Author Quotes

"If you start to revise before you've reached the end,
you're likely to begin dawdling with the
revisions and putting off the
difficult task of writing."

~ Pearl S. Buck

Author Quotes

"Words need to be crafted, not sprayed. They need
to be fitted together with infinite care."

~ Norman Cousins

Author Quotes

"For a long time now I have tried simply to write the best I can.
Sometimes I have good luck and write better than I can."

~ Ernest Hemingway

Author Quotes

"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."

~ Charles Peguy

Author Quotes

"Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are,
what you believe, shine through every sentence you
write, every piece you finish."
~ John Jakes

Author Quotes

"The drudgery of being a professional writer comes in trying
to make good days out of bad days and in squeezing out
the words when they won't just flow."

~ Benjamin Cavell
