Writers

There are two kinds of writers; the great ones who can give you truths, and the lessor ones, who can only give you themselves.

Clifton Fadiman (1904-1999) American editor and writer.

He is outside of everything, and alien everywhere. He is an aesthetic solitary. His beautiful, light imagination is the wing that on the autumn evening just brushes the dusky window.

Henry James (1843-1916) American author.

Prose is architecture, not interior decoration, and the Baroque is over.

Ernest Hemingway (1898-1961) American Writer.

I have tried simply to write the best I can. Sometimes I have good luck and write better than I can.

Ernest Hemingway (1898-1961) American Writer.

William James (1842-1910) American philosopher and psychologist.

Publicidad

The greatest part of a writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write; a man will turn over half a library to make one book.

Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) British author.

There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.

Ernest Hemingway (1898-1961) American Writer.

Mr. Faulkner, of course, is interested in making your mind rather than your flesh creep.

Clifton Fadiman (1904-1999) American editor and writer.

A writer is congenitally unable to tell the truth and that is why we callwhat he writes fiction.

William Faulkner (1897-1962) American novelist and short-story writer.

A writer must teach himself that the basest of all things is to be afraid.

William Faulkner (1897-1962) American novelist and short-story writer.
