Writing quotes
Writing
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting -- a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The ambivalence of writing is such that it can be considered both an act and an interpretive process that follows after an act with which it cannot coincide. As such, it both affirms and denies its own nature.

- Man, Paul De
This is pretty much what journals are all about, at least to me. I knew as I wrote them that even though they provided an excellent place for brain (and heart, and psyche) dump, they were mainly a map of me.

- Colleen Wainwright
It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up, because by that time I was too famous.

- Benchley, Robert
Without words, without writing and without books there would be no history, there could be no concept of humanity.

- Hermann Hesse
Iím not alone when Iím writing the language itself, like a kind of trampoline, is there helping me.

- Sir Edward William Stafford
Would you not like to try all sorts of lives -- one is so very small -- but that is the satisfaction of writing -- one can impersonate so many people.

- Mansfield, Katherine
Most critical writing is drivel and half of it is dishonest. It is a short cut to oblivion, anyway. Thinking in terms of ideas destroys the power to think in terms of emotions and sensations.

- Chandler, Raymond
Literary works cannot be taken over like factories, or literary forms of expression like industrial methods. Realist writing, of which history offers many widely varying examples, is likewise conditioned by the question of how, when and for what class it is made use of.

- Brecht, Bertolt
Clutter is the disease of American writing. We are a society strangling in unnecessary words, circular constructions, pompous frills and meaningless jargon.

- Zinsser, William
One cannot but wonder at this constantly recurring phrase getting something for nothing, as if it were the peculiar and perverse ambition of disturbers of society. Except for our animal outfit, practically all we have is handed us gratis. Can the most complacent reactionary flatter himself that he invented the art of writing or the printing press, or discovered his religious, economic, and moral convictions, or any of the devices which supply him with meat and raiment or any of the sources of such pleasure as he may derive from literature or the fine arts? In short, civilization is little else than getting something for nothing.

- Robinson, James H.
Writing novels preserves you in a state of innocence -- a lot passes you by -- simply because your attention is otherwise diverted.

- Brookner, Anita
You write with ease to show your breeding, But easy writingís vile hard reading.

- Richard Brinsley Sheridan
All writing comes by the grace of God.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
Learn as much by writing as by reading.

- Lord Acton
People do not deserve to have good writings; they are so pleased with the bad.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
When you write things down, they sometimes take you places you hadn't planned.

- Melanie Benjamin
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
Good sense is both the first principal and the parent source of good writing.

- Horace
