E. B. White Quotes about writers
#6479 James A. Michener

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 Quotes about writers
#10515 W. H. Auden

At first critics classified authors as Ancients, that is to say, Greek and Latin authors, and Moderns, that is to say, every post-Classical Author. Then they classified them by eras, the Augustans, the Victorians, etc., and now they classify them by decades, the writers of the '30's, '40's, etc. Very soon, it seems, they will be labeling authors, like automobiles, by the year. .

W. H. Auden Quotes about writers
#11331 Isaac Asimov

writers foresee the inevitable, and although problems and catastrophes may be inevitable, solutions are not. .

Isaac Asimov Quotes about writers

Larry Niven Quotes about writers
#12484 Dorothy Parker

All those writers who write about their own childhood! Gentle God, if I wrote about mine you wouldn't sit in the same room with me. .

Dorothy Parker Quotes about writers
#12915 Walt Whitman

We Americans have yet to really learn our own antecedents, and sort them, to unify them. They will be found ampler than has been supposed, and in widely different sources. Thus far, impress'd by New England writers and schoolmasters, we tacitly abandon ourselves to the notion that our United States has been fashion'd from the British Islands only, and essentially form a second England only — which is a very great mistake. .

Walt Whitman Quotes about writers
#13494 T. S. Eliot

Some one said: "The dead writers are remote from us because we know so much more than they did." Precisely, and they are that which we know. .

T. S. Eliot Quotes about writers
#13818 Thomas Paine

The Theophilanthropists do not call themselves the disciples of such or such a man. They avail themselves of the wise precepts that have been transmitted by writers of all countries and in all ages. .

Thomas Paine Quotes about writers
#17887 Oliver Goldsmith

As writers become more numerous, it is natural for readers to become more indolent. .

Oliver Goldsmith Quotes about writers
#20281 Ernest Hemingway

The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shock-proof, shit detector. This is the writer's radar and all great writers have had it. .

Ernest Hemingway Quotes about writers
#23508 Jorge Luis Borges

Like every writer, he measured the virtues of other writers by their performance, and asked that they measure him by what he conjectured or planned. .

Jorge Luis Borges Quotes about writers
#25198 Cyril Connolly

Whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first call promising. Young writers if they are to mature require a period of between three and seven years in which to live down their promise. Promise is like the mediaeval hangman who after settling the noose, pushed his victim off the platform and jumped on his back, his weight acting a drop while his jockeying arms prevented the unfortunate from loosening the rope. When he judged him dead he dropped to the ground. .

Cyril Connolly Quotes about writers
#26609 Emil Cioran

Philosophers write for professors; thinkers for writers. .

Emil Cioran Quotes about writers
#29891 Bob Dylan

Come writers and critics Who prophesize with your pen And keep your eyes wide The chance won’t come again And don’t speak too soon For the wheel’s still in spin And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s naming.’ For the loser now will be later to win .

Bob Dylan Quotes about writers

AnaЇs Nin Quotes about writers

Gore Vidal Quotes about writers

Gore Vidal Quotes about writers
#38672 Gore Vidal

You hear all this whining going on, "Where are our great writers?" The thing I might feel doleful about is: Where are the readers? .

Gore Vidal Quotes about writers
#51371 Jeff Abbott

I do think Austin is a great town for writers; we have a lot of them here. But I grew up in Austin, and so I didn't move here because it was a creative mecca; I was just lucky to live here. .

Jeff Abbott Quotes about writers
#53355 Scott Adsit

'Monty Python' and 'The Simpsons' have ruined comedy for writers for the rest of our lives. .

Scott Adsit Quotes about writers
#53848 Jenny Agutter

Joaquin Andujar Quotes about writers

Edward St Aubyn Quotes about writers
#65292 Julianna Baggott

Julianna Baggott Quotes about writers

David Alan Basche Quotes about writers
#74636 Thomas Berger

Why do writers write? Because it isn't there. .

Thomas Berger Quotes about writers
#75623 Steve Berry

Ninety-five percent of all writers who write do not get published, but 100 percent of all writers write because they have a voice in their head. The vast majority of writers simply write because they have to. .

Steve Berry Quotes about writers
#76160 Sanjeev Bhaskar

When we created 'Goodness Gracious Me,' it was quoting 'Python' and Woody Allen lines that really bonded the writers, and the 'Spamalot' material is so utterly, wonderfully surreal that it hasn't dated. .

Eric Brown Quotes about writers

Louise Brown Quotes about writers

#93249 Santiago Cabrera

In America, I am brown; I'm 'of colour', so I would be offered Latin roles, and I've fought against that. I don't want to be put in a category, to be just offered the same sort of thing. For me, it's all about different roles, telling the stories of the great writers. .
