"Even if one day people stop or are forced to stop writing and publishing, if books are no longer available, there will still be storytellers giving us mouth-to-ear artificial respiration, spinning old stories in new ways; loud and soft, heckling and halting, now close to laughter, now on the brink of tears." - Gunter Grass

[Quote No.40734] Need Area: Fun > Books
"I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has ... a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet’s, the writer’s, duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past." - William Faulkner

[Quote No.40735] Need Area: Fun > Books
"All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer." - Ernest Hemingway

[Quote No.40736] Need Area: Fun > Books
"[All great writing is infused with subjective and objective Truth:] Sometimes when I was starting a new story and I could not get it going...I would...think...All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know... The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in shock-proof shit [un-truth] detector. This is the writer’s radar and all great writers have had it." - Ernest Hemingway

[Quote No.41511] Need Area: Fun > Books
"Reading is one of the main things I do. Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss." - Nora Ephron
(1941 - ), author and screen-writer. She wrote the film-scipts for the movies 'Silkwood' (1983), 'When Harry Met Sally' (1989), 'Sleepless in Seattle' (1993), and 'You've Got Mail' (1998).
