In literature, when nine hundred and ninety-nine souls ignore you, but the thousandth buys your work, or at least borrows it — that is called enormous popularity.
So often is the virgin sheet of paper more real than what one has to say, and so often one regrets having marred it.
The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.
You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.
Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.
A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket.
And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.
I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all.
If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.
What I like in a good author is not what he says, but what he whispers.
Logan Pearsall Smith, "All Trivia," Afterthoughts. 1931
The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought, this in turn makes us think more deeply about life, which helps us regain our equilibrium.
It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment?

Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn't wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say.
Never use the word, 'very.' It is the weakest word in the English language; doesn't mean anything. If you feel the urge of 'very' coming on, just write the word, 'damn,' in the place of 'very.' The editor will strike out the word, 'damn,' and you will have a good sentence.
William Allen White (Thanks, Garson O'Toole of quoteinvestigator!)
I'm not a very good writer, but I'm an excellent rewriter.
