Jean Rhys
“All of writing is a huge lake. There are great rivers that feed the lake, like Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky. And then there are mere trickles, like Jean Rhys. All that matters is feeding the lake. I don't matter. The lake matters. You must keep feeding the lake.”
Jean Rhys

“There's a time and place for everything, and I believe it’s called 'fan fiction'.”
Joss Whedon

Virginia Woolf
“How much better is silence; the coffee cup, the table. How much better to sit by myself like the solitary sea-bird that opens its wings on the stake. Let me sit here for ever with bare things, this coffee cup, this knife, this fork, things in themselves, myself being myself.”
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

John Berryman
“You should always be trying to write a poem you are unable to write, a poem you lack the technique, the language, the courage to achieve. Otherwise you're merely imitating yourself, going nowhere, because that's always easiest.”
John Berryman

Herman Melville
“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.”
Herman Melville, Moby-Dick or, the Whale
