“Writers are the people who are most awkward with words. Their whole life revolves around one right word.”
Saket Suryesh

“Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
Francis of Assisi

“You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.”
Beverly Sills

“All you have to do [to win a Pulitzer Prize] is spend your life running from one awful place to another, write about every horrible thing you see. The civilized world reads about it, then forgets it, but pats you on the head for doing it and gives you a reward as appreciation for changing nothing.”
David Baldacci, The Christmas Train

“first time I realized that a man was behind each one of the books. A man had to think them up. A man had to take a long time to put them down on paper.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

“The home environment can undo a lot you try to do at school. That's why we've lowered the kindergarten age year after year until now we're almost snatching them from the cradle.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
