    Quotations about Writing

    • The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
    • I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.
    • Vigorous writing is concise.
      "The Elements of Style", 1919, by William Jr. Strunk
    • Write something to suit yourself and many people will like it; write something to suit everybody and scarcely anyone will care for it.
    • How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.
    • This is pretty much what journals are all about, at least to me. I knew as I wrote them that even though they provided an excellent place for brain (and heart, and psyche) dump, they were mainly a map of me.

    • No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else's draft.
    • A classic is classic not because it conforms to certain structural rules, or fits certain definitions (of which its author had quite probably never heard). It is classic because of a certain eternal and irrepressible freshness.
    • I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again.
