"Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus."

Enid Bagnold (via pusateriwrites)

"But I am just a writer that see’s everything in nothing."

"Never piss off a writer, for he will put you in his book, make you a character that readers despise and murder you in a horrible way."

"The style of a writer is a faithful representative of his mind; therefore, if any man would write in a clear style, let him first be clear in his thoughts; and if any man would write in a noble style, let him first possess a noble soul."

Goethe (via writingquotes)

"Every writer has his writing technique - what he can and can’t do to describe something like war or history. I’m not good at writing about those things, but I try because I feel it is necessary to write that kind of thing."

Haruki Murakami (via writingquotes)

"The importance to the writer of first writing must be out of all proportion of the actual value of what is written."

Elizabeth Bowen (via writingquotes)
