Marge Piercy...

Writers are like crows; they carry off what is bright and shiny, without respect for its original use or intent.

Thornton Wilder...

Everybody should eavesdrop once in a while. There's nothing like eavesdropping to show you that the world outside your head is different from the world inside your head.

John Le Carre...

A spy,
like a writer,
lives outside the mainstream population.
He steals his experience
through bribes and reconstructs it.

Shannon Stacey...

Fold it into a lovely and graceful Origami swan, and then step on its little head.

From "Thirteen things you can do with a printed copy of a negative review."

Gustave Flaubert...

Writing is a dog's life,
but the only life
worth living.
