Writing, I think, is not apart from living. Writing is a kind of double living. The writer experiences everything twice. Once in reality and once in the mirror which waits always before or behind.
Catherine Drinker Bowen
I have suffered a great deal from writers who have quoted this or that sentence of mine either out of its context or in juxtaposition to some incongruous matter which quite distorted my meaning , or destroyed it altogether.
Alfred North Whitehead
The state exists for man, not man for the state. The same may be said of science. These are old phrases, coined by people who saw in human individuality the highest human value. I would hesitate to repeat them, were it not for the ever recurring danger that they may be forgotten, especially in these days of organization and stereotypes.
Albert Einstein
I write when I'm inspired, and I see to it that I'm inspired at nine o'clock every morning.
Peter De Vries
Imagine a school with children that can read or write, but with teachers who cannot, and you have a metaphor of the Information Age in which we live.
Peter Cochrane
Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs.
Christopher Hampton
Come to think of it, there are already a million monkeys on a million typewriters, and the Usenet is NOTHING like Shakespeare
Blair Houghton
Every composer knows the anguish and despair occasioned by forgetting ideas which one had no time to write down.
Hector Berlioz
I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean.
Socrates
I am a poet. I lock myself in my room with a type writer so I can talk in terms of the world that has put me here.
Eric Pio
There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.
John Swinton
Real programmers don't comment their code. If it was hard to write, it should be hard to understand.
Anon.
Men will wrangle for religion write for it fight for it die for it anything but--live for it.
Charles Caleb Colton
Write down the advice of him who loves you, though you like it not at present.
English Proverb
Writers should be read, but neither seen nor heard.
Daphne du Maurier
You are not an artist,an artist creates. You do not write your own songs. End of debate.
Eric Pio
