Writer That Predicted quotes by Gail Anderson-Dargatz
#1. A Complicated Kindness is just that: funny and strange, spellbinding and heartbreaking, this novel is a complicated kindness from a terrifically talented writer. #Quote by Gail Anderson-Dargatz
Writer That Predicted quotes by Kierkegaard
#2. An existing individual is constantly in process of becoming,... and translates all his thinking into terms of process. It is with (him)... as it is with a writer and his style; for he only has a style who never has anything finished, but 'moves the waters of the language' every time he begins, so that the most common expression comes into being for him with the freshness of a new birth. #Quote by Kierkegaard
Writer That Predicted quotes by Jonathan Swift
#3. Would a writer know how to behave himself with relation td posterity? Let him consider in old books what he finds that he is glad to know, and what omissions he most laments. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Writer That Predicted quotes by Isaac Asimov
#4. Plate glass ... has no beauty of its own. Ideally, you ought not to be able to see it at all, but through it you can see all that is happening outside. That is the equivalent of writing that is plain and unadorned. Ideally, in reading such writing, you are not even aware that you are reading. Ideas and events seem merely to flow from the mind of the writer into that of the reader without any barrier between. I hope that is what is happening when you read this book #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Writer That Predicted quotes by Augustus William Hare
#5. The ablest writer is only a gardener first, and then a cook: his tasks are, carefully to select and cultivate his strongest and most nutritive thoughts; and when they are ripe, to dress them, wholesomely, and yet so that they may have a relish. #Quote by Augustus William Hare
Writer That Predicted quotes by Michael Chabon
#6. Horror grows impatient, rhetorically, with the Stoic fatalism of Ecclesiastes. That we are all going to die, that death mocks and cancels every one of our acts and attainments and every moment of our life histories, this knowledge is to storytelling what rust is to oxidation; the writer of horror holds with those who favor fire. The horror writer is not content to report on death as the universal system of human weather; he or she chases tornadoes. Horror is Stoicism with a taste for spectacle. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Writer That Predicted quotes by Theodora Goss
#7. Read a lot. But read as a writer, to see how other writers are doing it. And make your knowledge of literature in English as deep and broad as you can. In workshops, writers are often told to read what is being written now, but if that is all you read, you are limiting yourself. You need to get a good overall sense of English literary history, so you can write out of that knowledge. #Quote by Theodora Goss
Writer That Predicted quotes by Leon Uris
#8. Talent isn't enough. You need motivation-and persistence, too: what Steinbeck called a blend of faith and arrogance. When you're young, plain old poverty can be enough, along with an insatiable hunger for recognition. You have to have that feeling of "I'll show them." If you don't have it, don't become a writer #Quote by Leon Uris
Writer That Predicted quotes by Andy Weir
#9. You want an audience. If you didn't, you wouldn't be a writer. The biggest motivation to write is the knowledge that someone will read it. #Quote by Andy Weir
Writer That Predicted quotes by John Erskine
#10. It is fatal to suppose the great writer was too wise or too profound for us ever to understand him; to think of art so is not to praise but to murder it, for the next step after that tribute will be neglect of the masterpiece. #Quote by John Erskine
Writer That Predicted quotes by Susan Sontag
#11. This philistinism of interpretation is more rife in literature than in any other art. For decades now, literary critics have understood it to be their task to translate the elements of the poem or play or novel or story into something else. Sometimes a writer will be so uneasy before the naked power of his art that he will install within the work itself - albeit with a little shyness, a touch of the good taste of irony - the clear and explicit interpretation of it. Thomas Mann is an example of such an overcooperative author. In the case of more stubborn authors, the critic is only too happy to perform the job. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Writer That Predicted quotes by Eric Schlosser
#12. I find that one of the most important things, as a writer, is to just show up - to just stay in the chair and fight through the difficult patches. As long as you're at the desk, and you're willing to fight it out, eventually the right words will come. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
Writer That Predicted quotes by Deborah Smith
#13. Khairani Barokka is a writer, spoken-word poet, visual artist and performer whose work has a strong vein of activism, particularly around disability, but also how this intersects with, for example, issues of gender - she's campaigned for reproductive rights in her native Indonesian, and is currently studying for a PhD in disability and visual cultures at Goldsmiths. She's written a feminist, environmentalist, anti-colonialist narrative poem, with tactile artwork and a Braille translation. How could I not publish that? #Quote by Deborah Smith
Writer That Predicted quotes by Caitlin R. Kiernan
#14. I could never stand to be a writer. Not a real writer. It's entirely too awful, having thoughts that refuse to become sentences. #Quote by Caitlin R. Kiernan
Writer That Predicted quotes by Robert Reed
#15. I'm the only member of SFWA in Nebraska, but I don't pine away for the companionship of other science fiction writers. I [go] to very few conventions. I'm quite willing to be that eccentric who has a very odd job, quite happy to be the only science fiction writer in town. #Quote by Robert Reed
Writer That Predicted quotes by E.B. White
#16. Sometimes a writer, like an acrobat, must try a trick that is too much for him. #Quote by E.B. White
Writer That Predicted quotes by Isadora Duncan
#17. The first essential in writing about anything is that the writer should have no experience of the matter. #Quote by Isadora Duncan
Writer That Predicted quotes by Amber Benson
#18. The acting is something that will always be a part of my life, but the writing gives me a lot more creative freedom. You're a pawn in somebody else's chess game, whereas as a writer and as a director, you get to call the shots. And that's very thrilling. #Quote by Amber Benson
Writer That Predicted quotes by David Foster Wallace
#19. What seems most important is that Dostoevsky's near-death experience changed a typically vain and trendy young writer-a very talented writer, true, but still one whose basic concerns were for his own literary glory-into a person who believed deeply in moral/spiritual values ... more, into someone who believed that a life lived without moral/spiritual values was not just incomplete but depraved. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Writer That Predicted quotes by Condoleezza Rice
#20. I don't think anybody could have predicted that they would try to use an airplane as a missile, a hijacked airplane as a missile. #Quote by Condoleezza Rice
Writer That Predicted quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#21. Feminism, as writer Marie Sheer remarked in 1986, "is the radical notion that women are people," a notion not universally accepted but spreading nonetheless. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Writer That Predicted quotes by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
#22. To write history is as important as to make history. It is an unchanging truth that if the writer does not remain true to the maker, then it takes on a quality that will confuse humanity. #Quote by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
Writer That Predicted quotes by George Boole
#23. A distinguished writer [Siméon Denis Poisson] has thus stated the fundamental definitions of the science:

'The probability of an event is the reason we have to believe that it has taken place, or that it will take place.'
'The measure of the probability of an event is the ratio of the number of cases favourable to that event, to the total number of cases favourable or contrary, and all equally possible' (equally like to happen).

From these definitions it follows that the word probability, in its mathematical acceptation, has reference to the state of our knowledge of the circumstances under which an event may happen or fail. With the degree of information which we possess concerning the circumstances of an event, the reason we have to think that it will occur, or, to use a single term, our expectation of it, will vary. Probability is expectation founded upon partial knowledge. A perfect acquaintance with all the circumstances affecting the occurrence of an event would change expectation into certainty, and leave neither room nor demand for a theory of probabilities. #Quote by George Boole
Writer That Predicted quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#24. I wasn't that good you know. What I was was a guy who could write a little, publishing in magazines surrounded by people who couldn't write at all. So I looked pretty good. But I never thought I was that good at all. All that I thought was that I tried to tell the truth. #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Writer That Predicted quotes by Virginia Hamilton
#25. For the writer, there is nothing quite like having someone say that he or she understands, that you have reached them and affected them with what you have written. #Quote by Virginia Hamilton
Writer That Predicted quotes by Wallace Stegner
#26. The flimsy little protestations that mark the front gate of every novel, the solemn statements that any resemblance to real persons living or dead is entirely coincidental, are fraudulent every time. A writer has no other material to make his people from than the people of his experience ... The only thing the writer can do is to recombine parts, suppress some characterisitics and emphasize others, put two or three people into one fictional character, and pray the real-life prototypes won't sue. #Quote by Wallace Stegner
Writer That Predicted quotes by Art Garfunkel
#27. Paul's the writer. Yeah, I wrote a little of that stuff, but that's just technically true. In spirit, and in essence of the truth, it doesn't matter. So I don't know, maybe I'm being foolish for not being technical. Yeah, I wrote a certain portion of the things. #Quote by Art Garfunkel
Writer That Predicted quotes by E.B. White
#28. Wilbur never forgot Charlotte. Although he loved her children and grandchildren dearly, none of the new spiders ever quite took her place in his heart. She was in a class by herself. It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both. #Quote by E.B. White
Writer That Predicted quotes by Christopher Milne
#29. It is true that a writer writes first to please himself and that his own satisfaction with what he has done is perhaps his greatest satisfaction. But writing is a means of communication. It is not enough to speak; you must also be heard. The message must be received and understood. #Quote by Christopher Milne
Writer That Predicted quotes by Plutarch
#30. Anaxagoras is said to have predicted that if the heavenly bodies should be loosened by some slip or shake, one of them might be torn away, and might plunge and fall down to earth; and he said that none of the stars was in its original position; for being of stone, and heavy, their shining light is caused by friction with the revolving aether, and they are forced along in fixed orbits by the whirling impulse which gave them their circular motion, and this was what prevented them from falling to our earth in the first place, when cold and heavy bodies were separated from universal matter. #Quote by Plutarch
Writer That Predicted quotes by Jim Piddock
#31. More and more, I play myself, as I get older. Even as a writer, I never got typecast. I've always bounced from project to project, or initiated my own things. I was never known as the guy who wrote romantic comedies or sci-fi, or whatever, but that's fun to me. The first two films I ever had made, as a writer, were both thrillers, which was great. There was nothing funny about either of them, or not intentionally. I actually love that. #Quote by Jim Piddock
Writer That Predicted quotes by Margaret Atwood
#32. It's a critical fallacy of our times ... that a writer should 'grow,' 'change,' or 'develop.' This fallacy causes us to expect from children or radishes: 'grow,' or there's something wrong with you. But writers are not radishes. If you look at what most writers actually do, it resembles a theme with variations more than it does the popular notion of growth. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Writer That Predicted quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#33. I know well enough that very few people who are supposedly interested in writing are interested in writing well. They are interested in publishing something, and if possible in making a "killing." They are interested in being a writer not in writing ... If this is what you are interested in, I am not going to be much use to you. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
