The Wise, The Witty And The Wicked

Words of wisdom, wit and occasionally wickedness from writers a little more famous than myself…

Because, with NaNoWriMo 2018 just around the corner, we all need a little inspiration once in a while…

The Wise…

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” ~ Ray Bradbury

“Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly — they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.” ~ Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” ~ Philip Pullman

“Tomorrow may be hell, but today was a good writing day, and on the good writing days nothing else matters.” ~ Neil Gaiman

“So what? All writers are lunatics!” ~ Cornelia Funke, Inkspell

The Witty

“I wouldn’t mind leaving myself behind if I could, but I don’t know the way out.” ~ Gregory Maguire

“There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story.” ~ Frank Herbert

“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.” ~ Winston S. Churchill

“Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve been to college.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster.” ~ Isaac Asimov

And The Wicked

“The virtuous man contents himself with dreaming that which the wicked man does in actual life.” ~ Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams

“I never wonder to see men wicked, but I often wonder to see them not ashamed.” ~ Jonathan Swift

“One must be cunning and wicked in this world.” ~ Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

“Stories are the thing which shapes our kinky and wicked minds.” ~ Deyth Banger

“Because her flesh knows heat, cold, affliction, I know fire, snow, and pain.” ~ Ray Bradbury, Something Wicked This Way Comes

And finally, because I am allowed, a quote of my own…
