#1. In my life, I have come to realize that people are afraid of a revolution. A true revolution doesn't have to be fought with an AK47, because our words and practice of non-violent can move mountains. - Author: Henry Johnson Jr
Liberian Author quotes by Henry Johnson Jr
#2. Just as the office worker dreams of murdering his hated boss and so is saved from really murdering him, so it is with the author; with his great dreams he helps his readers to survive, to avoid their worst intentions. And society, without realizing it respects and even exalts him, albeit with a kind of jealousy, fear and even repulsion, since few people want to discover the horrors that lurk in the depths of their souls. This is the highest mission of great literature, and there is no other. - Author: Ernesto Sabato
Liberian Author quotes by Ernesto Sabato
#3. My office walls are covered with autographs of famous writers - it's what my children call my 'dead author wall.'

Liberian Author quotes by Debbie Macomber
#4. The terms of copyright last far too long: either the life of the author plus 70 years after death for a personal work or 95 years for a corporate work. That length doesn't encourage more authorship - it merely limits the speakers who could share powerful speeches, books, and films. - Author: Marvin Ammori
Liberian Author quotes by Marvin Ammori
#5. If modesty and candor are necessary to an author in his judgment of his own works, no less are they in his reader. - Author: Sarah Fielding

Liberian Author quotes by Stephen Richards
#7. The riot screws did not stop there, they dragged him down the corridor where ten other nameless screws repeatedly coshed him over the head and face and body. Dingus by now was totally out cold, he had received the equivalent injuries of someone who was involved in a car crash. - Author: Stephen Richards
Liberian Author quotes by Stephen Richards
#8. When people fail to recognize your work just don't give up yet. Because it's not always about the recognition, sometimes it's about the "passion" that we hold onto..!!! - Author: Gowtham Gurunath
Liberian Author quotes by Gowtham Gurunath
#9. The truth is that I need the stimulus of other people. Alone, over my dead fire, I tend to see the thin places in my own stories. The real novelist, the perfectly simple human being, could go on, indefinitely, imagining. He would not integrate, as I do. He would not have this devastating sense of grey ashes in a burnt-out grate. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Liberian Author quotes by Virginia Woolf
#10. Don't be afraid of your own imagination. No matter what you write, there's always someone out there who will appreciate it. - Author: B.A. Gabrielle

#18. The author wishes to thank: Good fortune, Godiva chocolates, and Slim-Fast - Author: Rachel Caine
Liberian Author quotes by Rachel Caine
#19. This God-centered way of confessing and forsaking sin is a powerful instrument of change. Fear of consequences changes behavior through external coercion - the inner impulses remain. However, a desire to please and honor the one who saved you and who is worthy of all praise - that changes you from the inside out. The Puritan author Richard Sibbes, in his classic The Bruised Reed, says that repentance is not "a little bowing down our heads . . . but a working our hearts to such a grief as will make sin [itself] more odious unto us than punishment."330 - Author: Timothy J. Keller
Liberian Author quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#20. The author assumed that the main task of government is to distribute the collective wealth of society among its members, and that, in the matter of distribution, the government is uniquely competent. The fact that wealth can be distributed only if it is first created seemed to have escaped his notice. - Author: Roger Scruton
Liberian Author quotes by Roger Scruton
#21. This part concerns the unshakable feeling one gets, one thinks, after the unthinkable and unexplainable happens
the feeling that, if this person can die, and that person can die, and this can happen and that can happen ... well, then what exactly is preventing everything from happening to this person, he around whom everything else happened?
Just as some police
particularly those they dramatize on television
might be familiar with death, and might expect it an any instant
so does the author, possessing a naturally paranoid disposition, compounded by environmental factors that make it seem not only possible but probable that whatever there might be out there that snuffs out life is probably sniffing around for him, that his number is perennially, eternally up, that his draft number is low, that his bingo card is hot, that he has a bull's-eye on his chest and target on his back. It's fun. You'll see. - Author: Dave Eggers
Liberian Author quotes by Dave Eggers
#22. "One cannot be a mother without first being a person; family, husband, and children should not be allowed, as is so often the case, to steal a woman's selfhood and her dreams."
Mother to Sherlock, Mycroft, and Enola Holmes by author Nancy Springer - Author: Vannessa Anderson
Liberian Author quotes by Vannessa Anderson
#23. Like "love," "hope" is one of those ridiculously disproportional words that by all rights should be a lot longer. - Author: Jim Butcher
Liberian Author quotes by Jim Butcher
#24. You think writing a book is hard? Wait until you give it to someone to read. - Author: Ken Stark
Liberian Author quotes by Ken Stark
#25. Both villains and heroes are a bit boring, really, unless they're flawed and broken somehow. If they're not flawed and broken, then clearly they need to be broken and made flawed. That's what an author does if he or she has any dignity. - Author: Ben Peek
Liberian Author quotes by Ben Peek
#26. When you write, magic happens. Doors open. People smile and the world is a better place - Author: Alan Dapre
Liberian Author quotes by Alan Dapre
#27. 'Reasoning doesn't have this function of helping us to get better beliefs and make better decisions,' said Hugo Mercier, who is a co-author of the journal article, with Dan Sperber. 'It was a purely social phenomenon. It evolved to help us convince others and to be careful when others try to convince us.' Truth and accuracy were beside the point. - Author: Ezra Klein
Liberian Author quotes by Ezra Klein
#28. Before World War I, self-improvement meant being less self-involved, less vain: helping others, focusing on schoolwork, becoming better read, and cultivating empathy. Author - Author: Peggy Orenstein
Liberian Author quotes by Peggy Orenstein
#29. A completed book exists in its entirety, although we humans read it in a time sequence from the beginning to the end. Just as an author does not write the first chapter, and then leave the others to write themselves, So God's creativity is not to seem as uniquely confined to, or even especially invested in, the event of the Big Bang. Rather his creativity has been seen as permeating equally all space and all time: his role as Creator and Sustainer merge. - Author: Russell Stannard
Liberian Author quotes by Russell Stannard
#30. Good ideas come from everywhere. It's more important to recognize a good idea than to author it. - Author: Jeanne Gang
Liberian Author quotes by Jeanne Gang
#31. I keep telling the screws over and over again, 'If you treat a young boy in prison like a dog, keep him in a cell that is like a cage and constantly beat him and bully him, that boy is going to grow up hating yous and the system.' The only thing on his mind will be revenge, maybe it is not revenge on the screws that so frequently bullied and tortured him, but in the boy's eyes he is getting revenge on the uniform, as it all means the same thing in the boy's or man's eyes. - Author: Stephen Richards
Liberian Author quotes by Stephen Richards
#32. If we are perplexed by an apparent contradiction in Scripture, it is not allowable to say, 'The author of this book is mistaken'; but either the manuscript is faulty, or the translation is wrong, or you have not understood. - Author: Saint Augustine
Liberian Author quotes by Saint Augustine
#33. I have the most devoted and loyal following. I could probably type up my grocery list and they'd all want to read it. I love that they're willing to let me go wherever I need to go as an author, and they're happy to come along for the ride as the reader. - Author: Jodi Picoult
Liberian Author quotes by Jodi Picoult
#34. The Allwise Creator hath been dishonored by being made the author of fable and the human mind degraded by believing it. - Author: Thomas Paine

#35. Today is the day that you create worlds, you change lives, you make a something, a someone, out of nothing.
Today is the day you become a writer. - Author: Alessandra Torre
Liberian Author quotes by Alessandra Torre
#36. In Endless Quest books, you start the plot, and the character has to make choices. Then you have to write one choice over here, one choice over there. The author might get one or two choices out. - Author: Margaret Weis
Liberian Author quotes by Margaret Weis
#37. Gradually it has become clear to me what every great philosophy so far has been: namely, the personal confession of its author and a kind of involuntary and unconscious memoir. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Liberian Author quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#38. I learned that books are never finished, that it is possible for stories to go on writing themselves without an author. - Author: Paul Auster
Liberian Author quotes by Paul Auster
#39. One could not imagine a process more open to the elephantine logic of the Bible-smasher than this: that the sun should be created after the sunlight. The conception that lies at the back of the phrase is indeed profoundly antagonistic to much of the modern point of view. To many modern people it would sound like saying that foliage existed before the first leaf ; it would sound like saying that childhood existed before a baby was born. The idea is, as I have said, alien to most modern thought, and like many other ideas which are alien to most modern thought, it is a very subtle and a very sound idea. Whatever be the meaning of the passage in the actual primeval poem, there is a very real metaphysical meaning in the idea that light existed before the sun and stars. It is not barbaric; it is rather Platonic. The idea existed before any of the machinery which made manifest the idea. Justice existed when there was no need of judges, and mercy existed before any man was oppressed.

The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists, as the mother can love the unborn child. In creative art the essence of a book exists before the book or before even the details or main features of the book; the author enjoys it and lives in it with a kind of prophetic rapture. He wishes to write a comic story before he has thought of a single comic inciden - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Liberian Author quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#40. An author is a fool who, not content with boring those he lives with, insists on boring future generations. - Author: Montesquieu
Liberian Author quotes by Montesquieu
#41. What girl doesn't love the tortured bad boy? I think when it comes to bad boys, girls/women have this desire to step forward and try to rescue that sort of individual. It is very appealing to the nurturer inside us I think.
- author Lacey Weatherford during an interview on whether she was a bad boy kinda girl - Author: Lacey Weatherford
Liberian Author quotes by Lacey Weatherford
#42. When we come across a natural style, we are surprised and delighted; for we expected an author, and we
find a man. - Author: Blaise Pascal
Liberian Author quotes by Blaise Pascal
#43. Writer? Author? Storyteller, that's what I decided to be. - Author: Robert McCammon
Liberian Author quotes by Robert McCammon
#44. Just as the weak, despairing person is unwilling to hear anything about any consolation eternity has for him, so a person in such despair does not want to hear anything about it, either, but for a different reason: this very consolation would be his undoing; as a denunciation of all existence. Figuratively speaking, it is as if an error slipped into an author's writing and the error became conscious of itself as an error; perhaps it actually was not a mistake but in a much higher sense an essential part of the whole production, and now this error wants to mutiny against the author, out of hatred toward him, forbidding him to correct it and in maniacal defiance saying to him: No! I refuse to be erased! I will stand as a witness against you; a witness that you are a second-rate author. - Author: Soren Kierkegaard
Liberian Author quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#45. I do not bother and care, such love that does not address, in a direct way. The words of love only can effect, when those are, openly to whom you love. Otherwise, such words are just as beautiful quotes or lovely feelings of an author. - Author: Ehsan Sehgal
Liberian Author quotes by Ehsan Sehgal
#46. He traced her arched eyebrow. "Every morning when I wake up with you at my side, you're more beautiful than yesterday. - Author: Lindsay McKenna
Liberian Author quotes by Lindsay McKenna
#47. I see the author as the person who has written; the writer, the one involved in the process of writing. And they're not necessarily friends. The writer is the one I want to reinforce; the author would just feed on the reviews - so I'm in favour of starving him. - Author: Edward St. Aubyn
Liberian Author quotes by Edward St. Aubyn
#48. Now I believe that true lasting change and sustainability--cultural or otherwise--must rely on something more ancient and universal: art--any form that evokes the archetypal imagery that lives deep in the human psyche--can, in words i once heard imparted by the author Terry Tempest Williams, "bypass rhetoric and pierce the heart. - Author: Amy Irvine
Liberian Author quotes by Amy Irvine
#49. As to the origin of civil Societies or Governments; the Author of our Being, has given Man a Nature to be fitted for, and disposed to Society. It was not good for Man at first to be alone; his nature is social, having various Affections, Propensities and Passions, which respect Society, and cannot be indulged without a social Intercourse. - Author: Abraham J. Williams
Liberian Author quotes by Abraham J. Williams
