Stephen King's books


Christmas is such a carefree, low-pressure time - that's one of the things I love about it.

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

The trust of the innocent is the liar`s most useful tool.

A short story is like a kiss in the dark from a stranger.

You can`t deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants.

The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless when they are in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out.

You can, you should, and if you`re brave enough to start, you will.

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

Good books don`t give up all their secrets at once.

Love has teeth; they bite; the wounds never close.

When you're still too young to shave, optimism is a perfectly legitimate response to failure.

When you can see people doing something and they don`t see you, even the most trivial actions seem important.

When your pleasures become risks, it`s time to cut them out.

When you got big enough to be noticed, you got big enough to come gunning for.

When you were inside the changes, they were harder to see. You had to step back to see them.
