Just for Fun–Friday Quotes

Okay, let’s be honest. Who wouldn’t like to be quoted? For saying something clever, of course, not those foot-in-mouth comments family members somehow remember much more clearly than your birthday or that you won’t eat eggplant. Ever.

So until I’ve earned the right to be quoted about writing, here are some folks who have:

“No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else’s draft.” -H.G. Wells

“You have to know how to accept rejection and reject acceptance.” -Ray Bradbury

“A good many young writers make the mistake of enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope, big enough for the manuscript to come back in. This is too much of a temptation to the editor.” -Ring Lardner

“Any word you have to hunt for in a thesaurus is the wrong word. There are no exceptions to this rule.” -Stephen King

“A writer is a person for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.” -Thomas Mann
