Writer Quotations

There's nothing to writing.  All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein. "

The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say. "

"I try to leave out the parts that people skip."

"I'm not a very good writer, but I'm an excellent rewriter."

"Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart."

I love being a writer.  What I can't stand is the paperwork."

To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it's about, but the inner music the words make."

Writing comes more easily if you have something to say. "

If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad. "

Writers are not just people who sit down and write.  They hazard themselves.  Every time you compose a book your composition of yourself is at stake."

Authors and lovers always suffer some infatuation, from which only absence can set them free."
