I always write a good first line, but I have trouble in writing the others.
The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word 'crisis.' One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger - but recognize the opportunity.
Richard M. Nixon quotes
In order to write about life, first you must live it!
Ernest Hemingway quotes
Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don't feel I should be doing something else.
Gloria Steinem quotes
I think all the boys that write the screaming stuff would write the best love songs.... because they have the most to hide. The guys that are in the most pain are usually the ones with the biggest hearts.
Tori Amos quotes
Either write things worth reading or do things worth the writing.
Benjamin Franklin quotes
The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write one story, and writes another.
James Matthew Barrie, Sr. quotes
I write constantly, but only in my journals. I have three of them: one for travel, one for home, and one I write in before bed. But the last thing I want is other people reading it..... What's really fun is reading your journal, like a year later, or even a month, and realizing how much you've changed. You're looking at something you said, something you really meant at the time, and you're like, 'I can't believe I ever really believed that! I am such an asshole!' I think that's the greatest thing about growing up... .
Cameron Diaz quotes
Originality is not seen in single words or even sentences. Originality is the sum total of a man's thinking or his writing.
Isaac Bashevis Singer quotes
To be a well-flavored man is the gift of fortune, but to write or read comes by nature.
William Shakespeare quotes
