Writing quotes
Writing
This is the sixth book I've written, which isn't bad for a guy who's only read two.

- George Burns
I love being a writer. What I can't stand is the paperwork.

- Peter De Vries
Writing a book of poetry is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo.

- Marquis, Don
The best way to become a successful writer is to read good writing, remember it, and then forget where you remember it from.

- Fowler, Gene
It is by teaching that we teach ourselves, by relating that we observe, by affirming that we examine, by showing that we look, by writing that we think, by pumping that we draw water into the well.

- Henri Frédéric Amiel
There is only one way to defeat the enemy, and that is to write as well as one can. The best argument is an undeniably good book.

- Saul Bellow
Not every story has explosions and car chases. That's why they have nudity and espionage.

- Bill Barnes and Gene Ambaum
All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn. American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since.

- Hemingway, Ernest
Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.

- Mark Twain
I have always taken as the standard of the mode of teaching and writing, not the abstract, particular, professional philosopher, but universal man, that I have regarded man as the criterion of truth, and not this or that founder of a system, and have from the first placed the highest excellence of the philosopher in this, that he abstains, both as a man and as an author, from the ostentation of philosophy, i.e., that he is a philosopher only in reality, not formally, that he is a quiet philosopher, not a loud and still less a brawling one.

- Feuerbach, Ludwig
I am a galley slave to pen and ink.

- Honore de Balzac
If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write things worth reading or do things worth writing.

- Benjamin Franklin
You can approach the act of writing with nervousness, excitement, hopefulness, or even despairûthe sense that you can never completely put on the page whatÆs in your mind and heart. You can come to the act with your fists clenched and your eyes narrowed, ready to kick ass and take down names. You can come to it because you want a girl to marry you or because you want to change the world. Come to it any way but lightly. Let me say it again: you must not come lightly to the blank page.

- Stephen King
Writing fiction has become a priestly business in countries that have lost their faith.

- Vidal, Gore
Writing well is at one and the same time good thinking, good feeling, and good expression; it is having wit, soul, and taste, all together.

- George-Louis Leclerc
When one is grateful for something too good for common thanks, writing is less unsatisfactory than speech-one does not, at least, hear how inadequate the words are.

- George Eliot
It is a sad fact about our culture that a poet can earn much more money writing or talking about his art than he can by practicing it.

- Auden, W. H.
The Enemy, who wears her mother's usual face and confidential tone, has access; doubtless stares into her writing case and listens on the phone.

- Mcginley, Phyllis
Historians desiring to write the actions of men, ought to set down the simple truth, and not say anything for love or hatred; also to choose such an opportunity for writing as it may be lawful to think what they will, and write what they think, which is a rare happiness of the time.

- Raleigh, Sir Walter
’Tis hard to say, if greater want of skill Appear in writing or in judging ill; But, of the two, less dang’rous is th’ offence To tire our patience, than mislead our sense.

- Alexander Pope
