Writing is thinking on paper.
You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
How do I know what I think until I see what I say?
E. M. Forster
The reason one writes isn’t the fact he wants to say something. He writes because he has something to say.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
The author must keep his mouth shut when his work starts to speak.
The work never matches the dream of perfection the artist has to start with.
A blank piece of paper is God’s way of telling us how hard it to be God.
We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little.
