#1. Things, events and people align and position themselves accordingly when a strong enough thought stirs them. - Author: Stephen Richards
Haruf Author quotes by Stephen Richards
#2. As in most obituaries, the author said little about the man; they rarely do. But the reticence here was greater than usual. It mentioned that Ravenscliff left a wife, but did not say when they married. It said nothing at all about his life, nor where he lived. There were not even any of the usual phrases to give a slight hint: 'a natural raconteur' (loved the sound of his own voice); 'Noted for his generosity to friends' (profligate); 'a formidable enemy . . .' (a brute); 'a severe but fair employer . . .' (a slave-driver); 'devoted to the turf' (never read a book in his life); 'a life-long bachelor' (vice); 'a collector of flowers' (this meant a great womaniser. Why it came to mean such a thing I do not know.) More browsing - Author: Iain Pears
Haruf Author quotes by Iain Pears
#3. Be careful, however, lest this reading of many authors and books of every sort may tend to make you discursive and unsteady. You must linger among a limited number of master thinkers, and digest their works, if you would derive ideas which shall win firm hold in your mind. Everywhere means nowhere. When a person spends all his time in foreign travel, he ends by having many acquaintances, but no friends. And the same thing must hold true of men who seek intimate acquaintance with no single author, but visit them all in a hasty and hurried manner. - Author: Seneca.
Haruf Author quotes by Seneca.
#4. If an author is going to put in a forbidden element in a storyline and actually have them doing things to protect their heroine then that's good. When these hero's end up sleeping with one woman after another all in the name of protecting their heroine's well then they come across as sleazy and not a character to admire or respect. Angst is fine for me if done the right way especially if I can feel the love they have for their women......but then it totally negates their love when you have explicit sex scenes with ow where they certainly do not appear to be in misery. - Author: Fre06 Begum
Haruf Author quotes by Fre06 Begum
#5. It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you don't know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, you don't know where you're going. And if you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong. - Author: Terry Pratchett
Haruf Author quotes by Terry Pratchett
#6. My family and friends have been monumentally supportive from well before I was a published author. - Author: John Corey Whaley
Haruf Author quotes by John Corey Whaley
#7. The day you STOP expecting people to have the same compassion as you do,love like you & act like you would in a situation ... Will be the day that will people stop letting you down. - Author: Stuart J. Scesney
Haruf Author quotes by Stuart J. Scesney
#8. The sensible author writes for no other posterity than his own
that is, for his age
so as to be able even then to take pleasurein himself. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Haruf Author quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#9. The size of your audience is more important than the size of your book - Author: Bernard Kelvin Clive
Haruf Author quotes by Bernard Kelvin Clive
#10. And a keen jealousy invades me, not of other people, but of that me made of ink and periods and commas, who wrote the novels I will write no more, the author who continues to enter the privacy of this young woman, while I, I here and now, with the physical energy I feel surging, much more reliable than the creative impulse, I am separated from her by the immense distance of a keyboard and a white page on the roller. - Author: Italo Calvino
Haruf Author quotes by Italo Calvino
#11. I love every single character in my books. Killing a character of causes me physical pain... It's like ripping a band-aid off too fast. - Author: B.A. Gabrielle
Haruf Author quotes by B.A. Gabrielle
#12. Maintain an attitude of anticipating success! - Author: Tae Yun Kim
Haruf Author quotes by Tae Yun Kim
#13. A chaste and lucid style is indicative of the same personal traits in the author. - Author: Hosea Ballou
Haruf Author quotes by Hosea Ballou
#14. Simonides, a poet famous in his generation, is, I think, author of the oldest satire that is now extant, and, as some say, of the first that was ever written. - Author: Joseph Addison
Haruf Author quotes by Joseph Addison
#15. In some instances, I would say the writer does deserve equal billing with the director. In other instances the director - especially if he wrote part of the script himself - is clearly more the author of the movie. - Author: Mark Romanek
Haruf Author quotes by Mark Romanek
#16. Telling a story is like trying to eat grapes with a fork. It's always trying to get away from you. And if you're a good author, and you've challenged yourself, and you're telling big stories, there's more and more that's trying to get away from you simultaneously. - Author: Brent Weeks
Haruf Author quotes by Brent Weeks
#17. [The Great Gatsby] is a tour de force of revision. So much so that critics, who rarely mention the edit of a book, commented on the quality of Gatsby's rewriting, not just its writing, in reviews. For H. L. Mencken, the novel had 'a careful and brilliant finish. ... There is evidence in every line of hard work and intelligent effort. ... The author wrote, tore up, rewrote, tore up again. There are pages so artfully contrived that one can no more imagine improvising them than one can imagine improvising a fugue.' ... Careful, sound, carefully written, hard effort, wrote and rewrote, artfully contrived not improvised, structure, discipline: all these terms refer, however obliquely, not to the initial act of inspiration, but to editing.
Organization and clarity do not dominate the writing process. At some point, though, a writer must pull coherence from confusion, illuminate what lives in shadow, shade what shines too brightly. Gatsby is the cat's meow case study of crossing what Michael Ondaatje calls 'that seemingly uncrossable gulf between an early draft of a book ... and a finished product' - in other words, editing. - Author: Susan Bell
Haruf Author quotes by Susan Bell
#18. Can an author create characters superior to himself? I would say no and in that negation include both the intellectual and the moral. I believe that from us cannot emerge creatures more lucid or more noble than our best moments. - Author: Anonymous
Haruf Author quotes by Anonymous
#19. The author says one of the sources of resilience is the ability to measure and perceive early warning signs so as to adapt. - Author: Andrew Zolli
Haruf Author quotes by Andrew Zolli
#20. The first who attracts the eye, the first in enlightenment, in power and in happiness, is the white man, the European, man par excellence; below him appear the Negro and the Indian. These two unfortunate races have neither birth, nor face, nor language, nor mores in common; only their misfortunes look alike. Both occupy an equally inferior position in the country that they inhabit; both experience the effects of tyranny; and if their miseries are different, they can accuse the same author for them. - Author: Alexis De Tocqueville
Haruf Author quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#21. I want to tell her that this isn't 'love'. that 'love' doesn't stay the same, it changes like we do, it is shaped by our experiences, by what we do, who we meet, what we learn. I'd like to explain that falling in love now is not how it'll be forever, and even if you stay with the same boy for the rest of your life, this incarnation of love won't stay the same, it never does. - Author: Dorothy Koomson
Haruf Author quotes by Dorothy Koomson
#22. An author is somebody who writes a story. It doesn't matter if you're a kid or if you're a grown-up, it doesn't matter if the book gets published and lots of people get to read it, or if you make just one copy and you share that book with one friend. - Author: Jarrett J. Krosoczka
Haruf Author quotes by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
#23. When you write, magic happens. Doors open. People smile and the world is a better place - Author: Alan Dapre
Haruf Author quotes by Alan Dapre
#24. Who on Earth could read a Vonnegut book and think that he was a grandfatherly bundle of warm fuzzy happiness? I mean, I read Vonnegut first as a ten year old, and it was shocking because he could joke in the face of such blackness and bleakness, and I'd never seen an author do that before. Everything was pointless, except, possibly, a few moments of love snatched from the darkness, a few moments in which we connect, or fail to. - Author: Neil Gaiman
Haruf Author quotes by Neil Gaiman
#25. All nonmimetic fiction is a balancing act between 'reality' and the obviously unreal, with no attempt by the author to make the latter seem like the former. Sometimes it's not an easy tightrope to walk. But when it succeeds, such fiction can brilliantly illuminate the human condition. - Author: Nancy Kress
Haruf Author quotes by Nancy Kress
#26. I hadn't been in proper school in three years. My parents were my two best friends. My third best friend was an author who did not know I existed. - Author: John Green
Haruf Author quotes by John Green
#27. You should author the narration of your life and organization. If you don't, someone will, and you may not like it. - Author: Assegid Habtewold
Haruf Author quotes by Assegid Habtewold
#28. In this story, the sun moves. In this story, every night meets a dawn and burns away in the bright morning. In this story, Winter can never hold back the Spring ... He is the best of all possible audiences, the only Audience to see every scene, the Author who became a Character and heaped every shadow on Himself. The Greeks were right. Live in fear of a grinding end and a dank hereafter. Unless you know a bigger God, or better yet, are related to Him by blood. - Author: N.D. Wilson
Haruf Author quotes by N.D. Wilson
#29. I wanted to become immortal. So I wrote a book. - Author: T.M. Williams
Haruf Author quotes by T.M. Williams
#30. Why I write is to spark dreams. - Author: Samuel Colbran
Haruf Author quotes by Samuel Colbran
#31. Here was the shattering of the second wall: I had read the Bible many times through, and I saw for myself that it had a holy Author; I saw for myself that it was a canonized collection of sixty-six books with a unified biblical revelation. I heard for myself that when the words "this is mine" came out of my mouth in congregational singing, I was attesting to this one, simple truth: that the line of communication that God ordained for his people required this wrestling with Scripture, and that I truly wanted both to hear God's voice breathed in my life, and I wanted God to hear my pleas. The fog burned away. The whole Bible, each jot and tittle, was my open highway to a holy God. - Author: Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Haruf Author quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#32. So many people spend years (and money) studying to be doctors, lawyers, actors, dancers, business executives and scientists - when you're an author, you can be any of these things, and you don't need a degree or certificate; all you need is an imagination, a dream and an open mind. - Author: Rebecca McNutt
Haruf Author quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#33. He had become the sky around the sun – alive, but not really there. - Author: Carla H. Krueger
Haruf Author quotes by Carla H. Krueger
The epic struggle between the Spitfire and the Messerschmitt 109 upon which so much of western civilization depended in the summer of 1940 has found the ideal biographer in David Isby. I write "biographer" because, like the men who flew these remarkable fighter planes, Isby sees them in almost human terms, transcending the mere mechanical. (Andrew Roberts, Author Of The Storm Of War ) - Author: Andrew Roberts
Haruf Author quotes by Andrew Roberts
#35. O woman! woman! thou shouldest have few sins of thine own to answer for! Thou art the author of such a book of follies in a man that it would need the tears of all the angels to blot the record out. - Author: Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Haruf Author quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#36. Friendship exhibits a glorious "nearness by resemblance" to Heaven itself where the very multitude of the blessed (which no man can number) increases the fruition which each has of God. For every soul, seeing Him in her own way, doubtless communicates that unique vision to all the rest. That, says an old author, is why the Seraphim in Isaiah's vision are crying "Holy, Holy, Holy" to one another (Isaiah VI, 3). The more we thus share the Heavenly Bread between us, the more we shall all have. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Haruf Author quotes by C.S. Lewis
#37. We, the French, the cleverest people on Earth, we, the exquisite, the charming, incomparable people, -listen, I mean it- we have a weakness for thieves. In our novels, in our plays, in our comic operas, whenever a thief appears, he is interesting. The author knows where the way to success lies. He is scarcely concerned with moral rectitude; the main thing is to please the audience. - Author: Paul Féval Père
Haruf Author quotes by Paul Féval Père
#38. Christianity, in its true form, tells us that there is an Author and that he is good, the essence of all that is good and beautiful and true, for he is the source of all these things. It tells us that he has set our hearts' longings within us, for he has made us to live in an Epic. It warns that the truth is always in danger of being twisted and corrupted and stolen from us because there is a Villain in the Story who hates our hearts and wants to destroy us. It calls us up into a Story that is truer and deeper than any other, and assures us that there we will find the meaning of our lives. - Author: John Eldredge
Haruf Author quotes by John Eldredge
#39. Author Brene Brown - her books inspire me to "dare greatly". - Author: Megan Alexander
Haruf Author quotes by Megan Alexander
#40. «"We're talking about the technical aspects of translation again. Do I have to do all the work here? Who can tell me one of the problems translators face?" Rashmi raises her hand. "Well, most words have different meanings." "Good," Professeur Cole says. "More. Elaborate." St. Clair sits next to Rashmi, but he's not listening. He scribbles something fiercely in the margins of his book. "Well," Rashmi says. "It's the translator's job to determine which definition the author means. And not only that, but there could be other meanings in relation to the context."55 "So what you're saying," Professeur Cole says, "is that the translator has a lot of decisions to make. That there are multiple meanings to be found in any word, in any sentence. In any situation." "Exactly," Rashmi says. And then she cuts her eyes at me.» - Author: Stephanie Perkins
