Quotes about writers, from writers


Isaac Asimov (d.1992)

1.) “We don’t reject writers; we reject pieces of paper with typing on them.”

2.) “Don’t stay mad and decide you are the victim of incompetence and stupidity. If you do, you’ll learn nothing and you’ll never become a writer.”

3.) “Don’t make the opposite mistake and decide the story is worthless. Editors differ, and so do tastes, and so do magazines’ needs. Try the story somewhere else.”

 

Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)

“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing”

Takeuchi Naoko (b.1967)

“Even though I thought my work was pretty crappy, somehow it got picked up serialized in some really popular venues. So to all of you out there who wants to be comic artists, don’t give up. You can do it.”

Toni Morrison (b.1931)

“If there’s a book you really want to read but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
