Writing Quotes, Barton Fink Edition
I'm a writer, you monsters, I create! I create for a living, I'm a creator! I am a creator! (points at head) This, this is my uniform! This is how I service common man!
-Barton Fink, from the eponymous movie
"If a writer knows enough about what he is writing about, he may omit things that he knows. The dignity of movement of an iceberg is due to only one ninth of it being above water."
- Ernest Hemingway
"Nothing matters but the writing. There has been nothing else worthwhile...a stain upon the silence."
- Samuel Beckett
