Ernest Hemingway
“Get black on white.”
Ernest Hemingway

Flannery O'Connor
“People without hope not only don’t write novels, but what is more to the point, they don’t read them. They don’t take long looks at anything, because they lack the courage. The way to despair is to refuse to have any kind of experience, and the novel, of course, is a way to have experience.”
Flannery O'Connor

Bret Easton Ellis
“...there’s no grand plan. All I know is that I write the books I want to write. All that other stuff is meaningless to me.”
Bret Easton Ellis

Richard Ford
“I like writing that’s smart on the page.”
Richard Ford

Rainer Maria Rilke
“I would like to beg you dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
