Write quotes by Will Advise
#1. A poem to Raymond, whom everybody loves, originally composed on a waterproof smartphone in a sea of love, which was hidden under the pile of garbage that my bum-pals that have no pen names, or pen-pals, or names, for that matter, brought to me as an offering on the 1st of April 1877, exactly 111 years and 7 months before I was brought forth to this world, because some anonymous prophet told them this would bring luck, joy, happiness, food, and, of course – shelter from evil (he was lying):

If it's fantasy you seek,
to E. Feist then, you must speak.
All he writes is all there is,
for his words, they move the seas.
.
I would write, but I know naught.
In my heart there is a draught.
Hidden desert - golden sands.
Few my love can ever stand.

And so far I've talked to many,
a reply - will there be any?
I know - not, yet I know naught,
all to question, I was taught...

So I learn, I borrow wisdom,
from the great, the ones with vision.
They can teach, the few that grasp,
concepts from a long forgotten past. #Quote by Will Advise
Write quotes by Roland Smith
#2. A good writer should draw the reader in by starting in the middle of the story with a hook, then go back and fill in what happened before the hook. Once you have the reader hooked, you can write whatever you want as you slowly reel them in. #Quote by Roland Smith
Write quotes by Ayn Rand
#3. I write - and read - for the sake of the story ... My basic test for any story is: 'Would I want to meet these characters and observe these events in real life? Is this story an experience worth living through for its own sake? Is the pleasure of contemplating these characters an end itself? #Quote by Ayn Rand
Write quotes by Charles Saatchi
#4. I can't write. I can handle bits of simple-minded advert copy or a poster slogan, so answering questions is about all I'm good for. #Quote by Charles Saatchi
Write quotes by Chris Stapleton
#5. If I'm feeling like rock, we'll do some of that, and if I'm feeling some other way, we might do some of that. So, that's typically how I record and write and play music and anything else. #Quote by Chris Stapleton
Write quotes by Deborah Levy
#6. It's hard to write and be open and let things in when life is tough, but to keep everything out means there's nothing to work with. #Quote by Deborah Levy
Write quotes by Natasha Trethewey
#7. The first thing I tried to do in the months after losing my mother was to write a poem. I found myself turning to poetry in the way so many people do - to make sense of losses. And I wrote pretty bad poems about it. But it did feel that the poem was the only place that could hold this grief. #Quote by Natasha Trethewey
Write quotes by Jane Green
#8. I have a gorgeous office at home but tend not to write there because there are so many distractions. #Quote by Jane Green
Write quotes by Phil Collins
#9. Before you write - remember that every speech has something of 'you' in the writing. Don't take that away when you write. Be yourself. Be comfortable in your own skin. #Quote by Phil Collins
Write quotes by Cliff Sloan
#10. I'm a very early riser, and so I like to get up and try hard to write before the day even really gets started. Just me and a pot of coffee - I find I can get a lot done that way. #Quote by Cliff Sloan
Write quotes by Hugh Prather
#11. If the desire to write is not accompanied by actual writing, then the desire is not to write #Quote by Hugh Prather
Write quotes by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
#12. With the strong women I write about, I want to create a sense of strong possibilities. #Quote by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Write quotes by Taylor Jenkins Reid
#13. I miss him all the time. But it's moments like this, when I'm on the precipice of finally doing work that might just expand my heart, that I wish I could at least send him a letter, telling him what I'm doing. And I wish that he could send me one back. I already know what he would write. Something like "I'm proud of you. I love you." But still, I'd like to get one anyway. #Quote by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Write quotes by Naomi Shihab Nye
#14. Valentine for Ernest Mann"

You can't order a poem like you order a taco.
Walk up to the counter, say, "I'll take two"
and expect it to be handed back to you
on a shiny plate.

Still, I like your spirit.
Anyone who says, "Here's my address,
write me a poem," deserves something in reply.
So I'll tell a secret instead:
poems hide. In the bottoms of our shoes,
they are sleeping. They are the shadows
drifting across our ceilings the moment
before we wake up. What we have to do
is live in a way that lets us find them.

Once I knew a man who gave his wife
two skunks for a valentine.
He couldn't understand why she was crying.
"I thought they had such beautiful eyes."
And he was serious. He was a serious man
who lived in a serious way. Nothing was ugly
just because the world said so. He really
liked those skunks. So, he re-invented them
as valentines and they became beautiful.
At least, to him. And the poems that had been hiding
in the eyes of skunks for centuries
crawled out and curled up at his feet.

Maybe if we re-invent whatever our lives give us
we find poems. Check your garage, the off sock
in your drawer, the person you almost like, but not quite. #Quote by Naomi Shihab Nye
Write quotes by William Least Heat-Moon
#15. It's difficult to write a book where a character is on virtually every page of the book but you cannot refer to his or her gender. It gets rid of every his, her, she and he. #Quote by William Least Heat-Moon
Write quotes by Richard Wyndbourne
#16. Want to write? Read. Want to write well? Read 3000 pages, and write 1000. At the end, you will be fluent in a style, or know you never can be. #Quote by Richard Wyndbourne
Write quotes by Chris Lilley
#17. When I was in school, I was always writing scripts and dressing up as characters. I'd constantly be that guy who'd get up on stage. I used to write imaginary TV shows, like soap operas, for fun. #Quote by Chris Lilley
Write quotes by Walter Mosley
#18. One of the things that I love about being a writer is this. I wake up every day and I write for three hours. I wake up early. So like 6:00, 7:00 in the morning, I write till 9:00 or 10:00. I live in New York, nobody even is breathing until 9:00 or 10:00 in the morning. So, it's like my writing life is completely removed from the rest of my life. #Quote by Walter Mosley
Write quotes by Susan Ford
#19. I'm not sure I ever would write a memoir. #Quote by Susan Ford
Write quotes by Shelby Lynne
#20. I don't have a problem baring my emotions in music. That's one of the reasons I'm glad to have music in my life. I'm pretty resilient as far as being a human being. A lot of songs write themselves. #Quote by Shelby Lynne
Write quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#21. I struggle with confidence, every time. I'm never completely sure I can write another book. Maybe my scope is too grand, my questions too hard, surely readers won't want to follow me here. A novel is like a cathedral, it knocks you down to size when you enter into it. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Write quotes by Anne Sexton
#22. Craft is a trick you make up to let you write the poem. #Quote by Anne Sexton
Write quotes by Mark Rubinstein
#23. Don't write for the market or for others. Write what you know, love and above all, write what you would love to read. #Quote by Mark Rubinstein
Write quotes by Sue Grafton
#24. I caution writers all the time to slow down and pay more attention to the work in front of them than to the end result. I don't think you write one book and get anywhere. I think you write five books and then maybe you are finally on the right path. #Quote by Sue Grafton
Write quotes by Anton Chekhov
#25. I confess I seldom commune with my conscience when I write. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Write quotes by Scott M. Gimple
#26. I actually come from comics, and I'm big on comics. I was reading 'Walking Dead' from the beginning. Then just being on the show, I was really lucky to work on episodes like 'Pretty Much Dead Already' and 'Clear.' I worked a lot on episodes that I didn't write. #Quote by Scott M. Gimple
Write quotes by Fay Weldon
#27. Confidence is something one acquires. It can come early or late but it is impossible to write without it. Mine came late. #Quote by Fay Weldon
Write quotes by James Franco
#28. When I started writing after my career as an actor, I knew that that other life in the film industry would be pulled into my writing life and that people would see me not as an author but as an actor starting to write. #Quote by James Franco
Write quotes by Virginia Woolf
#29. He would give every penny he has (such is the malignity of the germ) to write one little book and become famous; yet all the gold in Peru will not buy him the treasure of a well-turned line. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Write quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#30. This diary will tell the real life story of my great-grandmother Yasutani Jiko. She was a nun and a novelist and New Woman7 of the Taisho era.8 She was also an anarchist and a feminist who had plenty of lovers, both males and females, but she was never kinky or nasty. And even though I may end up mentioning some of her love affairs, everything I write will be historically true and empowering to women, and not a lot of foolish geisha crap. So if kinky nasty things are your pleasure, please close this book and give it to your wife or co-worker and save yourself a lot of time and trouble. 4. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki
Write quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#31. I did not intend to write a funny book, at first. I did not know I was a humorist. I have never been sure about it. In the middle ages, I should probably have gone about preaching and got myself burnt or hanged. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Write quotes by Gao Xingjian
#32. I want to write a novel so profound that it would suffocate a fly. #Quote by Gao Xingjian
Write quotes by Munia Khan
#33. Everyone writes with hand, but very few can write with heart #Quote by Munia Khan
Write quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#34. I write four books a year. I'm very fortunate that I write quickly; around 3,500 words a day. Being strict about delineating my writing time and personal life, as well as keeping distractions at bay, is the only way I can accomplish this. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Write quotes by Charles Mingus
#35. What do you think happens to a composer who is sincere and loves to write and has to wait thirty years to have someone play a piece of his music? #Quote by Charles Mingus
Write quotes by Adam Rich
#36. A lot of big labels will just sign bands like a write off. #Quote by Adam Rich
Write quotes by Ethan Canin
#37. If you write a page a day in couple months you have a good chunk of the book and then after a year you have almost a book. It's not that ... hard. #Quote by Ethan Canin
Write quotes by Elmore Leonard
#38. I used to be able to write five pages a day, every day, no problem. Now a good day is five or four pages, and that's from 9:30 A.M. until 6 P.M. #Quote by Elmore Leonard
Write quotes by Ann Landers
#39. Women's magazines continue to print 'helpful' articles on How to Hang on to Your Husband while thousands of wives write to me and complain that 'hanging is too good for 'em. #Quote by Ann Landers
Write quotes by Esperanza Spalding
#40. I write at the piano, so I write things that fit comfortably under my hands, and I'm not thinking in terms of any specific compositional methods. I'm just seeking sounds. #Quote by Esperanza Spalding
Write quotes by Andrea Arnold
#41. I never write with an actor in mind - never. #Quote by Andrea Arnold
Write quotes by Tina Ferraro
#42. Kate DelVecchio's Six-Point Plan A Hexagon for Hooking Hotties Above are 6 numbered points. Write the names of the potential couple on the center line. Read the questions. For every YES answer, darken the corresponding numbered point with a colored marker. 1: Are both parties unattached and available? 2: Do they have similar interests? 3: Are they on speaking terms? 4: Will they look good together? 5: Do they have a meeting ground outside of school (i.e., work, youth group, mutual friends' homes)? 6: Will their personalities click? Once you have finished answering the questions and coloring the dots, connect all adjacent colored points with lines. When you are finished, examine your diagram. Is it a perfect hexagon for a perfect couple? Flopping #Quote by Tina Ferraro
Write quotes by Samuel Johnson
#43. The greatest part of a writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Write quotes by Jack Ketchum
#44. Thinking about writing isn't writing. Planning to write isn't writing. Neither is talking about it, posting about it, or complaining how hard it is. These may be part of the process. But only writing is writing. #Quote by Jack Ketchum
Write quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#45. Life is a great Book. We are writing the history of our time. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Write quotes by Hedi Slimane
#46. My parents offered me my first camera for my birthday and I developed an exclusive passion for it over the years. Since I was not the most social kid on the block, the camera helped me to express myself, invent my own language - something like a secret garden. I decided early on I would not write in a diary but take silent photographs instead. #Quote by Hedi Slimane
Write quotes by Criswell Freeman
#47. The things that we mortals see as setbacks are, in truth,
simply God's way of redirecting our paths toward Him.
And what sometimes seems to be a terrible setback (to us)
can always be transformed into a great victory (for Him).
After all, no problem is too big for God.
Criswell Freeman (the man who helped me write this book) #Quote by Criswell Freeman
Write quotes by L.L. Barkat
#48. One Bagatelle, and I'll raise you a novel," Megan had tweeted back.
"Writing for tea? Now that would have been a solution for the British empire," Laura returned.
"Writing for me," Megan had typed.
"I'll write you a tea fortune."
"No deal. I want a novel. September sounds good. #Quote by L.L. Barkat
Write quotes by Joshua Bell
#49. I hate YouTube sometimes because people put up things of mine that were never meant for consumption and also because of some of the comments people write about my videos. #Quote by Joshua Bell
Write quotes by Michael Nyman
#50. There's always a question of duration, there's a question of who the orchestra is. No one is free to write what you want - you collaborate on a film score, and one of the good things is that someone else's work is motivating you. #Quote by Michael Nyman
Write quotes by Janet Evanovich
#51. Since I write in first person and have no idea what goes on in men's heads. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Write quotes by Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey Of Fallodon
#52. Two temptations that impair the value of their work inevitably beset public men who write memoirs. One is a tendency to reconstruct the past to suit the present views and feelings of the writer; the other is a natual desire to set his own part in affairs in a pleasing light. #Quote by Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey Of Fallodon
Write quotes by Alexander Pope
#53. But those who cannot write, and those who can, All rhyme, and scrawl, and scribble, to a man. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Write quotes by Anne-Marie Duff
#54. I was quite shy. I used to write stories all the time, and I think that was a worry for my parents. #Quote by Anne-Marie Duff
Write quotes by Dorothy Parker
#55. Genius can write on the back of old envelopes but mere talent requires the finest stationery available. #Quote by Dorothy Parker
Write quotes by T.H. White
#56. Lancelot and Guenever were sitting at the solar window. An observer of the present day, who knew the Arthurian legend only from Tennyson and people of that sort, would have been startled to see that the famous lovers were past their prime. We, who have learned to base our interpretation of love on the conventional boy-and-girl romance of Romeo and Juliet, would be amazed if we could step back into the Middle Ages - when the poet of chivalry could write about Man that he had 'en ciel un dieu, par terre une deesse'. Lovers were not recruited then among the juveniles and adolescents: they were seasoned people, who knew what they were about. In those days people loved each other for their lives, without the conveniences of the divorce court and the psychiatrist. They had a God in heaven and a goddess on earth - and, since people who devote themselves to godesses must exercise some caution about the ones to whom they are devoted, they neither chose them by the passing standards of the flesh alone, nor abandoned it lightly when the bruckle thing began to fail. #Quote by T.H. White
Write quotes by Lajos Egri
#57. No two dramatists think or write alike. Ten thousand playwrights can take the same premise, as they have done since Shakespeare, and not one play will resemble the other except in the premise. Your knowledge, your understanding of human nature, and your imagination will take care of that. #Quote by Lajos Egri
Write quotes by Philip Kerr
#58. I really wanted to write the way Kubrick makes films - 'Strangelove,' '2001', 'Clockwork Orange', 'Barry Lyndon' - they're all so different. #Quote by Philip Kerr
Write quotes by Ann Nocenti
#59. Green Arrow was a very complicated character to take on because he has archaic weaponry. Catwoman, I think is more of a simple archetype to grasp, so it will be about nuance. But I think you need three or four issues before you say, 'Ah ha! Now I really know how to write this character!' You're carrying them around with you. #Quote by Ann Nocenti
Write quotes by Jackie Collins
#60. Where was Paris Hilton a year ago? She's a fabulous character to write about. #Quote by Jackie Collins
Write quotes by William Shunn
#61. Read as widely as possible, and write every day, even if it's as little as three sentences. #Quote by William Shunn
Write quotes by Oscar Hijuelos
#62. When you're writing a novel - at least the way I write is I work from what I would call 'emotional atmosphere,' ambiance to ambiance. #Quote by Oscar Hijuelos
Write quotes by Annie Fellows Johnston
#63. I have to be by myself when I write, and I never know how long it will take. It is like making butter. Sometimes it will come in a few minutes, and sometimes I have to churn away for hours. #Quote by Annie Fellows Johnston
Write quotes by Joanna Russ
#64. That not all men are piggy, only some; that not all men belittle me, only some; that not all men get mad if you won't let them play Chivalry, only some; that not all men write books in which women are idiots, only most; that not all men pull rank on me, only some; that not all men pinch their secretaries' asses, only some; that not all men make obscene remarks to me in the street, only some; that not all men make more money than I do, only some; that not all men make more money than all women, only most; that not all men are rapists, only some; that not all men are promiscuous killers, only some; that not all men control Congress, the Presidency, the police, the army, industry, agriculture, law, science, medicine, architecture, and local government, only some.
I sat down on the lawn and wept. #Quote by Joanna Russ
Write quotes by Tom Stoppard
#65. I write fiction because it's a way of making statements I can disown. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Write quotes by Camilla Lackberg
#66. And it is always the victors who write the historical narrative. #Quote by Camilla Lackberg
Write quotes by Thighpaulsandra
#67. I write all the time, I've got a big, thick, old ledger book that I write stuff down in. I used to watch TV and write things that people would say and now I tend to get it more out of books and from conversations with people I meet. #Quote by Thighpaulsandra
Write quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#68. When you write a novel, you never have to be in the service of the reader. My only concern with my books is that the world that's created be as logical and whole as possible. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Write quotes by Langhorne Slim
#69. Some people don't like my songs because they think they're too simple or easy or not that thought-out. I feel like the way I write is pretty simple, in some ways, because I'm trying to connect. I want a lot of people to hear it, and be moved in some way. #Quote by Langhorne Slim
Write quotes by Barry Humphries
#70. I Sellotape whole tins of sardines to my face at night, attach two squeezed lemon rinds to my armadillo-skinned elbows, and put cucumber on my eyes. By the time I'm finished, I look like a fruit salad with added fish. In the morning, the pillow is pretty much a write-off. #Quote by Barry Humphries
Write quotes by Edward Abbey
#71. I would prefer to write about everything; what else is there? But one must be selective. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Write quotes by Michael Chabon
#72. Nothing ever comes out the way I hope it will. That first vision, that initial vision you have of a book, what it's going to be like when it's done, it begins to go wrong the second you start to write. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Write quotes by Patrick Modiano
#73. Because I find writing painful, I try to get it over with as fast as possible. But I write every day, or I lose the thread. #Quote by Patrick Modiano
Write quotes by Matthea Harvey
#74. I don't think that you can say by any stretch of the imagination that all Wisconsin or Brooklyn-based poets write in a particular way. Similar sensibilities can spring up next to each other in the flower bed, or across oceans. #Quote by Matthea Harvey
Write quotes by Sherman Alexie
#75. As a child, I read because books–violent and not, blasphemous and not, terrifying and not–were the most loving and trustworthy things in my life. I read widely, and loved plenty of the classics so, yes, I recognized the domestic terrors faced by Louisa May Alcott's March sisters. But I became the kid chased by werewolves, vampires, and evil clowns in Stephen King's books. I read books about monsters and monstrous things, often written with monstrous language, because they taught me how to battle the real monsters in my life.

And now I write books for teenagers because I vividly remember what it felt like to be a teen facing everyday and epic dangers. I don't write to protect them. It's far too late for that. I write to give them weapons–in the form of words and ideas-that will help them fight their monsters. I write in blood because I remember what it felt like to bleed. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Write quotes by Charles Duhigg
#76. Someone will write a resolution that says, 'I want to exercise more,' or 'I want to lose 15 pounds' - which is great, that's a great goal to have - but every study tells us that if you pose things in abstract, goal-related terms, it's much less likely that you will accomplish it than if you structure it as an actual activity. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Write quotes by Charles Soule
#77. Of all the things I've done, the first 'Strongman' story was one of the easiest things to write. It was almost fully formed from the get-go. It's almost a 'Dark Knight Returns' riff, except you have a battle-worn Mexican wrestler instead of Batman. #Quote by Charles Soule
Write quotes by Jess Walter
#78. That's why people write books and stories, no doubt, to leave some impression behind, to share a sense of the beauty and pain. This #Quote by Jess Walter
Write quotes by Louis L'Amour
#79. If you're going to be a writer, the first essential is just to write. Do not wait for an idea. Start writing something and the ideas will come. You have to turn the faucet on before the water starts to flow. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Write quotes by A.D. Posey
#80. Live spiritually and you'll be fine. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Write quotes by Daniel Handler
#81. A note, who writes a note like that? Who were you to write one to me? it boomed inside me the whole time, an explosion over and over, the joy of what you wrote to me jumpy shrapnel in my bloodstream. I can't have it near me anymore, I'm grenading it back to you, as soon as I unfold it and read it and cry one more time. Because me too, and fuck you. Even now. #Quote by Daniel Handler
Write quotes by Jodi Picoult
#82. I think I have sort of gravitated toward issues that I don't know the answers to, because that's what's more interesting for me to write. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Write quotes by Raymond Carver
#83. In the beginning, when I was trying to write, I couldn't turn off the outside world to the extent that I can now. #Quote by Raymond Carver
Write quotes by Joshua Radin
#84. I write my songs usually while I'm walking around. Or in a car. Or in a bus, a plane, something like that. I jot down lyrics wherever I am. Usually it's on a vomit bag on an airplane or something. I just look for a pen. #Quote by Joshua Radin
Write quotes by Ted Sarandos
#85. Typically on a TV series, the writers on a show are writing for their life almost every episode. When someone sits down to write a Netflix show, they know there's going to be a 13th hour. #Quote by Ted Sarandos
Write quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
#86. I don't really have special rituals, but I don't try to write fiction unless I have a minimum of a few hours. For me, it takes a while to settle into a mode where I'm truly concentrating. #Quote by Curtis Sittenfeld
Write quotes by Fred Armisen
#87. I wish I was one of those people who could write script after script and pages and pages. I can only aspire to do that. #Quote by Fred Armisen
Write quotes by Tim Pratt
#88. It got to the point where most of my time went toward writing novels. I would still occasionally write short stories, but only when I was commissioned by an editor to write for a themed anthology or special issue. #Quote by Tim Pratt
Write quotes by Martin Amis
#89. I think one shouldn't pussyfoot, and just say that you write the stuff that you would like to read. So you write for yourself, no doubt about that. But I do have a sort of romantic idea of someone in their twenties, of a certain bent, and when they pick up a book by me, they think
as I have done on several occasions
'Ah, here is one for me. Here is a writer who I'll have to read all of, because they're speaking directly to me, and they're writing what I want to read.' And sometimes you're doing the signing queue and a reader comes past and you sign the book, and there's a little exchange of the eyes, where you think, 'Ah, that's one of them.' So there is that ideal reader. And it's someone who's discovering literature and homes in on you. I'm aware of such readers. #Quote by Martin Amis
Write quotes by Dorothy Stratten
#90. If someone's going to talk about me, I'd want it to be positively. The way many write, you'd think only bad things were interesting. If we don't think positive, what's the use? It's a lot more fun, you know. #Quote by Dorothy Stratten
Write quotes by Sarah Colliver
#91. Write - because you will explode if you don't, your brain will expand with words like a balloon filling with air ... #Quote by Sarah Colliver
Write quotes by Richard House
#92. When I started writing the third book, 'The Kill,' the intention was just to write a thriller, a crime novel for myself, really, in which there would be no body, no solution - where you would look at an event from different people's perspectives. #Quote by Richard House
Write quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#93. I write pretty fast, probably faster than most people. But I might think about something for six hours, then write it in 20 minutes. So did I write for six hours and 20 minutes, or just 20 minutes? I used to write absolutely every day, except for days when I had to travel or something. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Write quotes by D.A. Botta
#94. To write what you think is to think what you write. Leave those of hollow to their dust. They are but sorry things. #Quote by D.A. Botta
Write quotes by Miriam Toews
#95. We don't choose the books we write; they choose us. #Quote by Miriam Toews
Write quotes by John Felstiner
#96. In this twenty-first century, there's no one like Sharona Muir who can write, in bright accurate language, animals real or imaginary in an updated bestiary that riffs on evolution, extinction, and what it means to be human among other species. We need this view, and you'll be right there with her on every page of Invisible Beasts. #Quote by John Felstiner
Write quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#97. THE SAME THING happened if GRIOT was told that the jailbird was Hispanic. It was somewhat more optimistic about Whites, if they could read and write, and had never been in a mental hospital or been given a Dishonorable Discharge from the Armed Forces. Otherwise, they might as well be Black or Hispanic. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Write quotes by David Sedaris
#98. 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
Write quotes by Ameen Rihani
#99. I state the threefold purpose of my travels in Arabia: to see the country, to write about it and to be of some service to its people and their cause - that is what brought me from beyond the seas, from America. #Quote by Ameen Rihani
Write quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#100. Up in that room I decided that I would write one story about each thing that I knew about. I was trying to do this all the time I was writing, and it was good and severe discipline. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Write quotes by Matt De La Pena
#101. Whenever I teach writing I tell them to never revise as you go. Finish the first draft. This is my writing advice. I can't do that myself. I'm lying to everybody. I write a paragraph, and then I rewrite that paragraph. I want to feel like I'm standing on firm ground before I move on to the next paragraph. Mentally, I have to do that. #Quote by Matt De La Pena
Write quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#102. The last story you should write is the most important story. You should start with a story that is just an amusing, entertaining, fun story to write and learn your writing chops with the least important things before you start applying them to the most important things. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Write quotes by Michel Foucault
#103. The question I would like to pose is not, Why are we repressed? but rather, Why do we say, with so much passion and so much resentment ... that we are repressed? By what spiral did we come to affirm that sex is negated? What led us to show, ostentatiously, that sex is something we hide, to say it is something we silence?
... I do not maintain that prohibition of sex is a ruse; but it is a ruse to make prohibition into the basic and constitutive element from which one would be able to write the history of what has been said concerning sex starting from the modern epoch. #Quote by Michel Foucault

Write quotes by Natalie Goldberg
#115. Writing ... is 90 percent listening. You listen so deeply to the space around you that it fills you, and when you write, it pours out of you ... You don't only listen to the person speaking to you across the table, but simultaneously listen to the air, the chair, and the door. And go beyond the door. Take in the sound of the season, the sound of the color coming in through the windows. Listen to the past, future, and present right where you are. Listen with your whole body, not only with your ears, but with your hands, your face, and the back of your neck. #Quote by Natalie Goldberg

What's your secret to making a story so good? Do you have any writing tricks or rituals?" Conner had never thought about it before. He thought back to the very first time he wrote a story and recalled a tool that had helped him write ever since. "Whenever I write, I imagine everything in Dad's voice," he said. "I try to describe everything with the same energy and enthusiasm he had when he read stories to us. Sometimes when I miss him the most, writing makes me feel like he's there with me. #Quote by Chris Colfer

Write quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#126. One of our Church educators published what he purports to be a history of the Church's stand on the question of organic evolution. His thesis challenges the integrity of a prophet of God. He suggests that Joseph Fielding Smith published his work, Man: His Origin and Destiny, against the counsel of the First Presidency and his own Brethren. This writer's interpretation is not only inaccurate, but it also runs counter to the testimony of Elder Mark E. Petersen, who wrote this foreword to Elder Smith's book, a book I would encourage all to read. Elder Petersen said:

Some of us [members of the Council of the Twelve] urged [Elder Joseph Fielding Smith] to write a book on the creation of the world and the origin of man.... The present volume is the result. It is a most remarkable presentation of material from both sources [science and religion] under discussion. It will fill a great need in the Church and will be particularly invaluable to students who have become confused by the misapplication of information derived from scientific experimentation.


When one understands that the author to whom I alluded is an exponent of the theory of organic evolution, his motive in disparaging President Joseph Fielding Smith becomes apparent. To hold to a private opinion on such matters is one thing, but when one undertakes to publish his views to discredit the work of a prophet, it is a very serious matter.

It is also apparent to all who have the Spirit o #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Write quotes by Hendrik Willem Van Loon
#127. What poor, deluded fools these human beings are! Won't they ever learn? Of course, today they seem to do everything at a much faster rate of speed than we did in our day. They get born faster. They live faster. They eat faster. They burn out faster. But what do they gain? And you tell me that all of them can now read and write! But what do they read and what do they write? And are they any better at living in peace with each other than we were? Do they love each other any the better? Let me put it even more simply. Do they treat each other with any greater decency and tolerance than we did in our own time, when we were forever slaughtering each other for some opinion which was mere guesswork and probably always would remain so, and yet caused one half of humanity to send the other half to the gallows and the stake - and for what?...I am sorry, but even today, I don't quite know for what! #Quote by Hendrik Willem Van Loon
Write quotes by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
#128. It is necessary a writing critic should understand how to write. And though every writer is not bound to show himself in the capacity of critic, every writing critic is bound to show himself capable of being a writer; for if he be apparently impotent in this latter kind, he is to be denied all title or character in the other. #Quote by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury

#135. But if any man undertake to write a history, that has to be collected from materials gathered by observation and the reading of works not easy to be got in all places, nor written always in his own language, but many of them foreign and dispersed in other hands, for him, undoubtedly, it is in the first place and above all things most necessary, to reside in some city of good note, addicted to liberal arts, and populous; where he may have plenty of all sorts of books, and upon inquiry may hear and inform himself of such particulars as, having escaped the pens of writers, are more faithfully preserved in the memories of men, lest his work be deficient in many things, even those which it can least dispense with. #Quote by Plutarch

Write quotes by OMOSOHWOFA CASEY
#145. People love it when you criticise some things which they do not believe in, practices which are contrary to what they practice or contrary views. They call you objective and truthful

But immediately you start disagreeing with their views, criticising their beliefs, expressing contrary views against what they support, they call you foul names, say you are not a child of God, ask who you are to judge.

Listen and listen good, I love writing and I write based on inspiration and experience.

I don't just write, I write to capture the minds of my readers and to spark reaction. I welcome contrary views, I love you opposing my stance cos in the process I learn some things from you.

Don't get mad at me for expressing myself via writing. I love putting things down. Learn to tolerate my views and counter me when you don't agree.

Stop holding grudges and developing unnecessary hatred. Life is too short to be closed minded and inclined. Life is too short for me to idolize anybody.

Well then, we went and had tea with Henry James today…and Henry James fixed me with his staring blank eye - it is like a childs marble - and said 'My dear Virginia, they tell me - they tell me - they tell me - that you - as indeed being your fathers daughter nay your grandfathers grandchild - the descendant I may say of a century - of a century - of quill pens and ink - ink - ink pots, yes, yes, yes, they tell me - ahm m m - that you, that you, that you write in short.' This went on in the public street, while we all waited, as farmers wait for the hen to lay an egg - do they? - nervous, polite, and now on this foot now on that. #Quote by Virginia Woolf

Write quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#157. ...while epic fantasy is based on the fairy tale of the just war, that's not one you'll find in Grimm or Disney, and most will never recognize the shape of it. I think the fantasy genre pitches its tent in the medieval campground for the very reason that we even bother to write stories about things that never happened in the first place: because it says something subtle and true about our own world, something it is difficult to say straight out, with a straight face. Something you need tools to say, you need cheat codes for the human brain--a candy princess or a sugar-coated unicorn to wash down the sour taste of how bad things can really get.

See, I think our culture has a slash running through the middle of it, too. Past/Future, Conservative/Liberal, Online/Offline. Virgin/Whore. And yes: Classical/Medieval. I think we're torn between the Classical Narrative of Self and the Medieval Narrative of Self, between the choice of Achilles and Keep Calm and Carry On.

The Classical internal monologue goes like this: do anything, anything, only don't be forgotten. Yes, this one sacrificed his daughter on a slab at Aulis, that one married his mother and tore out his eyes, and oh that guy ate his kids in a pie. But you remember their names, don't you? So it's all good in the end.

Write quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#165. We may know that the work we continue to put off doing will be bad. Worse, however, is the work we never do. A work that's finished is at least finished. It may be poor, but it exists, like the miserable plant in the lone flowerpot of my neighbour who's crippled. That plant is her happiness, and sometimes it's even mine. What I write, bad as it is, may provide some hurt or sad soul a few moments of distraction from something worse. That's enough for me, or it isn't enough, but it serves some purpose, and so it is with all of life. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Write quotes by Virginia Woolf
#166. But Orlando was a woman - Lord Palmerston had just proved it. And when we are writing the life of a woman, we may, it is agreed, waive our demand for action, and substitute love instead. Love, the poet has said, is woman's whole existence. And if we look for a moment at Orlando writing at her table, we must admit that never was there a woman more fitted for that calling. Surely, since she is a woman, and a beautiful woman, and a woman in the prime of life, she will soon give over this pretence of writing and thinking and begin at least to think of a gamekeeper (and as long as she thinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking). And then she will write him a little note (and as long as she writes little notes nobody objects to a woman writing either) and make an assignation for Sunday dusk and Sunday dusk will come; and the gamekeeper will whistle under the window - all of which is, of course, the very stuff of life and the only possible subject for fiction. Surely Orlando must have done one of these things? Alas, - a thousand times, alas, Orlando did none of them. Must it then be admitted that Orlando was one of those monsters of iniquity who do not love? She was kind to dogs, faithful to friends, generosity itself to a dozen starving poets, had a passion for poetry. But love - as the male novelists define it - and who, after all, speak with greater authority? - has nothing whatever to do with kindness, fidelity, generosity, or poetry. Love is slipping off one' #Quote by Virginia Woolf

Write quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#178. There's a swell book that's out of print now. Maybe Seven Stories will bring it out again. It's called The Writer and Psychoanalysis by a man who's now dead named Edmund Bergler. He claimed he had treated more writers than anyone else in his field, and being that he practiced in New York, he probably did. Bergler said that writers were fortunate in that they were able to treat their neuroses every day by writing. He also said that as soon as a writer was blocked, this was catastrophic because the writer would start to go to pieces. And so I said in a piece in Harper's, or a letter I wrote to Harper's, about "the death of the novel": People will continue to write novels, or maybe short stories, because they discover that they are treating their own neuroses. And I have said about the practice of the arts that practicing any art - be it painting, music, dance, literature, or whatever - is not a way to make money or become famous. It's a way to make your soul grow. So you should do it anyway. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Often when he was teaching me to write in Greek the Fox would say, "Child, to say the very thing you really mean, the whole of it, nothing more or less or other than what you really mean; that's the whole art and joy of words." A glib saying. When the time comes to you at which you will be forced at last to utter the speech which has lain at the centre of your soul for years, which you have, all that time, idiot-like, been saying over and over, you'll not talk about joy of words. #Quote by C.S.

Sometimes I look a the Moon, and I imagine that those darker spots are caverns, cities, islands, and the places that shine are those where the sea catches the light of the sun like the glass of a mirror ... I would like to tell of war and friendship among the various parts of the body, the arms that do battle with the feet, and the veins that make love with the arteries or the bones with the marrow. All the stories I would like to write persecute me when I am in my chamber, it seems as if they are all around me, the little devils, and while one tugs at my ear, another tweaks my nose, and each says to me, 'Sir, write me, I am beautiful'. #Quote by Umberto Eco
