Write - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing - an actor, a writer - I am a person who does things - I write, I act - and I never know what I`m going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun.

Stephen Fry

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.

Benjamin Franklin

When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, `I am going to produce a work of art`. I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.

George Orwell

All too often I write to find out what I think about a subject, not because I already know.

Neil Gaiman

People talk about books that write themselves, and it`s a lie. Books don`t write themselves. It takes thought and research and backache and notes and more time and more work than you`d believe.

Neil Gaiman

It takes a heap of sense to write good nonsense.

Mark Twain

Write with the door closed, rewrite with the door open.

Stephen King

History belongs to those who dare to write it.

Steve Wang

The only way you can write the truth is to assume that what you set down will never be read. Not by any other person, and not even by yourself at some later date. Otherwise you begin excusing yourself. You must see the writing as emerging like a long scroll of ink from the index finger of your right hand; you must see your left hand erasing it.

Margaret Atwood

We should not seek immortality in reproduction. But if you contribute to the world`s culture, if you have a good idea, compose a tune, invent a spark plug, write a poem, it may live on, intact, long after your genes have dissolved in the common pool.

Richard Dawkins

Write them, above all, in your heart; there they can be neither burned nor destroyed, and you will take them wherever you go.

Paulo Coelho

You don't write because someone sets assignments! You write because you need to write, or because you hope someone will listen, or because writing will mend something broken inside you, or bring something back to life.

Joanne Harris

Better to write for yourself and have no public than to write for the public and have no self.

Cyril Vernon Connolly

If you don`t have time to read, you don`t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.

Stephen King

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
