Poe Novel quotes by Andrew Barger
#1. People talk and rumors follow," I said.
"Most people claim that only a person possessed of the devil could write such horror."
"And what do you think?"
"You are an angel to me, Eddy, but never bet the devil your head."
"That would make a great title for a story," I observed. #Quote by Andrew Barger
Poe Novel quotes by Erin Morgenstern
#2. ...You know how you have real-life time versus story time, how stories leave out the boring bits and condense so much? A long-form RPG has some substance to it, leaves time to wander the desert or have a conversation or hang out in a pub. It might not be the closest thing to real life but pacing-wise it's closer than a movie or a TV show or a novel. #Quote by Erin Morgenstern
Poe Novel quotes by Ford Madox Ford
#3. The novel is a medium of profoundly serious investigation into the human case. #Quote by Ford Madox Ford
Poe Novel quotes by Norman Mailer
#4. It's very bad to write a novel by act of will. I can do a book of nonfiction work that way - just sign the contract and do the book because, provided the topic has some meaning for me, I know I can do it. But a novel is different. A novel is more like falling in love. You don't say, 'I'm going to fall in love next Tuesday, I'm going to begin my novel.' The novel has to come to you. It has to feel just like love. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Poe Novel quotes by William Faulkner
#5. We could live like counts ... If all that money is out there, I might as well hack a little on the side and put the novel off. #Quote by William Faulkner
Poe Novel quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#6. I can't stand it when people say, "If you're writing a novel, you should read this and that." Because it's like giving someone another person's prescription. How do you know that's what they need? #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Poe Novel quotes by Robert E.Lee
#7. Read history, works of truth, not novels and romances #Quote by Robert E.Lee
Poe Novel quotes by Claire Tomalin
#8. As he approached his 28th birthday in February 1840, Dickens knew himself to be famous, successful and tired. He needed a rest, and he made up his mind to keep the year free of the pressure of producing monthly installments of yet another long novel. #Quote by Claire Tomalin
Poe Novel quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#9. Only through destroying myself can I discover the greater power of my spirit. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Poe Novel quotes by Gregory Maguire
#10. [Cat] found a complete set of the works of Edgar Allan Poe, with little tabs of paper sticking out. The were scrawled over with the witch's comments to herself, "Fun!" "Try this, but with exploding feathers!" and "Gotta love him
deeply sick. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Poe Novel quotes by Tim Parks
#11. No one is treated with more patronizing condescension than the unpublished author or, in general, the would-be artist. At best he is commiserated. At worst mocked. He has presumed to rise above others and failed. I still recall a conversation around my father's deathbed when the visiting doctor asked him what his three children were doing. When he arrived at the last and said young Timothy was writing a novel and wanted to become a writer, the good lady, unaware that I was entering the room, told my father not to worry, I would soon change my mind and find something sensible to do. Many years later, the same woman shook my hand with genuine respect and congratulated me on my career. She had not read my books. #Quote by Tim Parks
Poe Novel quotes by B.L. Berry
#12. Simon presses his lips against mine. This dance we share is as natural as breathing. But this isn't just a kiss. Our tongues mesh together, silently writing the opening lines of a novel and I feel it...I feel him on a completely different level. #Quote by B.L. Berry
Poe Novel quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#13. Such, I have long known, is the paradoxical law of all sentiments having terror as a basis. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Poe Novel quotes by David Guterson
#14. I was totally absorbed in the real world, the politics, the history, the news, and I just couldn't find my way into the fictional world ... When I finally could return to writing the novel, it was in fits and starts. #Quote by David Guterson
Poe Novel quotes by Kevin Sites
#15. The past is now the past - done, finished, a part of my life which has been put away as one does a completed novel. Today, I can once again breathe the cool, refreshing air of springtime. Today, I can reflect on my life and accept myself as one who has made mistakes and rectified them. Today, I have found peace of mind. Today, the grave is open and my soul and I are reunited. Tom Saal, November 2010 #Quote by Kevin Sites
Poe Novel quotes by Brian A. McBride
#16. This was a Darkness born of fire. #Quote by Brian A. McBride
Poe Novel quotes by Michael Lowenthal
#17. As sneakily addictive as a game of Pong (which was named, we're told, after the narrator's dad), this zany zip-line of a novel takes the piss out of the Asian-American 'good immigrant' story. Full of charming antiheroes making comically bad choices, the story dazzles us with its absurdity, which makes its eventual wisdom--about lineage, ethnicity, and the meaning of family--all the more wonderfully surprising. #Quote by Michael Lowenthal
Poe Novel quotes by William Gibson
#18. Novels set in imaginary futures are necessarily about the moment in which they are written. #Quote by William Gibson
Poe Novel quotes by T.D. Mulhern
#19. She had an ability to love that went beyond my ability to grasp the slightest concept of what love was. #Quote by T.D. Mulhern
Poe Novel quotes by Charles Bukowski
#20. What will you do?"
"Oh, hell, I'll write a novel about writing the screenplay and making the movie."
"What are you going to call it?"
"Hollywood."
"Hollywood?"
"Yes ... #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Poe Novel quotes by Zhuangzi
#21. The Book of Chuang Tzu is like a travelogue. As such, it meanders between continents, pauses to discuss diet, gives exchange rates, breaks off to speculate, offers a bus timetable, tells an amusing incident, quotes from poetry, relates a story, cites scripture. To try and make it read like a novel or a philosophical handbook is simply to ask it, this travelogue of life, to do something it was never designed to do. And always listen out for the mocking laughter of Chuang Tzu. #Quote by Zhuangzi
Poe Novel quotes by Ronald Blythe
#22. The ordinariness of living to be old is too novel a thing to appreciate. #Quote by Ronald Blythe
Poe Novel quotes by Michael Ellsberg
#23. Learning is available at the library for free; under a tree with a dog-eared paperback; at a job with a boss who gives you responsibility and mentorship; while traveling; while leading a cause, movement, or charity; while writing a novel or composing a poem or crafting a song; while interning, apprenticing, or volunteering; while playing a sport or immersing yourself in a language; while starting a business; and now, while watching a TED talk or taking a Khan Academy class ... #Quote by Michael Ellsberg
Poe Novel quotes by MC Lars
#24. I love writing literary stuff. My favorite writer is definitely Edgar Allan Poe - so imaginative and prolific. My second favorite writer would have to be Shakespeare - I love the emotion and human truths he touches on so beautifully. #Quote by MC Lars
Poe Novel quotes by Ismail Kadare
#25. For me as a writer, Albanian is simply an extraordinary means of expression - rich, malleable, adaptable. As I have said in my latest novel, 'Spiritus,' it has modalities that exist only in classical Greek, which puts one in touch with the mentality of antiquity. #Quote by Ismail Kadare
Poe Novel quotes by Christopher Golden
#26. Some novel lovers have no interest in comics, and some comics fans would never take the time to read a novel. #Quote by Christopher Golden
Poe Novel quotes by Ken Bruen
#27. I always had this notion of a noir novel in Galway. The city is exploding, emigration has reversed, and we are fast becoming a cosmopolitan city. #Quote by Ken Bruen
Poe Novel quotes by Bill Willingham
#28. Perhaps only that revenge is ultimately unsatisfying. It cant make up for the evil done to you, but it can destroy the remaining good in your life. #Quote by Bill Willingham
Poe Novel quotes by Nick Spencer
#29. Every day that we can open our eyes and take a look at the world around us, is another day to be thankful for. It's a chance to remember how far we've come, and to remember how we did it -- by being honest with ourselves about who we are and what we've done. By letting hope back into our lives, and learning to lean on those who care when we're too weak to stand on our own two feet.

It hasn't been easy, and it never will be. After all, every day is also a chance to slide back into the darkness. To live in ourselves and our regrets, instead of this moment. To run away from those that would help us and let self-hatred drive us back into isolation, despair, and destruction.

So let's make a promise this morning -- that we will spend today with our eyes fixed forward.

Step by step, we will do things that help make life better, for ourselves and those around us. Because just as they have forgiven us -- we must also forgive ourselves. #Quote by Nick Spencer
Poe Novel quotes by Cassandra Clare
#30. I appreciate the scientific rigor with which you've approached this project, Anna," said Christopher, who had gotten jam on his sleeve. "Though I don't think I could manage to collect that many names and also pursue science. Much too time-consuming."
Anna laughed. "How many names would you want to collect, then?"
Christopher tilted his head, a brief frown of concentration crossing his face, and did not reply.
"I would only want one," said Thomas.
Cordelia thought of the delicate tracery of the compass rose on Thomas's arm, and wondered if he had any special person in mind.
"Too late for me to only have one," declared Matthew airily. "At least I can hope for several names in a carefully but enthusiastically selected list."
"Nobody's ever tried to seduce me at all," Lucie announced in a brooding fashion. "There's no need to look at me like that, James. I wouldn't say yes, but I could immortalize the experience in my novel."
"It would be a very short novel, before we got hold of the blackguard and killed him," said James.
There was a chorus of laughter and argument. The afternoon sun was sinking in the sky, its rays catching the jeweled hilts of the knives in Anna's mantelpiece. They cast shimmering rainbow patterns on the gold-and-green walls. The light illuminated Anna's shabby-bright flat, making something in Cordelia's heart ache. It was such a homey place, in a way that her big cold house in Kensington was not.
"What about you, C #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Poe Novel quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#31. I continued working without a break, but in the middle of the third story...I felt myself tiring more than if I had been working on a novel. The same thing happened with the fourth. In fact, I did not have the energy to finish them. Now I know why: The effort involved in writing a short story is as intense as beginning a novel, where everything must be defined in the first paragraph: structure, tone, style, rhythm, length, and sometimes even the personality of a character. All the rest is the pleasure of writing, the most intimate, solitary pleasure one can imagine, and if the rest of one's life is not spent correcting the novel, it is because the same iron rigor needed to begin the book is required to end it. But a story has no beginning, no end: Either it works or it doesn't. And if it doesn't, my own experience, and the experience of others, shows that most of the time it is better for one's health to start again in another direction, or toss the story in the wastebasket. Someone, I don't remember who, made the point with this comforting phrase: "Good writers are appreciated more for what they tear up than for what they publish. #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Poe Novel quotes by Fumio Obata
#32. If formality and courtesy take over the feelings . . . how silly and meaningless these things could become. And despite all this, I still take part in it! #Quote by Fumio Obata
Poe Novel quotes by Young-Ha Kim
#33. Novels are food for the leftover hours of life, the in-between times, the moments of waiting. #Quote by Young-Ha Kim
Poe Novel quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#34. If you could be either God's worst enemy or nothing, which would you choose? #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Poe Novel quotes by Nathan Lowell
#35. Specialize in small cast/single reader long fiction so I only compete against other podcasts of novels in that form. #Quote by Nathan Lowell
Poe Novel quotes by Dean Koontz
#36. Writing a novel is like making love, but it's also like having a tooth pulled. Pleasure and pain. Sometimes it's like making love while having a tooth pulled. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Poe Novel quotes by Jane Austen
#37. I ... am always half afraid of finding a clever novel too clever
& of finding my own story & my own people all forestalled. #Quote by Jane Austen
Poe Novel quotes by Roberto Bolano
#38. The person who really writes the minor work is a secret writer who accepts only the dictates of a masterpiece.
Our good craftsman writes. He's absorbed in what takes shape well or badly on the page. His wife, though he doesn't know it, is watching him. It really is he who's writing. But if his wife had X-ray vision she would see that instead of being present at an exercise of literary creation, she's witnessing a session of hypnosis. There's nothing inside the man who sits there writing. Nothing of himself, I mean. How much better off the poor man would be if he devoted himself to reading. Reading is pleasure and happiness to be alive or sadness to be alive and above all it's knowledge and questions. Writing, meanwhile, is almost always empty. There's nothing in the guts of the man who sits there writing. Nothing, I mean to say, that his wife, at a given moment, might recognize. He writes like someone taking dictation. His novel or book of poems, decent, adequate, arises not from an exercise of style or will, as the poor unfortunate believes, but as the result of an exercise of concealment. There must be many books, many lovely pines, to shield from hungry eyes the book that really matters, the wretched cave of our misfortune, the magic flower of winter!
Excuse the metaphors. Sometimes, in my excitement, I wax romantic. But listen. Every work that isn't a masterpiece is, in a sense, a part of a vast camouflage. You've been a soldier, I imagine, and you know what I m #Quote by Roberto Bolano
