Writing quotes

You must not come lightly to the blank page.

- Stephen King

A man writes to throw off the poison which he has accumulated because of his false way of life. He is trying to recapture his innocence, yet all he succeeds in doing (by writing) is to inoculate the world with a virus of his disillusionment. No man would set a word down on paper if he had the courage to live out what he believed in.

- Miller, Henry

In certain kinds of writing, particularly in art criticism and literary criticism, it is normal to come across long passages which are almost completely lacking in meaning.

Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say'infinitely'when you mean'very'; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite.

- C. S. Lewis

As far as modern writing is concerned, it is rarely rewarding to translate it, although it might be easy. Translation is very much like copying paintings.

- Pasternak, Boris

The way you define yourself as a writer is that you write every time you have a free minute. If you didn't behave that way you would never do anything.

- John Irving

...Then anyone who leaves behind him a written manual, and likewise anyone who receives it, in the belief that such writing will be clear and certain, must be exceedingly simple-minded...

- Plato

Employ your time in improving yourself by other menís writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for.

- Socrates

I don't think anyone should write their autobiography until after they're dead.

- Samuel Goldwyn

Any historian of the literature of the modern age will take virtually for granted the adversary intention, the actually subversive intention, that characterizes modern writing -- he will perceive its clear purpose of detaching the reader from the habits of thought and feeling that the larger culture imposes, of giving him a ground and a vantage point from which to judge and condemn, and perhaps revise, the culture that produces him.

- Trilling, Lionel

If one wait for the right time to come before writing, the right time never comes.

- James Russell Lowell

The secret of all good writing is sound judgment.

- Horace

Writing a novel without being asked seems a bit like having a baby when you have nowhere to live.

- Ellman, Lucy

That which resembles most living oneís life over again, seems to be to recall all the circumstances of it; and, to render this remembrance more durable, to record them in writing.

- Benjamin Franklin

I feel that we read to learn new things, sure, absolutely, but more often than not, what we really get out of the good books we read is self- recognition. We read and discover stuff about life that we already knew, except that we didn't know we knew it until we read it in a particular book. And this self-recognition, this discovering ourselves in the writings of others can be very exciting, can make us feel a little less isolated inside our own thing and a little more connected to the larger world.

- Richard Price

When writing a novel that's pretty much entirely what life turns into:'House burned down. Car stolen. Cat exploded. Did 1500 easy words, so all in all it was a pretty good day.'

- Neil Gaiman

- Meyer, Paul J.

A talent for drama is not a talent for writing, but is an ability to articulate human relationships.

- Vidal, Gore

Easy writings curse is hard reading.

- Sheridan, Richard Brinsley

I can't concern myself with what's going on with the club or what the media is writing. If you pay attention to those things, that's when you get yourself in trouble.

- Mattingly, Don
