The Write Quotations

Winston Churchill

“Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy and amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him out to the public.”

William Faulkner

“It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.”

Ernest Hemingway

“I learned never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes

“He has half the deed done who has made a beginning.”

Edgar Allan Poe

“I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.”

James Steinbeck

“Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.”

Stumble It!

  2. I found it on Photobucket searching under wishing wells. It is rather dreamy isn’t it. 🙂
