flowers & quotes on writers

“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.” 

“A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity."

Franz Kafka

“I do not love men: I love what devours them.” 

Andre Gide  

“Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spend the rest of the day putting the pieces together.”

Ray Bradbury

“The more you leave out, the more you highlight what you leave in.” 

Henry Green
