William Faulkner
“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”
William Faulkner

William Faulkner
“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world...would do this, it would change the earth.”
William Faulkner

Milan Kundera
“For Sabina, living in truth, lying neither to ourselves nor to others, was possible only away from the public: the moment someone keeps an eye on what we do, we involuntarily make allowances for that eye, and nothing we do is truthful. Having a public, keeping a public in mind, means living in lies.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Jean Genet
“I could not take lightly the idea that people made love without me.”
Jean Genet, The Thief's Journal

Jean Genet
“...beauty is the projection of ugliness and by developing certain monstrosities we obtain the purest ornaments.”
Jean Genet, Miracle of the Rose
