“If a man has any greatness in him, it comes to light, not in one flamboyant hour, but in the ledger of his daily work.”
Beryl Markham, West with the Night

“Writing is like driving at night in the fog. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”
E.L. Doctorow, Writers At Work: The Paris Review Interviews

“The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress.”
Philip Roth

“every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

“Women, as some witty Frenchman once put it, inspire us with the desire to do masterpieces and always prevent us from carrying them out.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Other Writings
