Zeldman
Editors quotes by Ronald Reagan
#16. A moment I've been dreading. George brought his ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Editors quotes by MaryJanice Davidson
#17. All writers are crazy. So never mind what the editors and your family and your critique group tells you. Submit your manuscripts and keep submitting until you get an offer. Then you can be crazy, with a paycheck. #Quote by MaryJanice Davidson
Editors quotes by Betty Friedan
#18. Whatever I wrote was heretical. It offended the editors of the women's magazines. #Quote by Betty Friedan
Editors quotes by Chris DiBona
#19. Calling EMACS an editor is like calling the Earth a hunk of dirt. #Quote by Chris DiBona
Editors quotes by Louis C.K.
#20. Feeling unsure and lost is part of your path. Don't avoid it. See what those feelings are showing you and use it. #Quote by Louis C.K.
Editors quotes by Liu Wen
#21. The challenge for me, and for Asian models in general has been convincing editors, stylists and photographers that we can have mass appeal, but Asian, especially Chinese models have become a stronger presence. Just a season or two ago, there weren't many models for me to talk with backstage in my native Mandarin. Now I usually have no trouble finding someone at any show. #Quote by Liu Wen
Editors quotes by Peter Landesman
#22. Most editors are just worried about their jobs. They're overwhelmed. They're underpaid. They do the best they can. #Quote by Peter Landesman
Editors quotes by Rebekah Brooks
#23. In a highly competitive newspaper market, every editor needs to appeal to female readers to boost their circulation. #Quote by Rebekah Brooks
Editors quotes by Robert Asprin
#24. Between you and me, I think that may be one of the things that will help with the collaboration, because there are things Eric thinks I'm moving too quickly on, and there are things I think he's dragging out. When it gets to the editor they can arbitrate. #Quote by Robert Asprin
Editors quotes by Lynsey Addario
#25. If I took a month off, I was likely to be replaced by one of the other, say, two hundred freelancers vying to get my assignments. If I took six months off to have a baby, I believed I would be written off by my editors. I was in a man's profession. #Quote by Lynsey Addario
Editors quotes by Elayne Boosler
#26. While editors and newspaper owners currently fret over shrinking readership and lost profits, they do the one thing that insures cutting their own throats; they keep reducing space for the one feature that attracts new young readers in the first place; the comic strips. #Quote by Elayne Boosler
Editors quotes by Tina Brown
#27. Deadlines are a great antidote to insecurity. #Quote by Tina Brown
Editors quotes by Nicholas Stoller
#28. Every day is still exciting. I have like a very good system worked out with my editor. Some directors are in there every day, sitting there in the room with the editor. I lose perspective incredibly quickly, and so what I do is I watch ... I come in the room and give very specific notes and then I go back to my house or in my office and I watch the dailies. #Quote by Nicholas Stoller
Editors quotes by Naomi Campbell
#29. I do feel that I'm talking to someone who's in a totally different place from where I was when I started modeling. I was fortunate enough to have the wonderful designers and amazing photographers around me, and editors that I knew, and if I wanted to ask a question, I asked them. So that gap has broadened a bit. #Quote by Naomi Campbell
Editors quotes by Terri Windling
#30. Since fantasy isn't about technology, the accelleration has no impact at all. But it's changed the lives of fantasy writers and editors. I get to live in England and work for a New York publisher! #Quote by Terri Windling
Editors quotes by Tarun Shanker
#31. What are you - " I paused and it hit me. "Oh heavens, what did you do?"
He shrugged innocently. "Let's just say … that I've been … in a sense … blackmailing key members of London society and editors of the scandal sheets into preserving your reputation."
I gaped at him. "And by 'in a sense,' I mean that's exactly what happened." He smiled broadly at the room.
"You - you're serious?" I found myself half gasping the words but also not finding it terribly hard to believe. Mr. Kent never hid his worse qualities.
He wore them like badges. #Quote by Tarun Shanker
Editors quotes by Garry Trudeau
#32. For the most part, editors no longer view 'Doonesbury' as a rolling provocation, which is fine by me. It makes no sense to intentionally antagonize the very people on whose support you most depend. #Quote by Garry Trudeau
Editors quotes by Daniel Okrent
#33. I think on civilian casualties they could do more. It's actually something I've discussed with the editors involved. They're aware of it, and I'm hopeful that there will be more reporting on that. #Quote by Daniel Okrent
Editors quotes by Justin Bieber
#34. Dare to be a sucky skateboarder or a lousy video editor or a completely crappy golfer. If we do only the stuff we're good at, we never learn anything new. #Quote by Justin Bieber
Editors quotes by Noah Galloway
#35. When we left, we were told it would be another month before the winner was announced. Then I felt really discouraged. Friends were telling me that my injuries and my fitness level guaranteed me the cover. I felt the opposite. I didn't feel I was as fit as the others and I felt like the war was too controversial a topic for the magazine to want to feature a wounded veteran.
I had completely talked myself out of even the slightest possibility of winning by the time I was back on a plane to New York a month later to find out the results. My family didn't believe that I didn't know already. They thought I'd been told and kept asking me about it. But I really didn't know. The winner was being announced live on NBC's Today show. I had made my peace with not winning and Jamie and I were just excited to go to New York and be on Today. We had a layover in Charlotte, North Carolina, and when we landed there I had a voice mail from my friend Billy. His message: "I thought we had to wait to see who won? It's already out!"
I clicked onto my Facebook app and saw that Billy had posted a picture of him and some of his buddies at a truck stop in Kentucky posing with a Men's Health magazine--and I was on the cover! I was shocked. But even then I was convinced this wasn't real. Maybe the editors had decided to give the cover to all three of us and we each had a different region of the country. It felt incredible to see myself on the cover of that magazine but I just wasn't convinced I #Quote by Noah Galloway
Editors quotes by Nate Powell
#36. There's nothing that compares with the time spent all by myself on a creation that is all my own. I still think of my solo work as my 'home planet' in comics, though I've learned to listen much more to editors and trusted friends for feedback. #Quote by Nate Powell
Editors quotes by Truman Capote
#37. Never demean yourself by talking back to a critic, never. Write those letters to the editor in your head, but don't put them on paper. #Quote by Truman Capote
Editors quotes by Bill Keller
#38. Since September 11 2001, editors in America have faced some excruciating choices, as the attempt to wage a war against a new kind of enemy sometimes strained the boundaries of our laws and values. #Quote by Bill Keller
Editors quotes by Charles River Editors
#39. A 2006 Senate Report on the intelligence gathered about Iraq before the war also concluded, "Postwar information indicates that Saddam Hussein attempted, unsuccessfully, to locate and capture al-Zarqawi and that the regime did not have a relationship with, harbor, or turn a blind eye toward Zarqawi. #Quote by Charles River Editors
Editors quotes by T. S. Eliot
#40. Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Editors quotes by Greg Gutfeld
#41. The Islamophobia phobes, (ph) the writers and the editors and the talking heads who deny an existence of evil while blaming those who speak up. There no difference - different than the apologists for communism. As communism killed millions, they, they denied it. #Quote by Greg Gutfeld
Editors quotes by Jean De La Fontaine
#42. Every newspaper editor owes tribute to the devil. #Quote by Jean De La Fontaine
Editors quotes by Elinor Lipman
#43. An early editor characterized my books as 'romantic comedy for intelligent adults.' I think people see them as funny but kind. I don't set out to write either funny or kind, but it's a voice they like, quirky like me ... And you know, people like happy endings. #Quote by Elinor Lipman
Editors quotes by Nina Garcia
#44. The fashion editor as it used to be has changed. Now you have to wear many hats, and whoever tells you differently is wrong. Now you're on TV, whether you want it or not. #Quote by Nina Garcia
Editors quotes by Carl Bernstein
#45. During discussions in his office, Bradlee frequently picked up an undersize sponge-rubber basketball from the table and tossed it toward a hoop attached by suction cups to the picture window. The gesture was indicative both of the editor's short attention span and of a studied informality. There was an alluring combination of aristocrat and commoner about Bradlee: Boston Brahmin, Harvard, the World War II Navy, press attaché at the U.S. Embassy in Paris, police-beat reporter, news-magazine political reporter and Washington bureau chief of Newsweek.

-- Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward #Quote by Carl Bernstein
Editors quotes by John Farrar
#46. Great editors do not discover nor produce great authors; great authors create and produce great publishers. #Quote by John Farrar
Editors quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#47. The personal opinions of the editors have no kind of weight in the eyes of the public: the only use of a journal is, that it imparts the knowledge of certain facts, and it is only by altering or distorting those facts that a journalist can contribute to the support of his own views. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Editors quotes by Lynn Abbey
#48. Editors of open anthologies actively seek submissions from all comers, established and unknown. They are willing to read whatever the tide washes up at their feet. #Quote by Lynn Abbey
Editors quotes by William Zinsser
#49. The final advantage is the same that applies in every other competitive venture. If you would like to write better than everyone else, you have to want to write better than everyone else. You must take an obsessive pride in the smallest details of your craft. And you must be willing to defend what you've written against the various middlemen--editors, agents, and publishers--whose sights may be different from yours, whose standards are not as high. Too many writers are browbeaten into settling for less than their best. #Quote by William Zinsser
Editors quotes by John Sexton
#50. A photographer needs to be a good editor of negatives and prints! In fact, most of the prints I make are for my eyes only, and they are no good. I find the single most valuable tool in the darkroom is my trash can - that's where most of my prints end up. #Quote by John Sexton
Editors quotes by Jack London
#51. Spoke of the professional men and the artists as villeins. What else are they? One and all, the professors, the preachers, and the editors, hold their jobs by serving the Plutocracy, and their service consists of propagating only such ideas as are either harmless to or commendatory of the Plutocracy. Whenever they propagate ideas that menace the Plutocracy, they lose their jobs, in which case, if they have not provided for the rainy day, they descend into the proletariat and either perish or become working-class agitators. And don't forget that it is the press, the pulpit, and the university that mould public opinion, set the thought-pace of the nation. As for the artists, they merely pander to the little less than ignoble tastes of the Plutocracy. But #Quote by Jack London
Editors quotes by J.R. Moehringer
#52. Write every day; never give up; it's supposed to be difficult; try to find some pleasure and reward in the act of writing, because you can't look for praise from editors, readers, or critics. In other words, tips that are much easier to give than to take. #Quote by J.R. Moehringer
Editors quotes by Irving Penn
#53. Liberman said to me, 'I must cut back on the work you do for Vogue. The editors don't like it. They say the photographs burn on the page . After some years, I began to understand that what they wanted of me was simply a nice, sweet, clean-looking image of a lovely young woman. #Quote by Irving Penn
Editors quotes by Astra Taylor
#54. One thing that's important to point out is that this kind of populism has a long and mixed history. It's part of this tradition of problematic anti-elitism where the elites are always the liberal class - the intellectuals, the professors, the artists - and not the economic elites. Why are we so mad and aggrieved at newspaper editors but not at corporate executives? I think we need to look more at the latter, at economic elites. #Quote by Astra Taylor
Editors quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#55. Lincoln worked Christmas Eve, then went out for dinner with a bunch of the copy editors. There was a casino across the river with a twenty-four-hour buffet. "With crab legs tonight," Chuck said, "on account of Christ's birth. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Editors quotes by Tiffany Madison
#56. While writing is like a joyful release, editing is a prison where the bars are my former intentions and the abusive warden my own neuroticism. #Quote by Tiffany Madison
Editors quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#57. MATTHEW, MARK, AND LUKE tell the story of Jesus in ways similar to one another (which is why they're often called the synoptic gospels - with a similar optic, or viewpoint). Many details differ (and the differences are quite fascinating), but it's clear the three compositions share common sources. The Fourth Gospel tells the story quite differently. These differences might disturb people who don't understand that storytelling in the ancient world was driven less by a duty to convey true details accurately and more by a desire to proclaim true meaning powerfully. The ancient editors who put the New Testament together let the differences stand as they were, so each story can convey its intended meanings in its own unique ways. #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Editors quotes by Norman Mailer
#58. The sole virtue of losing your short-term memory is that it does free you to be your own editor. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Editors quotes by Jenna Bush
#59. [My mom] is quite the strict editor. I feel like maybe she has more of the old-school editing style, which really works in picture books, because you don't want to articulate anything in words that is already shown through the pictures. #Quote by Jenna Bush
Editors quotes by Stacy Schiff
#60. When finally I mustered the courage to tell a novelist friend that I was talking to editors about a biography, her reply was, 'Oh, that's okay. That's not a real book.' #Quote by Stacy Schiff
Editors quotes by George Carlin
#61. The writing is what gives me the joy, especially editing myself for the page, and getting something ready to show to the editors, and then to have a first draft and get it back and work to fix it, I love reworking, I love editing, love love love revision, revision, revision, revision. #Quote by George Carlin
Editors quotes by Candace Bushnell
#62. James is scared about his work. Every time he finishes a piece, he's scared he won't get another one. When he gets another assignment (he always does, but it doesn't make any difference), he's scared he won't make the deadline. When he makes the deadline, he's scared his editor (or editors-there are always faceless editors lurking around in dark little offices at magazines), won't like the piece. When they like the piece, he's scared that it won't get published. When it does get published, he's scared that no one will read it or talk about it and all his hard work will have been for nothing. If people do talk about it (and they don't always, in which case he's scared that he's not a great journalist), he's scared that he won't be able to pull it off again. #Quote by Candace Bushnell
Editors quotes by Pete Dexter
#63. Spooner noticed another, smaller Marine Corps tattoo encircling Marlin's ankle: Semper Fi Forever. Everywhere he went these days, Spponer witnessed America's crying need for more copy editors. #Quote by Pete Dexter
Editors quotes by Maxim Behar
#64. One implication is that we, the people who have been known as PR experts - and still go by that title - have now turned into a combination of publishers, reporters, and editors. #Quote by Maxim Behar
Editors quotes by Bobbi Romans
#65. A good editor is like tinsel to a Christmas Tree ... they add the perfect amount of sparkle without being gaudy. #Quote by Bobbi Romans
Editors quotes by Catherine Marshall
#66. Proofs of the week's paper were spread out on what I grandly called my desk. This was a rickety wooden table against the side wall outside the Editor's office. #Quote by Catherine Marshall
Editors quotes by Ricky Jay
#67. I always read what I write out loud, and I did that long before any radio thing. My editor finds that unusual. #Quote by Ricky Jay
Editors quotes by Daryl Hannah
#68. I've been using the same editor, thankfully, she's been sticking with me, but I've been doing it full-on guerilla style ... I haven't gotten any public sponsor or anything, because I don't want to seem like I'm trying to sell any particular thing. #Quote by Daryl Hannah
Editors quotes by Daniel Quinn
#69. When you send off a short story, it sits on the editor's desk in the same pile with stories by the most famous and honored names in present-day writing-and it's not going to be accepted unless it's as good as theirs. (And it'll probably have to be better.) #Quote by Daniel Quinn
Editors quotes by Charles Colson
#70. Over the years since I became a Christian, I have always deliberately explained that I have 'accepted Jesus Christ.' These words are invariably translated into 'Colson's professed religious experience.' I discovered that one major U.S. daily, as a matter of policy, will not print the two words Jesus Christ together; when combined, the editor says, it represents an editorial judgment. #Quote by Charles Colson
Editors quotes by Maxine Cheshire
#71. [To the editor of the Harlan, Kentucky, Daily Enterprise, as a kindergartener:] I know everything that goes on in this town, and if you give me a job so will you. #Quote by Maxine Cheshire
Editors quotes by Kin Hubbard
#72. Hon Editor Cale Fluhart was a power politically fer years, but he never got prominent enough t' have his speeches garbled. #Quote by Kin Hubbard
Editors quotes by Adam Hamilton
#73. The human authors and editors of the Old Testament brought their own experiences and presuppositions to the task of writing. We don't often think about this when we read the Bible. #Quote by Adam Hamilton
Editors quotes by Eli Pariser
#74. In a broadcast society, there were these gatekeepers, the editors, and they controlled the flows of information. Along came the Internet and it swept them out of the way, and it allowed all of us to connect together, and it was awesome. But that's not actually what's happening right now. #Quote by Eli Pariser
Editors quotes by Annie Dillard
#75. Learn punctuation; it is your little drum set, one of the few tools oyu have to signal the reader where the beats and emphases go. (If you get it wrong, any least thing, the editor will throw your manuscript out.) Punctuation is not like musical notation; it doesn't indicate the length of pauses, but instead signifies logical relations. There are all sorts of people out there who know these things very well. You have to be among them even to begin. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Editors quotes by Sylvester Stallone
#76. Nothing's harder than writing. There's no comparison. With directing, you can bounce a lot of ideas around. There's tremendous support - you've got editors and sound mixers. With writing, it's all you, and it's just crippling when people tear up your pages. #Quote by Sylvester Stallone
Editors quotes by Mick Garris
#77. My first teacher was Steven Spielberg. I worked on Amazing Stories. That was my first job, as a writer and as a story editor. Watching him and his command of the tools of filmmaking, and his admiration for writing and the story itself, was the greatest lesson I ever had. #Quote by Mick Garris
Editors quotes by Robert Gottlieb
#78. Like all editors, I assume, I'm a reactor. #Quote by Robert Gottlieb
Editors quotes by Crawford Kilian
#79. Here's a slightly outrageous tip: Don't respect the text. Just because you've written something down doesn't mean it has a right to exist. If your internal editor can find a better way to say something, junk the original version and go with the new one. If you can't find a better way, and the passage really isn't good, junk it. #Quote by Crawford Kilian
Editors quotes by Jean De La Fontaine
#80. Every editor of newspapers pays tribute to the devil. #Quote by Jean De La Fontaine
Editors quotes by Jami Attenberg
#81. Writers have a job to do. Editors do, too. You have to stand ground and cede ground on a case by case basis. When an editor tells me something isn't working and I still believe in it, I tend to think it just isn't working hard enough. #Quote by Jami Attenberg
Editors quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#82. Editors, huh? By golly ... you're right. They're everywhere. What is this place? Heaven? #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Editors quotes by Stephen Ambrose
#83. There are many more want-to-be writers out there than good editors. #Quote by Stephen Ambrose
Editors quotes by The Editors Of True Story And True Confessions
#84. Heartache is a part of life," she said, her voice very soft. "We have to accept it along with happiness if we ever hope to live fully. #Quote by The Editors Of True Story And True Confessions
Editors quotes by Edna Buchanan
#85. I always warn aspiring reporters to observe three basic rules: 1. Never trust an editor. 2. Never trust an editor. 3. Never trust an editor. #Quote by Edna Buchanan
Editors quotes by Ellen J. Barrier
#86. Great writers experience their dreams. They put them on paper, where others can read about them. #Quote by Ellen J. Barrier
Editors quotes by Dean Koontz
#87. There's never any humongous next draft. I know a writer who every time he finished a novel - you would know his name very well - but his editor would come and live with him for a month. And they would go through the manuscript together. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Editors quotes by Carl Bernstein
#88. Deep Throat stamped his foot. 'A conspiracy like this ... a conspiracy investigation ... the rope has to tighten slowly around everyone's neck. You build convincingly from the outer edges in, you get ten times the evidence you need against the Hunts and the Liddys. They feel hopelessly finished - they may not talk right away, but the grip is on them. Then you move up and do the same thing at the next level. If you shoot too high and miss, the everyone feels more secure. Lawyers work this way. I'm sure smart reporters must, too. You've put the investigation back months. It puts everyone on the defensive - editors, FBI agents, everybody has to go into a crouch after this.'
Woodward swallowed hard. He deserved the lecture.
Carl Bernstein, Bob Woodward #Quote by Carl Bernstein
Editors quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#89. A book that is made up of only great sentences is not necessarily a great book. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Editors quotes by Amor Towles
#90. But after the war, when editors like Martin Durk came to prominence by trumpeting the timely death of the novel, Parish opted for a reflective silence. He stopped taking on projects and watched with quiet reserve as his authors died off one by one--at peace with the notion that he would join them soon enough in that circle of Elysium reserved for plot and substance and the judicious use of the semicolon. #Quote by Amor Towles
Editors quotes by Italo Calvino
#91. You've come about your manuscript? It's with the reader; no, I'm getting that wrong, it's been read, very interesting, of course, now I remember! Remarkable sense of language, heartfelt denunciation, didn't you receive our letter? We're very sorry to have to tell you, in the letter it's all explained, we sent it some time ago, the mail is so slow these days, you'll receive it of course, our list is overloaded, unfavorable economic situation. Ah, you see? You've received it. And what else did it say? Thanking you for having allowed us to read it, we will return it promptly. Ah, you've come to collect the manuscript? No, we haven't found it, do just be patient a little longer, it'll turn up, nothing is ever lost here, only today we found a manuscript we'd been looking or these past ten years, oh, not another ten years, we'll find yours sooner, at least let's hope so, we have so many manuscripts, piles this high, if you like we'll show them to you, of course you want your own, not somebody else's, that's obvious, I mean we preserve so many manuscripts we don't care a fig about, we'd hardly throw away yours which means so much to us, no, not to publish it, it means so much for us to give it back to you. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Editors quotes by Duane Swierczynski
#92. Comic scripts are full-on collaborations, not only with your artist, but your editors and colorists and letterers and PR folks, etc. Writing comics reminds me of my days as a journalist, working on a staff of fun, smart people. #Quote by Duane Swierczynski
Editors quotes by Cari Beauchamp
#93. While Photoplay mused that "Strangely enough, women outrank men as continuity writers," it wasn't strange to them. Women had always found sanctuary in writing; it was accomplished in private and provided a creative vent when little was expected or accepted of a woman other than to be a good wife and mother. For Frances and her friends, a virtue was derived from oppression; with so little expected of them, they were free to accomplish much. They were drawn to a business that, for a time, not only allowed, but welcomed women. And Cleo Madison, Gene Gauntier, Lois Weber, Ruth Ann Baldwin, Dorothy Arzner, Margaret Booth, Blanche Sewall, Anne Bauchens, and hundreds of other women flocked to Hollywood, where they could flourish, not just as actresses or writers, but also as directors, producers, and editors. With few taking moviemaking seriously as a business, the doors were wide open to women. #Quote by Cari Beauchamp
Editors quotes by Howard Shore
#94. To make good films, you have to have a good relationship and good collaboration as composer-director, composer-editor, composer-production designer-actor because you're working with the actors on screen. #Quote by Howard Shore
Editors quotes by Lawrence Venuti
#95. General editors' preface The growth of translation studies as a separate discipline is a success story of the 1980s. The subject has developed in many parts of the world and is clearly destined to continue developing well into the twenty-first century. Translation studies brings together work in a wide variety of fields, including linguistics, literary study, history, anthropology, psychology, and economics. This series of books will reflect the breadth of work in translation studies and will enable readers to share in the exciting new developments that are taking place at the present time. #Quote by Lawrence Venuti
Editors quotes by X.J. Kennedy
#96. Poetry is probably the one field of writing in which it is a mistake to try to psych out editors. In fact, specific marketing advice can sometimes harm the novice poet by enticing him to pursue fashions. The poet's best hope is to sound like nobody else, The finest, most enduring poetry constructs a marketplace of its own. #Quote by X.J. Kennedy
Editors quotes by Phyllis A. Whitney
#97. As good as' always spells mediocrity. But when a writer's work is in competition with all those thousands of other manuscripts that pour over an editor's desk, he cannot afford to be 'as good as'; he (or she) must be 'better than. #Quote by Phyllis A. Whitney
Editors quotes by Jack Germond
#98. Most of the good people of my generation ... had offers to become editors, but the thought of going inside was just absolutely horrifying. #Quote by Jack Germond
Editors quotes by William Zinsser
#99. All writers should strive to deliver something fresh-something editors or readers won't know they want until they see it. #Quote by William Zinsser
Editors quotes by Nora Roberts
#100. Every writer needs an editor. I don't care how good you are or think you are. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Editors quotes by Metropolitan Home
#101. I Dolci Libri

Rizzoli, the famed Italian purveyor of art tomes has over the years produced an entire library of gorgeous coffee table books. With the additional Universe imprint and partnerships with Flammarion and Skira the company has upped the ante on modernism in hardcover with a stack of architecture and design books that are as much nourishment for the mind as cannoli for the eye. Rizzoli's editors have their fingers on the pulse of what's happening right now and next in design in the United States and abroad. #Quote by Metropolitan Home
Editors quotes by Anna Bondoc
#102. I don't think we can afford to emulate the beauty editors of fashion magazines, airbrushing out blemishes and hawking a political ideal in which progressive people have no acne, no stupid remarks. #Quote by Anna Bondoc
Editors quotes by Roger Ebert
#103. It goes to show you how we in the press so often miss the big stories that are right under our noses. There is a famous journalistic legend about the time a young reporter covered the Johnstown flood of 1889. The kid wrote: God sat on a hillside overlooking Johnstown today and looked at the destruction He had wrought. His editor cabled back: Forget flood. Interview God. #Quote by Roger Ebert
Editors quotes by Christopher Darden
#104. The main thing is that you have a good editor - one that believes in you and who will give you the feedback that you need to produce a good book. #Quote by Christopher Darden
Editors quotes by Jason Katims
#105. There's something about the alchemy of the show - the actors, the writers, the directors, the editors - that makes 'Parenthood' unique. You get so deeply embedded with these characters because you go through life with them, and that's our priority. #Quote by Jason Katims
Editors quotes by James Franco
#106. Of course there are some actors that are better than others and performances that are better than others, but they're always embedded in the greater film. They are mediated through the work of so many other people: the director directs, the lighter sets the scene, the editors edit, the music gets put to it. #Quote by James Franco
Editors quotes by Cecily Von Ziegesar
#107. Back in my days as a children's book editor, my superiors caught on to the fact that teenagers were using the Internet to gossip about each other, and thought it might be nifty to develop a series of books about an anonymous high-school blogger who gossips about her classmates. The concept was passed on to me. #Quote by Cecily Von Ziegesar
Editors quotes by Lorin Stein
#108. When I was a book editor, I got used to being told that my tastes were dark or edgy. These are not words that would've occurred to me, but I was told that enough that I have to believe it's true - that I like things that some other people find off-putting or upsetting. My job is to publish stuff that I really, really care about. That might mean that it doesn't sit well with everybody. #Quote by Lorin Stein
Editors quotes by Betty Friedan
#109. I realized that what I was saying was threatening, somehow, to the editors of women's magazines. That it threatened the very world they were trying to paint, what I then called the "feminine mystique." #Quote by Betty Friedan
Editors quotes by Dave Barry
#110. If you look at any list of great modern writers such as Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, you'll notice two things about them: 1. They all had editors. 2. They are all dead. Thus we can draw the scientific conclusion that editors are fatal. #Quote by Dave Barry
Editors quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#111. I am occasionally desired by congenital imbeciles and the editors of magazines to say something about the writing of detective fiction "from the woman's point of view." To such demands, one can only say "Go away and don't be silly. You might as well ask what is the female angle on an equilateral triangle. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Editors quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#112. Until the lion learns how to write, every story will glorify the hunter," says an African proverb. But what if the lionesses write eloquently but the editors prefer the hunters' version? #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Editors quotes by Steve Martin
#113. I take editing seriously. It's a joy to edit. I always hand a manuscript to several editors and can't wait to get back their notes and see what they've said. I don't criticize myself for making blunders here and there, because it's just natural. You write in chunks, and you may not remember that that sentence you wrote yesterday had the same word repeated three times. I do enjoy that. I love the feeling of repairing. Repairing is really nice. #Quote by Steve Martin
Editors quotes by Sarah Dessen
#114. I have SO many books I didn't sell. Some my agent rejected outright, others made it all the way to my editor to be turned away. Not everything is a winner, which is tough when you've devoted eight or nine months of your life to something. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Editors quotes by Dorothea Brande
#115. I suspect that every teacher hears the same complaints, but that, being seldom a practicing author, he tends to dismiss them as out of his field, or to see in them evidence that the troubled student has not the true vocation. Yet it is these very pupils who are most obviously gifted who suffer from these disabilities, and the more sensitively organized they are the higher the hazard seems to them. Your embryo journalist or hack writer seldom asks for help of any sort; he is off after agents and editors while his more serious brother-in-arms is suffering the torments of the damned because of his insufficiencies. Yet instruction in writing is oftenest aimed at the oblivious tradesman of fiction, and the troubles of the artist are dismissed or overlooked. #Quote by Dorothea Brande
Editors quotes by Andrei Tarkovsky
#116. My objective is to create my own world and these images which we create mean nothing more than the images which they are. We have forgotten how to relate emotionally to art: we treat it like editors, searching in it for that which the artist has supposedly hidden. It is actually much simpler than that, otherwise art would have no meaning. You have to be a child - incidentally children understand my pictures very well, and I haven't met a serious critic who could stand knee-high to those children. We think that art demands special knowledge; we demand some higher meaning from an author, but the work must act directly on our hearts or it has no meaning at all. #Quote by Andrei Tarkovsky
Editors quotes by Charles River Editors
#117. Apparently Henry had all the qualities necessary to make him popular in Virginian society, at least according to Jefferson: "His manners had something of coarseness in them; his passion was music, dancing and pleasantly. He excelled in the last, and it attached everyone to him. You ask some account of his mind and information at this period; but you will recollect that we were almost continually engaged in the usual revelries of the season. The occasion perhaps, as much as his idle disposition, prevented his engaging in any conversation which might give the measure either of his mind or information." While #Quote by Charles River Editors
Editors quotes by Raniero Cantalamessa
#118. There is a lot of talk about the betrayal of Judas, and people are not aware that it is happening again. Christ is being sold again, not to the leaders of the Sanhedrin for thirty pieces of silver but to editors and booksellers for millions of dollars ... #Quote by Raniero Cantalamessa
Editors quotes by Edward Albee
#119. The difference between critics and audiences is that one is a group of humans and one is not. #Quote by Edward Albee
Editors quotes by John L'Heureux
#120. Uninvited criticism is insult. #Quote by John L'Heureux
Editors quotes by Jeffrey Zeldman
#121. I worry about every newspaper. I worry about the financial undertaking, and I worry that somehow the loss of the sale of the paper version will affect their ability to have journalists and editors and producers. We really need those. #Quote by Jeffrey Zeldman
Editors quotes by Rowan Pelling
#122. When I was editor of the Erotic Review I fielded endless phone calls from elderly readers who thought I might like to pop round in my spare time and thrash them #Quote by Rowan Pelling
Editors quotes by Yuriy Tarnawsky
#123. I was always creatively stubborn, adverse to editing by others, and wanted to use the kind of Ukrainian we spoke among ourselves rather than the more artificial prescribed literary Ukrainian. The problem was the greatest in prose, where editors would change my language because "it sounded better this way." My poetry they left alone probably out of deference to that hallowed genre. #Quote by Yuriy Tarnawsky
Editors quotes by Fred Saberhagen
#124. I guess if one set of my books was selling like Stephen King's, and the other wasn't selling at all, editors would want me to do the ones that sold like Stephen King's. But they seem to be willing to let me pick what I want to do next. #Quote by Fred Saberhagen
Editors quotes by George Herbert
#125. Critics are like brushers of noblemen's clothes. #Quote by George Herbert
Editors quotes by Matthew Syed
#126. Studies have shown that we are often so worried about failure that we create vague goals, so that nobody can point the finger when we don't achieve them. We come up with face-saving excuses, even before we have attempted anything.

We cover up mistakes, not only to protect ourselves from others, but to protect us from ourselves. Experiments have demonstrated that we all have a sophisticated ability to delete failures from memory, like editors cutting gaffes from a film reel - as we'll see. Far from learning from mistakes, we edit them out of the official autobiographies we all keep in our own heads. #Quote by Matthew Syed
Editors quotes by S.N. Deinscheiss
#127. To my editors, I graciously thank you. I now know "is" and "was" aren't the same thing. It's the periods and commas that got me. Can't see the darn things. #Quote by S.N. Deinscheiss
Editors quotes by Stephen King
#128. You'd think that the ability to write lucid prose would be the bottom line for any publishing novelist, but it is not so ... You would expect that proofreaders and copy editors would pick this sort of stuff up even if the writers of such embarrassing English do not, but many of them seem as illiterate as the writers they are trying to bail out. #Quote by Stephen King
Editors quotes by Ken Follett
#129. I think more people should shoot newspaper editors ... it might improve the press #Quote by Ken Follett
Editors quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#130. If an editor can only make people angry enough, they will write half his newspaper for him for nothing. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Editors quotes by Andre Leon Talley
#131. It's incorrect to assume you can be a fashion editor because you blog, if you don't have experience to look at fashion in a professional way. #Quote by Andre Leon Talley
Editors quotes by Mike Royer
#132. If you ever go to talk to an editor you don't want to be able to turn down a job because you can't do what is necessary. #Quote by Mike Royer
Editors quotes by Nancy Kress
#133. The truth is, you have about three paragraphs in a short story, three pages in a novel, to capture that editor's attention enough for her to finish your story. #Quote by Nancy Kress
Editors quotes by Editors Of Storey Publishing's Country Wisdom Bulletins
#134. NATURAL FLEA PROTECTION FOR DOGS An easy way to protect your dog from fleas is to apply a drop or two of eucalyptus essential oil on top of her head and ears, down her spine, and on her tail. Aromatic #Quote by Editors Of Storey Publishing's Country Wisdom Bulletins
Editors quotes by Mark Twain
#135. That is a society editor, sitting there elegantly dressed, with his legs crossed in that indolent way, observing the clothes the ladies wear, so that he can describe them for his paper and make them out finer than they are and get bribes for it and become wealthy. #Quote by Mark Twain
Editors quotes by Israel Zangwill
#136. Editors are constantly on the watch to discover new talents in old names. #Quote by Israel Zangwill
Editors quotes by Alexander Wang
#137. I don't think fashion week will go back to what it used to be because people are realising that the industry is completely changing. It's not just in Bryant Park any more, people are figuring out who their audience is, where they want to show, they aren't really playing by the rules. It's not so much about these editors, these buyers. #Quote by Alexander Wang
Editors quotes by Yves Behar
#138. The role of designers and product makers is to really become much better editors. What kind of functionality is actually needed - and truly delightful - to consumers? Remove all the extraneous stuff. #Quote by Yves Behar
Editors quotes by Eric Wight
#139. Tokyopop's been extraordinary. They approached me to do My Dead Girlfriend - Julie Taylor, one of the senior editors was a huge fan of The O.C. - asked if I'd be interested in creating a book for Tokyopop. My Dead Girlfriend was the book we all agreed upon as being the one that I would do first, and they've just embraced it completely. #Quote by Eric Wight
Editors quotes by Jon Weisman
#140. Novelists may be able to seek advice from readers and editors, but in the end, it is up to them to get the book right. #Quote by Jon Weisman
Editors quotes by Michael Dirda
#141. When I talk to friends and editors about possible projects, especially about projects that might come with a significant cash advance, they usually suggest a biography. Sometimes I'm tempted, but the prospect of spending years researching and writing about someone else's life offends my vanity. #Quote by Michael Dirda
Editors quotes by Jenny Lawson
#142. This book is less a sequel to my last one and more a collection of bizarre essays and conversations and confused thoughts stuck together by spilled boxed wine and the frustrated tears of baffled editors who have no choice but to accept my belief that it's perfectly acceptable to make up something if you need a word that doesn't already exist, and that punctuation is really more of a suggestion than a law. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Editors quotes by John Creasey
#143. Never buy an editor or publisher a lunch or a drink until he has bought an article, story or book from you. This rule is absolute and may be broken only at your peril. #Quote by John Creasey
Editors quotes by Adam Mansbach
#144. The paradox of being in an industry where other people are usually the gatekeepers: publishers, editors - there are a lot of barriers to having control over your career. But coming out of hip-hop, the mindset was always to create your own. #Quote by Adam Mansbach
Editors quotes by Jenny Lawson
#145. (Editor's note: Start over. Sound less ludicrous.) #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Editors quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#146. We were to found a University magazine. A pair of little, active brothers-Livingstone by name, great skippers on the foot, great rubbers of the hands, who kept a book-shop over against the University building-had been debauched to play the part of publishers. We four were to be conjuct editors and, what was the main point of the concern, to print our own works; while, by every rule of arithmetic-that flatterer of credulity-the adventure must succeed and bring great profit. Well, well: it was a bright vision. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Editors quotes by Amish Tripathi
#147. When I write, I tend to be quite cut off from the world. At that point of time, I'm not thinking about editors, publishers or readers. I write the story the way it comes to me. #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Editors quotes by Richard Corliss
#148. In my experience, copy editors, like the stalwart staff I've worked with and learned from in my 34 years at 'TIME,' are linguistic conservatives - the keepers of the flame ignited by the Strunk-White 'Elements of Style,' published in full in 1957 and chosen by 'TIME' as one of the 100 most influential nonfiction books of the past century. #Quote by Richard Corliss
Editors quotes by Garrison Keillor
#149. We writers don't really think about whether what we write is good or not. It's too much to worry about. We just put the words down, trying to get them right, operating by some inner sense of pitch and proportion, and from time to time, we stick the stuff in an envelope and ship it to an editor. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Editors quotes by Sefi Atta
#150. I couldn't decide on a title for my first novel and my editor came up with Everything Good Will Come. After that, I thought I should name my own books.A Bit of Difference seems just right. #Quote by Sefi Atta
Editors quotes by David LaChapelle
#151. My biggest advice would be to take the pictures you want to take. Don't think about the marketplace, what sells or what an editor might say. And don't think about style. It's all bullshit and surface stuff. Style happens. #Quote by David LaChapelle
Editors quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
#152. Great poets are great copy editors. #Quote by Dejan Stojanovic
Editors quotes by Miriam Toews
#153. The requests for blurbs seem to come in waves. I'm not sure what precipitates them. I think it must be excruciating for editors to draft those elaborate letters asking for a blurb, and I know it's torturous for us writers to ask directly. But publishers encourage us to. Rock and a hard place. #Quote by Miriam Toews
Editors quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#154. You have to give an editor something to change, or he gets frustrated. After he pees in it himself, he likes the flavor much better, so he buys it. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Editors quotes by Dolph Lundgren
#155. When you are acting in a film, you have no idea what scene the editor is going to choose. For instance, after you have directed, you feel more comfortable delivering a performance. Because you know the real performance is put together in the editing room. #Quote by Dolph Lundgren
Editors quotes by Graydon Carter
#156. As any editor will tell you, startling newsroom revelations are generally met with queries about where the information came from and how the reporter got it. Seriously startling revelations are followed by the vetting of libel lawyers. #Quote by Graydon Carter
Editors quotes by Leslie Jamison
#157. The publishing industry, unsurprisingly, is full of different people who love different things and express that love in different languages. Find the people, the editors and agents, with whom you share some language, and some sense of what makes literature worth reading. #Quote by Leslie Jamison
Editors quotes by Indira Varma
#158. I depend on good editors and a good director. #Quote by Indira Varma
Editors quotes by Robertson Davies
#159. He types his labored column - weary drudge! Senile fudge and solemn: spare, editor, to condemn these dry leaves of his autumn. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Editors quotes by Cliff Chiang
#160. When coming up with Wonder Woman cover designs, sometimes people will pitch ideas to me, either the writer or the editor. And it's interesting, because I know they're not trying to, but they end up pitching things that end up feeling like damsel-in-distress covers, where the tension comes from her needing to be rescued somehow. And it's something I immediately push back against. #Quote by Cliff Chiang
Editors quotes by Ralph Fiennes
#161. I have a great editor and I enjoy, in a masochistic way, being ruthless about my own performance. There's an initial point in the editing, if you're directing yourself, especially in my case, where you go, "Ouch, ouch, ouch, I can't watch this." And then, there's a point where you become hard-nosed and just take your neurosis away and go, "What's working? That's okay. That's okay. We can lose that, and lose that." You get objective about it. #Quote by Ralph Fiennes
Editors quotes by David Robinson
#162. I think editors are excellent marketers. They know their audience and produce copy to appeal to them - they just don't call it marketing. #Quote by David Robinson
Editors quotes by Emily Deschanel
#163. We've got a great team of editors, that's true. And we work hard so that when we do the couple of takes that they're good takes hopefully. Not always, that's for sure; there are lots of bad ones, but we try to work hard. Clint Eastwood doesn't more than one or two takes in his films. And he makes some good films. #Quote by Emily Deschanel
Editors quotes by Garry Trudeau
#164. I try not to second-guess editors; they're the clients, and I have no expectation that my strip is going to make it into every paper every day. #Quote by Garry Trudeau
Editors quotes by Mary Roach
#165. Editors are more concerned with the first chapters of a book; that's what everyone reads first in the bookstore or in the online sample. #Quote by Mary Roach
Editors quotes by Studs Terkel
#166. After the stock market crash, some New York editors suggested that hearings be held: what had really caused the Depression? They were held in Washington. In retrospect, they make the finest comic reading. The leading industrialists and bankers testified. They hadn't the foggiest notion what had gone bad. You read a transcript of that record today with amazement: that they could be so unaware. This was their business, yet they didn't understand the operation of the economy. The only good witnesses were the college professors, who enjoyed a bad reputation in those years. No professor was supposed to know anything practical about the economy. #Quote by Studs Terkel
Editors quotes by Julius Schwartz
#167. Writers would submit scripts to me, and if I liked one well enough to submit to magazine editors, I had the know-how whether the story was good or bad. #Quote by Julius Schwartz
Editors quotes by John Gardner
#168. One should fight like the devil the temptation to think well of editors. They are all, without exception - at least some of the time, incompetent or crazy. #Quote by John Gardner
Editors quotes by Lidia Yuknavitch
#169. These words "accessible" and "emotionally available" get thrown at us from agents and editors and publishers - or the reverse - if it's not all goo-ey and sentimental we're told it's "cold" or "uncaring" or "emotionally vacant." In other words, responses to women's writing in particular continue to be "gendered." #Quote by Lidia Yuknavitch
Editors quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#170. There is but one art, to omit. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson

Editors quotes by Ed Helms
#172. I'm sure I cause just as much consternation for editors as any other actor, but it definitely makes me feel more comfortable understanding how and why all the different camera setups exist. #Quote by Ed Helms

Editors quotes by Celine Kiernan
#176. On the Hunger Games Fan Race fail and the portrayal of POC in fantasy literature:
It is as if the POC in the text are walking around with a great big red sign over them for some editors and it reads I AM NOT A REAL CHARACTER. I AM A PROBLEM YOU MUST DEAL WITH. The white characters are permitted to saunter about with their physical descriptions hanging out all over the place, but best not make mention of dark skin or woolly/curly hair or dark eyes (Unless, of course, that character is white. None of my white-skinned dark-eyed characters had any problem being described as such. And I'm pretty sure that Sól's curly hair never gave anyone a single pause for thought.) As I said, I understand the desire not to define a POC simply by their physical attributes, and I understand cutting physical descriptions if no other character is described physically – but pussyfooting about in this manner with POC is doing nothing but white wash the characters themselves. It's already much too hard to get readers to latch onto the fact that some characters may not be caucasian, why must we dance about their physical description as if it were some kind of shameful dirty little secret. You know what it reminds me of? It reminds me of the way homosexuality used to only ever be hinted at in texts. It was up to the reader to 'read between the lines' or 'its there if you look for it' and all that total bullshit which used to be the norm. #Quote by Celine Kiernan
Editors quotes by MaryJanice Davidson
#177. I've got a folder full of rejection slips that I keep. Know why? Because those same editors are now calling my agent hoping I'll write a book or novella for them. Things change. A rejection slip today might mean a frantic call to your agent in six months. #Quote by MaryJanice Davidson
Editors quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#178. It's a shame publishers send rejection slips. Writers should get something more substantial than a slip that amounts to a pile of confetti. Publishers should send something heavier. Editors should send out rejection bricks, so at the end of a lot of years, you would have something to show besides a wheelbarrow of rejection slips. Instead you could have enough bricks to build a house. #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Editors quotes by Bill Walsh
#179. Writers' bedtimes vary, but few have been spared the shock of a copy editor's early wake-up call. #Quote by Bill Walsh
Editors quotes by Judith Thurman
#180. The border between editing and ghostwriting is, at its extremes, a bit porous. An editor really improves and sometimes restructures a manuscript and suggests changes. #Quote by Judith Thurman
Editors quotes by Francine Du Plessix Gray
#181. I was just reviewed by Robert Gottlieb, who was my editor at The New Yorker, and he sort of wondered at the fact that I still need to exorcise my parents at my age. I think he makes a basic mistake in thinking that exorcism can ever be total. The exorcism of your parents will still be occurring on your own deathbed. #Quote by Francine Du Plessix Gray
Editors quotes by Joss Whedon
#182. Directing is such alchemy, it's so easy to fail. And I've seen people who are great at their jobs because everybody has a go. Editors, DPs, actors, craft services guy, everybody wants to try it out but it is such a diffuse but necessary set of skills that you never know which one this person might lack. #Quote by Joss Whedon
Editors quotes by Alex Pareene

Editors quotes by Elizabeth Winder
#185. We knew she [Sylvia] was unusual, because of the seriousness with which she was treated, the lofty importance of her job as guest managing editor, and because she was kept fast at her desk when the rest of us were allowed to fool around ... .I remember we discussed how the editors treater her differently from the rest of us, as if she had been pre-recognized as someone they were expecting great things of. #Quote by Elizabeth Winder

Editors quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#188. You ask me. You have asked others before this. You send them to magazines. You compare them with other poems, and you are upset when certain editors reject your work. Now (since you have said you want my advice) I beg you to stop doing that sort of thing. You are looking outside, and that is what you should most avoid right now. No one can advise or help you - no one #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Editors quotes by Gerald Seymour
#189. I don't tend to redraft, I will try to tidy it up, but basically I feel what I write down first has got the impetus, it may be clumsy, it may be repetitive, but a good editor can take that out. That first writing bit is the best thing you will do. #Quote by Gerald Seymour
Editors quotes by Sayed Kashua
#190. I used to give her [my wife] to read the column every week before I sent it to the editors. And sometimes she was so mad - are you crazy? You're not going to send that, or, you're not going to write that about me. So I would go, OK. You have five hours. Go ahead, write the column yourself. #Quote by Sayed Kashua
Editors quotes by Gary Wolf
#191. To the small group of editors and designers who would launch Wired in January 1993, technology represented the future's best hope; but to the media, the tech boom was yesterday's story. #Quote by Gary Wolf

Editors quotes by Steven Pressfield
#193. Writers think in metaphors. Editors work in metaphors. A great reader reads in metaphors.
All are continually asking, "What does this represent? What does it stand for?"
They are trying to take everything one level deeper. When they get to that level, they will try to go deeper again. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Editors quotes by Margaret Atwood
#194. I have never had any problems with editors who wanted me to change my methods or point of view. I pay a lot of attention to editors, but in a different way. They sometimes catch mistakes and help with the order of poems in a book. I do not underestimate them! Indeed, I have been one myself. #Quote by Margaret Atwood

Editors quotes by Charlton Heston
#200. You have to be very careful to view yourself with a somewhat skeptical eye and to remember that you're not here taking down everything I'm saying because you think I'm such a marvelous fellow but because your editors say go get 1,200 words or whatever on Chuck Heston. #Quote by Charlton Heston
