    Quotations about Writing

    • The key to non-anxious sermon-writing is that it's not about me. It's about the congregation. I honor the fact that the listeners bring more to the sermon than I do. I remind myself of the hundreds of times someone says, 'I loved how you said?' and then tell me things that they heard that were nowhere in my text and that I never said. But they heard what they needed to hear.
      Ministrare, 04-07-2006, by Reverend Sean Parker Dennison
    • I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.
    • The best way to become acquainted with a subject is to write a book about it.
    • Writers should be read, but neither seen nor heard.
    • Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.
    • Unprovided with original learning, unformed in the habits of thinking, unskilled in the arts of composition, I resolved to write a book.
    • If any man wish to write in a clear style, let him be first clear in his thoughts; and if any would write in a noble style, let him first possess a noble soul.
    • I don't think anyone should write their autobiography until after they're dead.
    • Please write again soon. Though my own life is filled with activity, letters encourage momentary escape into others lives and I come back to my own with greater contentment.
      'A Woman of Independent Means', by Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey
    • I always wrote with the idea that what I put out there is going to stay there. Once I publish something, it has been published. I've never deleted more than one or two posts from my site. I don't think that there are takebacks. I don't feel right about it.
      Digital Preservation and Blogs, SXSW 2006, by Alison Headley
