Patricia Highsmith
“But there was not a moment when she did not see Carol in her mind, and all she saw, she seemed to see through Carol. That evening, the dark flat streets of New York, the tomorrow of work, the milk bottle dropped and broken in her sink, became unimportant. She flung herself on her bed and drew a line with a pencil on a piece of paper. And another line, carefully, and another. A world was born around her, like a bright forest with a million shimmering leaves.”
Patricia Highsmith, Carol

“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King

Haruki Murakami
“Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.”

Eudora Welty
“Indeed, learning to write may be part of learning to read. For all I know, writing comes out of a superior devotion to reading.”
Eudora Welty, On Writing
