Writers

Famous quotes containing the word writers:

    If writers were too wise, perhaps no books would get written at all. It might be better to ask yourself “Why?” afterwards than before. Anyway, the force from somewhere in Space which commands you to write in the first place, gives you no choice. You take up the pen when you are told, and write what is commanded. There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    Even in the midst of love-making, writers are working on the description.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    It is remarkable that almost all speakers and writers feel it to be incumbent on them, sooner or later, to prove or acknowledge the personality of God. Some Earl of Bridgewater, thinking it better late than never, has provided for it in his will. It is a sad mistake.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
