Famous quotes containing the word write:

    Only truthful hands write true poems. I cannot see any basic difference between a handshake and a poem.
    Paul Celan [Paul Antschel] (1920–1970)

    No one can write a best-seller by taking thought. The slightest touch of insincerity blurs its appeal. The writer who keeps his tongue in his cheek, who knows that he is writing for fools and that, therefore, he had better write like a fool, makes a respectable living out of serials and novelettes; but he will never make the vast, the blaring, half a million success. That comes of blended sincerity and vitality.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    Writers don’t write from experience, although many are hesitant to admit that they don’t. ...If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.
    Nikki Giovanni (b. 1943)
