Sample Quotes on Writing:

There are head books, heart books, and pocket books. One you write just for the money. One you write because it’s something you’ve always wanted to write—it’s important to your soul to write. And one you write because it’s interesting—it’s something you simply want to explore.

—Jane Yolen

Even if I knew for certain that I would never have anything published again, and would never make another cent from it, I would still keep on writing.

An artist carries on throughout his life a mysterious, uninterrupted conversation with his public.

—Maurice Chevalier

We must tell our readers true things and give them weapons and give them armor and pass on whatever wisdom we have gleaned from our short stay on this green world, we have an obligation not to preach, not to lecture, not to force predigested morals and messages down our readers’ throats like adult birds feeding their babies pre-masticated maggots; and we have an obligation never, ever, under any circumstances, to write anything for children that we would not want to read ourselves. We have an obligation to understand and to acknowledge that as writers for children we are doing important work, because if we mess it up and write dull books that turn children away from reading and from books, we’ve lessened our own future and diminished theirs.

—Neil Gaiman

Ending a novel is almost like putting a child to sleep—it can’t be done abruptly.

—Colm Toibin

Commas in the New Yorker fall with the precision of knives in a circus act,

outlining the victim.

—E. B. White

I had learned already never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it. 

—Ernest Hemingway

Writers, by their very nature,  live a thousand lives and die a thousand times.  They experience loss each time a character dies.  They revel in exquisite pain and fear the writer's block that comes with finding happiness.  In all my time,  I’ve never met an author who didn’t have a tortured soul or a personal demon. 

—Larry Ray Palmer


when inspiration runs dry, 

I drink classical music 

until my words spill out. 

—Kamand Kojouri

Books, the children of the brain.

—Jonathan Swift
