  • My readers think that I write for the day because my writings are based on the day. So I shall have to wait until my writings are obsolete. Then they may acquire timeliness.

    Karl Kraus (1976). “Half-truths & One-and-a-half Truths: Selected Aphorisms”
  • The main thing I try to do is write as clearly as I can. Because I have the greatest respect for the reader, and if he's going to the trouble of reading what I've written -- I'm a slow reader myself and I guess most people are -- why, the least I can do is make it as easy as possible for him to find out what I'm trying to say, trying to get at. I rewrite a good deal to make it clear.

  • Sequencing - the careful striptease by which you reveal information to the reader - matters in an article, but it is absolutely essential to a book.

  • I've always been an avid reader. Everyone in my family read a lot. Considering we were from a little town, we were pretty literate.

    Avid   Littles   Towns  
    "New Again: John Malkovich". Interview with Becky Johnston, December 10, 2015.
  • Every reader finds himself. The writer's work is merely a kind of optical instrument that makes it possible for the reader to discern what, without this book, he would perhaps never have seen in himself.

  • There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates' loot on Treasure Island...

    "Peter's Quotations : Ideas for Our Time". Book by Laurence J. Peter, 1977.
  • Miss Havisham is a glitch in the smooth functioning of the Patriarchy, enforcing awareness of a moment of social disaster and personal shame, something it seems she would want us to forget (but no one would forget). (Maybe an interesting "discussion question" for readers of Complicated Grief might be, "What do Terry Barton and Miss Havisham have in common?"?)

  • Because I don't give the studios advanced quotes or an advanced look at my reviews. I think the readers deserve to read my reviews before the studios do.

    Thinking   Giving   Looks  
    Interview With Chris Neumer,
  • To me exposition always contains tenderness. While a dramatized scene is a way of proving and guaranteeing an emotional experience for the reader, exposition assumes that the reader is sophisticated and can see the universal.

  • If you are an ardent reader, seek not brilliant and erudite texts; otherwise the demon of haughtiness will strike your heart. But like a wise bee that gathers honey from flowers, so also through your reading obtain healing for your soul.

    Wise   Reading   Flower  
  • Newspapers are busily experimenting with different models. Traditionally, and I suspect in hindsight very mistakenly, online news was free. And once given free access readers felt it was their entitlement.

    "The future of newspapers, the end of journalism". Malcolm Turnbull's Speech to the Advanced Centre of Journalism at the University of Melbourne, December 8, 2011.
  • [I]t's not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship. As always, young readers will be the real losers.

    Real   Book   Fire  
    FaceBook post by Judy Blume from Oct 18, 2013
  • A form wherein we can enjoy simultaneously what is best in both the novel and the short story form. My plan was to create a book that affords readers some of the novel's long-form pleasures but that also contains the short story's ability to capture what is so difficult about being human - the brevity of our moments, their cruel irrevocability.

    Book   Long   Stories  
    Interview with Gina Frangello, September 30, 2012.
  • A book is a human fact; a great book like Seraphita gathers together numerous psychological elements. These elements become coherent through a sort of psychological beauty. It does the reader a service.

    Beauty   Book   Together  
  • Amaryllis in Blueberry is a rich, evocative story about an unusual family that will sweep readers away to another place and time. Amaryllis's voice is a spellbinding and unique blend of naivet and wisdom. A perfect melding of family saga, murder mystery and a meditation on faith, loyalty and love, this novel will both haunt and entertain you.

    Loyalty   Unique   Voice  
  • God is a spirit. Jesus was led up of the Spirit to be tempted of the Devil; and it is also true that spirits are very likely to lead men to the Devil. Too intimate acquaintance with whisky toddy overnight is often followed by the delirium tremens and blue-devils on the morrow. We advise our readers to eschew alike spirituous and spiritual mixtures. They interfere sadly with sober thinking, and play the Devil with your brains.

    Spiritual   Jesus   Men  
  • I am obliged to deal with hundreds of men and to make them live without killing the reader.

    Men   Killing   Reader  
    George Sarton (1993). “Hellenistic Science and Culture in the Last Three Centuries B.C.”, p.11, Courier Corporation
  • I knew where the magnets were, behind the gyprock, and the magnets were very powerful. I think they had to be powerful for me, otherwise the reader wouldn't have a reciprocal experience. But I was very careful to bury them deeply, deeply in the plaster and paint over them. I didn't want anybody to directly access them, and that's gradually changed for me.

  • It is hard for me to speak of themes. I like the reader to do that. Otherwise it feels like writing a 3rd grade essay on someone else's work.

    Writing   Speak   Theme  
  • Those who write against vanity want the glory of having written well, and their readers the glory of reading well, and I who write this have the same desire, as perhaps those who read this have also.

  • A lot of the ways that I like to approach comic books, or anything like that, is not just the book itself, but the fans of it, the readers, the world that exists around it as a cultural object.

    Book   Way   Fans  
  • Fiction is more dangerous than nonfiction because it can seduce better. I think we all know this, know that deeper truths can be approached in fiction than in fact. There are risks for the reader, because after reading certain books you find you have changed irreversibly. There are risks for writers: in China, now, and Ethiopia and other countries right now, writers face real persecution.

    Interview with Peter Orner, February 10, 2014.
  • Readers want more of the same from you. So stick to one genre.

    Want   Sticks   Genre  
  • I'd always loved to read - and come from a family of readers - but I never thought about writing as a career.

  • I think, in a written novel, the way in which you play with the readers' emotion or the way in which you engage the readers' emotions can be very indirect. You could come at it through irony or comedy, etcetera, and you could capture people's sympathies and feelings kind of by stealth if you like.

  • A historian who would convey the truth has got to lie. Often he must enlarge the truth by diameters, otherwise his reader would not be able to see it.

    Lying   Able   Historian  
    Mark Twain, Bob Blaisdell (2013). “The Wit and Wisdom of Mark Twain”, p.74, Courier Corporation
  • I know that books seem like the ultimate thing that's made by one person, but that's not true. Every reading of a book is a collaboration between the reader and the writer who are making the story up together.

    Book   Reading   Writing  
  • There is nothing better fitted to delight the reader than change of circumstances and varieties of fortune.

    "Epistles", V. 12, as quoted in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 93-96,
  • The readers are very similar. The books they know, the questions they ask, the characters they like. That is similar.

    Book   Character   Reader  
  • If one loves stories, then one would naturally love the story of the story. Or the story behind the story, pick your preposition. It does seem to me to be a kind of animal impulse almost, a mammalian curiosity. For a reader to wonder about the autobiography in a fiction may be completely unavoidable and in fact may speak to the success of a particular narrative, though it may also speak to its failure.
