I came across these quotes about writers and writing and thought I would share them with all of you. Enjoy!
I keep six honest serving men. (They taught me all I know); Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who. - Rudyard Kipling
Agatha Christie has given more pleasure in bed than any other woman. - Nancy Banks-Smith
Make'em laugh; make 'em cry; make 'em wait. - Charles Reade
The pen is mightier than the sword. - Edward Bulwer-Lytton
This morning I took out a comma and this afternoon I put it back again. - Oscar Wilde
What I like in a good author is not what he says, but what he whispers.
- Logan Pearsall Smith
Take care of the sense and the sounds will take of care themselves. - Lewis Carroll
Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with him. - Mel Brooks
The beginning is easy; what happens next is much harder. - Anonymous
Writing is easy: all you do is sit staring at the blank sheet of paper until the drops of blood form on your forehead. - Gene Fowler
Your manuscript is both good and original; but the parts that are good are not original, and the parts that are original are not good. - Samuel Johnson
Writing is a solitary occupation. Family, friends and society are the natural enemies of a writer. He must be alone, uninterrupted and slightly savage if he is to sustain and complete an undertaking. - Laurence Clark Powell
The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shockproof shit detector. This is the writer's radar and all great writers have had it. - Ernest Hemingway
Which of these quotes speak to you? Do you have any to share? My favorite is the quote from Gene Fowler. It really made me laugh.

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, red wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"~~author unknown
