Daniel Daniel said: " I tagged this book as being "currently read" since it isn't really one that you read cover to cover in a single sitting. Rather, it's one that is far more suited to perusing whenever you might find yourself in need of comfort or inspiration. "

On Writing by Stephen King
“If you expect to succeed as a writer, rudeness should be the second-to-least of your concerns. The least of all should be polite society and what it expects. If you intend to write as truthfully as you can, your days as a member of polite society are numbered, anyway.”
Stephen King

Ray Bradbury
“Ask for no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal.
And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping it's life away.
To hell with that," he said, "shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Stephen King
“Want to know the best thing about teaching? Seeing that moment when a kid discovers his or her gift." George Amberson/Jake Epping in Stephen King's 11/22/63”
Stephen King

Stephen King
“Writing controlled fiction is called "plotting." Buckling your seatbelt and letting the story take over, however...that is called "storytelling." Storytelling is as natural as breathing; plotting is the literary version of artificial respiration.”
Stephen King

Stephen King
“It had that comfortably sprung, lived-in look that library books with a lively circulation always get; bent page corners, a dab of mustard on page 331, a whiff of some reader's spilled after-dinner whiskey on page 468. Only library books speak with such wordless eloquence of the power good stories hold over us, how good stories abide, unchanged and mutely wise, while we poor humans grow older and slower.”
Stephen King, 'Salem's Lot

Robert A. Heinlein
“Nothing of value is free. Even the breath of life is purchased at birth only through gasping effort and pain... The best things in life are beyond money; their price is agony and sweat and devotion... and the price demanded for the most precious of all things in life is life itself--ultimate cost for perfect value”
Robert A. Heinlein
