Willa Cather
“Writing ought either to be the manufacture of stories for which there is a market demand—a business as safe and commendable as making soap or breakfast foods—or it should be an art, which is always a search for something for which there is no market demand, something new and untried, where the values are intrinsic and have nothing to do with standardized values.”
Willa Cather

Stephen Hawking
“What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise.”
Stephen W. Hawking, A Briefer History of Time

Louis L'Amour
“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”
Louis L'Amour

Alasdair Gray
“A good poem is a tautology. It expands one word by adding a number which clarify it, thus making a new word which has never before been spoken. The seedword is always so ordinary that hardly anyone perceives it. Classical odes grow from and or because, romantic lyrics from but and if. Immature verses expand a personal pronoun ad nauseam, the greatest works bring glory to a common verb. Good poems, therefore, are always close to banality, over which, however, they tower like precipices.”
Alasdair Gray, Every Short Story, 1951-2012
