    "We didn't think much in the air corps of a fellow who wangled a cushy job out of his C.O. by buttering him up. It was hard for me to believe that God thought much of a man who tried to wangle salvation by fulsome flattery. I should have thought the worship most pleasing to him was to do your best according to your lights."

    Quotes by Stephen King

    • The road to hell is paved with adverbs.
    • You can't deny laughter. When it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants.
    • Any word you have to hunt for in a thesaurus is the wrong word. There are no exceptions to this rule.
      "Everything You Need to Know About Writing Successfully - in Ten Minutes", 1988
    • You can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants.
      "Hearts in Atlantis"
    • If you don't have the time to read, you don't have the time or the tools to write.
      On Writing, p. 147
    • You can approach the act of writing with nervousness, excitement, hopefulness, or even despair -- the sense that you can never completely put on the page what's in your mind and heart. You can come to the act with your fists clenched and your eyes narrowed, ready to kick ass and take down names. You can come to it because you want a girl to marry you or because you want to change the world. Come to it any way but lightly. Let me say it again: you must not come lightly to the blank page.
      On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, 2000
