“Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works.”
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.
But man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed but not defeated.
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.
There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.
