Quotations For Today

Hey, can you blame me? I’m on my way back to the dentist…

Elie Wiesel:
Write only if you cannot live without writing. Write only what you alone can write.

Sharon O’Brien:
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.

Sholem Asch:
Writing comes more easily if you have something to say.

Jules Renard:
Writing is an occupation in which you have to keep proving your talent to those who have none.

Stephen Leacock:
Writing is no trouble: you just jot down ideas as they occur to you. The jotting is simplicity itself – it is the occurring which is difficult.

Jack London:
You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.

F. Scott Fitzgerald:
You don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you’ve got something to say.
