"Finishing a book is just like you took a child out in the back yard and shot it."
"A writer needs three things, experience, observation, and imagination, any two of which, at times any one of which, can supply the lack of the others."
"When a man is in doubt about this or that in his writing, it will often guide him if he asks himself how it will tell a hundred years hence."
"Ink on paper is as beautiful to me as flowers on the mountains; God composes, why shouldn't we?"
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
