If your book doesn't keep you up nights writing it, it won't keep anyone up nights reading it.
—James A. Michener
The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.
Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.
There is no friend as loyal as a book.
If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.
Creativity is a wild mind and a disciplined eye.
