To begin with, it is a toy and an 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 to the public.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42626/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42626/ <![CDATA[I believe more in the scissors than I do in the pencil.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42617/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42617/ <![CDATA[To withdraw myself from myself has ever been my sole, my entire, my sincere motive in scribbling at all.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42613/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42613/ <![CDATA[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.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42604/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42604/ <![CDATA[Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it's the answer to everything. To Why am I here? To uselessness. It's the streaming reason for living.

Organizations for writers palliate the writer's loneliness, but I doubt if they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates. For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42695/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/42695/ <![CDATA[There is nothing to writing.

From the tip of every branch, like a fat purple fig, a wonderful future beckoned and winked. One fig was a husband and a happy home and children, and another fig was a famous poet and another fig was a brilliant professor, and another fig was Ee Gee, the amazing editor, and another fig was Europe and Africa and South America, and another fig was Constantin and Socrates and Attila and a pack of other lovers with queer names and offbeat professions, and another fig was an Olympic lady crew champion, and beyond and above these figs were many more figs I couldn't quite make out. I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet. ]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/47148/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/47148/ <![CDATA[To the person in the bell jar, blank and stopped as a dead baby, the world itself is the bad dream.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/47147/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/47147/ <![CDATA[For the perfect idler, for the passionate observer it becomes an immense source of enjoyment to establish his dwelling in the throng, in the ebb and flow, the bustle, the fleeting and the infinite. To be away from home and yet to feel at home anywhere; to see the world, to be at the very center of the world, and yet to be unseen of the world, such are some of the minor pleasures of those independent, intense and impartial spirits, who do not lend themselves easily to linguistic definitions. The observer is a prince enjoying his incognito wherever he goes.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/39497/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/39497/ <![CDATA[When one realizes that his life is worthless he either commits suicide or travels.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/39518/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/39518/ <![CDATA[Journeys, like artists, are born and not made.
