Writing is no dying art form in America because most published writers here accept the wisdom and the necessity of encouraging the talent that follows in their footsteps.

Elizabeth George, author

I have always noticed that in portraits of really great writers the mouth is always firmly closed.

Gertrude Stein, author

I tell writers to keep reading, reading, reading. Read widely and deeply. And I tell them not to give up even after getting rejection letters. And only write what you love.

Anita Diament,

A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.

Thomas Mann, writer

Good writers borrow from other writers. Great writers steal from them outright.

Aaron Sorkin, producer

Originality is nothing but judicious imitation. The most original writers borrowed one from another.

Voltaire, writer

Writers are a little below the clowns and a little above the trained seals.

John Steinbeck, author

All writers are vampires.

James Gandolfini, actor

I think ethnic and regional labels are insulting to writers and really put restrictions on them. People don't think your work is quite as universal.

James Welch,

The ability of writers to imagine what is not the self, to familiarize the strange and mystify the familiar, is the test of their power.

Toni Morrison, novelist

The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.

Albert Camus, philosopher

The reason actors, artists, writers have agents is because we'll do it for nothing. That's a basic fact - you gotta do it.

Morgan Freeman, actor

I suppose all writers worry about the well running dry.

Richard Russo, novelist

What a revolting contrast exists in England between the slavery of women and the intellectual superiority of women writers.

Flora Tristan, activist

Some major writers have a huge impact, like Ayn Rand, who to my mind is a lousy fiction writer because her writing has no compassion and virtually no humor. She has a philosophical and economical message that she is passing off as fiction, but it really isn't fiction at all.

Theodore Sturgeon, writer

One reason the human race has such a low opinion of itself is that it gets so much of its wisdom from writers.

Wilfrid Sheed, novelist

As you know from reading many of these Negro writers, we don't deal too much with the discussion of democracy and what it means and how improvisation fits in all that.

Stanley Crouch, critic

Good writers are in the business of leaving signposts saying, Tour my world, see and feel it through my eyes; I am your guide.

Larry King, entertainer

Russia, France, Germany and China. They revere their writers. America is still a frontier country that almost shudders at the idea of creative expression.

James A. Michener, novelist

My breakthrough as a reader was when I discovered the European adventure story writers - Alexander Dumas, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Walter Scott, to name a few.

Terry Brooks, writer

Many attempts have been made by writers on art and poetry to define beauty in the abstract, to express it in the most general terms, to find some universal formula for it.

Walter Pater, critic

I suppose that writers should, in a way, feel flattered by the censorship laws. They show a primitive fear and dread at the fearful magic of print.

John Mortimer, novelist

The really great writers are people like Emily Bronte who sit in a room and write out of their limited experience and unlimited imagination.

James A. Michener, novelist

How some of the writers I come across get through their books without dying of boredom is beyond me.

William Gaddis, novelist

The writers I respect the most had an undying commitment to a vision.

Jewel Kilcher, musician

Good writers are of necessity rare.

George Henry Lewes, philosopher

The English may not always be the best writers in the world, but they are incomparably the best dull writers.

Raymond Chandler, novelist

If something in your writing gives support to people in their lives, that's more than just entertainment-which is what we writers all struggle to do, to touch people.

Dean Koontz, author

Writers and travelers are mesmerized alike by knowing of their destinations.

Eudora Welty, author

Writers will happen in the best of families.

Rita Mae Brown, writer

I think most writers feel like they're on the outside looking in much of the time. All of us feel, to a certain extent, alienated from the stuff going on around us.

Mark Haddon, novelist

Labels only confuse people. The smarter people recognize artists who transcend categories. But I always try to entertain. It's in my nature; writers are born to entertain. If that means working ostensibly within a genre, fine.

John Shirley, author

Writers' bedtimes vary, but few have been spared the shock of a copy editor's early wake-up call.

Bill Walsh, editor

Artists don't talk about art. Artists talk about work. If I have anything to say to young writers, it's stop thinking of writing as art. Think of it as work.

Paddy Chayefsky, dramatist

Writing headlines is a specialty - there are outstanding writers who will tell you they couldn't write a headline to save their lives.

Bill Walsh, editor

In comparing various authors with one another, I have discovered that some of the gravest and latest writers have transcribed, word for word, from former works, without making acknowledgment.

Pliny The Elder, author

Good writers are monotonous, like good composers. They keep trying to perfect the one problem they were born to understand.

Alberto Moravia, novelist

Your first book is the only one that matters. Perhaps a writer should write only that one. That is the one moment when you make the big leap; the opportunity to express yourself is offered that once, and you untie the knot within you then or never again.

Italo Calvino, journalist

Offhand, the only North American writers I can think of who have come from a background of rural poverty and gone on to write about it have been Negroes.

Alden Nowlan, poet

As many political writers have pointed out, commitment to political equality is not an empirical claim that people are clones.

Steven Pinker, scientist

Dreaming in public is an important part of our job description, as science writers, but there are bad dreams as well as good dreams. We're dreamers, you see, but we're also realists, of a sort.

William Gibson, writer

Most comic scriptwriters are very bad. The artists are good, but the writers are so bad.

Harry Harrison, author

Writers are good at plucking out what they need here and there.

Beverly Cleary, author

Writers are the lunatic fringe of publishing.

Judith Rossner, novelist

It's well known that actors are lousy writers.

Richard Grant, author

I think it's a question which particularly arises over women writers: whether it's better to have a happy life or a good supply of tragic plots.

Wendy Cope, poet

Apart from a few simple principles, the sound and rhythm of English prose seem to me matters where both writers and readers should trust not so much to rules as to their ears.

F. L. Lucas, critic

Between us and the writers, it was comedy hour the whole time. We could hardly get through it.

Buddy Rice, celebrity

It is the nobility of their style which will make our writers of 1840 unreadable forty years from now.

Stendhal, writer

As writers and readers, as sinners and citizens, our realism and our aesthetic sense make us wary of crediting the positive note.

Seamus Heaney, poet

Writers are too neurotic to ever be happy.

Connie Willis, writer

I would say the next imminent hot writers are often the writers from the decade before you were born.

Fiona Shaw, actress

Writers would submit scripts to me, and if I liked one well enough to submit to magazine editors, I had the know-how whether the story was good or bad.

Julius Schwartz, editor

Sometimes I listen to songs by very smart writers who assume that the world is a civil place with certain formalities that people follow, but I don't see things that way. My own experience tells me that life is not like that.

Suzanne Vega, musician

I have come to understand and appreciate writers much more recently since I started working on a book last fall. Before that, I thought golf writers got up every morning, played a round of golf, had lunch, showed up for our last three holes and then went to dinner.

Phil Mickelson, athlete

You can take wonderfully talented actors, wonderfully talented writers and producers, and, uh, do a wonderful show!... but if it doesn't hit with the public in two minutes, it's bye-bye.

Charlotte Rae, actress

I don't know if she should worry too much, I mean some of our greatest writers have had movies made of their books, lots of Hemingway novels were turned into movies, it doesn't hurt the book.

Paul Auster, author

Writers tell stories better, because they've had more practice, but everyone has a book in them. Yes, that old cliche.

Tanith Lee, writer

I love writers all across the board, but one who influenced me very directly at the beginning was Mary Renault.

Tanith Lee, writer

I do not write by any set time schedule. I realize there are many writers who follow a daily regime where they arise at 6:00 a.m., do some sort of exercise, eat breakfast and then sit down and produce words for a three to four hour period.

Donald McKay, designer

I love new writing, new blood, modern works by unknown writers.

Joseph Fiennes, actor

I think that most writers who wait until they're inspired to write are just waiting for the fear to subside.

Barry Mann, musician

An author is a person who can never take innocent pleasure in visiting a bookstore again. Say you go in and discover that there are no copies of your book on the shelves. You resent all the other books - I don't care if they are Great Expectations, Life on the Mississippi and the King James Bible that are on the shelves.

Roy Blount Jr.,

As an inspiration to the author, I do not think the cat can be over-estimated. He suggests so much grace, power, beauty, motion, mysticism. I do not wonder that many writers love cats; I am only surprised that all do not.

Carl Van Vechten, writer

The best fame is a writer's fame. It's enough to get a table at a good restaurant, but not enough to get you interrupted when you eat.

Fran Lebowitz, journalist

I don't think that there are very many good writers who don't live without a sense of tension. If they haven't got one immediately available to them, then they usually manage to manufacture it in their private lives.

John Le Carre, writer

There's a lot of Latinos right now, a lot of filmmakers and writers that are Latin too.

Benicio Del Toro, actor

The overwhelming triumph of the international multimedia conglomerate has resulted in less diversity within the field and has made it much harder for newer writers not only to break in, but to make any kind of a living while doing so.

Alan Dean Foster, author

Most producers I've known were writers first, and writing is a vital part of any game show. You could easily argue that the writing is the key ingredient that makes 'Jeopardy!' so great.

Randy West, entertainer

Before publishers' blurbs were invented, authors had to make their reputations by writing.

Laurence J. Peter, writer

Mystery writers' conventions are usually good, and this one has been excellent and extremely well prepared and thought out in advance. A lot of people have given their time and their skill, and a good deal of wit, and Anchorage has made us extraordinarily welcome.

Anne Perry, novelist

Editing is the same as quarrelling with writers - same thing exactly.

Harold Ross, editor

Ilike ideas writers have that I might not have written. Writers are there for a reason... to write for me.

Tim Roth, actor

Directors and writers have a lot of stress as well, because they have people they answer to.

Alexis Bledel, actress

Actors are good liars; writers are good liars with good memories.

Daniel Keys Moran, writer

I like contemporary American literature and I like biographies and I like jazz and I like baseball and I like writers who write about the human condition and sci-fi is just something that I happened into.

Jonathan Frakes, actor

It would not be fair to the critics of Rotary, who include some of the most brilliant of the British and American writers, to charge them with prejudice.

Paul Harris, entertainer

Some scientists use TeX or LatEX but for most people Word is the thing that writers use these days.

Miguel de Icaza, scientist

Many fiction writers eventually want to feel that their work forms a single, unified entity.

Peter Straub, writer

Nobody is surprised that women writers accurately represent male characters over and over again, no doubt because everybody knows that women understand men much better than vice-versa.

Peter Straub, writer

Our job as writers and thinkers in the time is how to bring about the occasions that let people have that first-person experience - or the metaphoric experience that allows them to see human continuity as opposed to total threat, total willingness to do violence.

Stanley Crouch, critic

The mercury rule writers also ignored mercury's special qualities.

Tom Allen, politician

On the other hand, I mean, that is what writers have always been supposed to do, was to rely on their own devices and to - I mean, writing is a lonely business.

Donna Tartt, novelist

There are numerous cases of that, where one of our writers discovers another writer whom he likes, and we then take that book on. So it's a very close relationship. We can do that because we're so small.

James Laughlin, poet

What is difficult is the promotion, balancing the public side of a writer's life with the writing. I think that's something a lot of writers are having to face. Writers have become much more public now.

Kazuo Ishiguro, author

Remember Graham Green's dictum that childhood is the bank balance of the writer? I think that all writers feel alienated. Most of us go back to an alienated childhood in some way or another. I know that I do.

John Le Carre, writer

I'd like to encourage people to please keep reading-and most importantly, to please keep trying new writers. The only way we can bring fresh new material into the field is if people go out and buy it.

Terri Windling, artist

Since fantasy isn't about technology, the accelleration has no impact at all. But it's changed the lives of fantasy writers and editors. I get to live in England and work for a New York publisher!

Terri Windling, artist

There are professional negotiators working for the writers and the actors, but basically you've got the writers and actors negotiating against businessmen. That's why you get rhetoric.

Dick Wolf, producer

Neophyte writers tend to believe that there is something magical about ideas and that if they can just get a hold of a good one, then their futures are ensured.

Lynn Abbey, author

I'm one of those writers who, when writing, believes she's god-and that she hasn't bestowed free will on any of her characters. In that sense there are no surprises in any of my books.

Lynn Abbey, author

I have experienced healing through other writers' poetry, but there's no way I can sit down to write in the hope a poem will have healing potential. If I do, I'll write a bad poem.

Marilyn Hacker, poet

It's one of the strangest attributes of this profession that when we writers get exhausted writing one thing, we relax by writing another.

Dan Simmons, author

Recipe writers hate to write about heat. They despise it. Because there aren't proper words for communicating what should be done with it.

Alton Brown, entertainer

Why would they have gone to the trouble to hire the best comedy writers in the business to write funny material for us to play straight, if the children in our audience were the only audience.

Burt Ward, actor

It's always a mistake for writers to key their submissions to world events, because they move so quickly and unpredictably, as has certainly proven the case in Afghanistan.

Richard Curtis, writer

I think that there are fiction writers for whom that works well. I could never do it. I feel as if, by the time I see that it's a poem, it's almost written in my head somewhere.

Sharon Olds, poet

There are some fine books and essays about that. Lewis Hyde has written about alcoholism and poets and the role that society gives its writers - encouraging them to die.

Sharon Olds, poet

I'm quite sure that most writers would sustain real poetry if they could, but it takes devotion and talent.

Marguerite Young, author

Kant and Hegel are interesting thinkers. But I am happy to insist that they are also terrible writers.

Alain de Botton, writer
