1. "They say that girls are the ones who want fairy tail endings, but then again, who are the authors of fairy tales? mostly men..."
Author: Alina Radoi
2. "Blessed," he says, "are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God" (Mt 5:9). Consider carefully that it is not the people who call for peace but those who make peace who are commended. For there are those who talk but do nothing (Mt 23:3). For just as it is not the hearers of the law but the doers who are righteous (Rom 2:13), so it is not those who preach peace but the authors of peace who are blessed."
Author: Bernard Of Clairvaux
3. "Writing a complete novel is time consuming, frustrating, nerve wrecking, and most of the time your work is under valued, under appreciated, and taken for granted. So why do authors do it? Because not writing at all, feels far worse."
Author: Carl Henegan
4. "I owe all my originality, such as it is, to my determination not to be a literary man. Instead of belonging to a literary club I belong to a municipal council. Instead of drinking and discussing authors and reviews, I sit on committees with capable practical greengrocers and bootmakers... Keep away from books and from men who get their ideas from books, and your own books will always be fresh."
Author: George Bernard Shaw
5. "Even the contemporary horror authors who have seriously influenced me are a disparate bunch."
Author: George Stephen

Author: Hilary Duff
8. "There's a Good Book about goodness and how to be good and so forth, but there's no Evil Book about how to be evil and how to be bad. The Devil had no prophets to write his Ten Commandments, and no team of authors to write his biography. His case has gone completely by default. We know nothing about him but a lot of fairy stories from our parents and schoolmasters. He has no book from which we can learn the nature of evil in all its forms, with parables about evil people, proverbs about evil people, folklore about evil people. All we have is the living example of people who are least good, or our own intuition."
Author: Ian Fleming
9. "People can't read a book if they don't know it exists. All authors need to do marketing, regardless of how they published."
Author: Jo Linsdell

Author: John Turturro
11. "Like Tom Sawyer whitewashing the fence, authors trick readers into doing most of the imaginative work."
Author: Jonathan Gottschall
12. "The Avalanche," peacemaker Rachel recites, "is very important. It's a privilege to sing it. It's a celebration of our past." Everybody around the table smiles at her."Yeah? Well, I've seen how easily the past can get rewritten." I glare at Mr. Oamaru. "Lyrics change. New authors come along."
Author: Karen Russell
13. "I would give them (aspiring writers) the oldest advice in the craft: Read and write. Read a lot. Read new authors and established ones, read people whose work is in the same vein as yours and those whose genre is totally different. You've heard of chain-smokers. Writers, especially beginners, need to be chain-readers. And lastly, write every day. Write about things that get under your skin and keep you up at night."
Author: Khaled Hosseini
14. "To refer even in passing to unpublished or struggling authors and their problems is to put oneself at some risk, so I will say here and now that any unsolicited manuscripts or typescripts sent to me will be destroyed unread. You must make your way yourself. Why you should be so set on the nearly always disappointing profession is a puzzling question."
Author: Kingsley Amis
15. "I think authors can get into trouble viewing the subject matter as their turf."
Author: Laura Hillenbrand
16. "I'm not a stranger," I said, and pointed to his book. "I'm someone who reads the same authors you do."
Author: Lemony Snicket

Author: Louis Sachar
18. "All writers and their readers should stand up and voice their opposition to financial services companies censoring books. Authors should have the freedom to publish legal fiction, and readers should have the freedom to read what they want."
Author: Mark Coker
19. "Many contemporary authors drink more than they write."
Author: Maxim Gorky
20. "People who make snide comments to authors like "anyone can write a book" or "well, you did it, so obviously I can/it can't be that hard" or poke at a book because it's "romance" or "genre fiction" and act like that somehow makes it substandard because they don't read it... well, ok, go ahead. Write a bestseller. Don't forget to go through the correct edit process. We'll wait."
Author: Michelle M. Pillow
21. "Humans are storytellers. It is our nature to make up stories, to interpret everything we perceive. Without awareness, we give our personal power to the story and the story writes itself. With awareness, we recover the control of our story. We see we are the authors and if we don't like our story, we change it."
Author: Miguel Ruiz
22. "It is illuminating to note, here, how the daily rituals and working routines of prolific authors and artists – people who really do get a lot done – very rarely include techniques for ‘getting motivated' or ‘feeling inspired'. Quite the opposite: they tend to emphasise the mechanics of the working process, focusing not on generating the right mood, but on accomplishing certain physical actions, regardless of mood."
Author: Oliver Burkeman
23. "Also, there are authors and publicists using the Internet to manipulate opinion, both positively for a work and negatively against the competition. I don't do this and can't stomach it, honestly."
Author: R. A. Salvatore
24. "There was also a daughter, very short, very plump, very gay, an amazing production for the Gregorievitches. It was as if two very serious authors had set out to collaborate and then had published a limerick."
Author: Rebecca West
25. "Not a good book. It attempts to take a complex subject and make it assessable to the layman with cartoons, and in this effort it fails. Moreover, the authors often take biased stances, and while I agree with them for the most part it nonetheless detracts from any scholarly offerings in which they wish to partake."
Author: Richard Appignanesi
26. "Good authors mature over time: it does take awhile. Travel abroad and learn to live in other cultures. That's one of the things about teaching abroad."
Author: Richard K. Morgan
27. "Pearl introduces an original story, in a form which was to become one of the most frequent in mediaeval literature, the dream-vision. Authors like Chaucer and Langland use this form, in which the narrator describes another world - usually a heavenly paradise - which is compared with the earthly human world. In Pearl, the narrator sees his daughter who died in infancy, 'the ground of all my bliss'. She now has a kind of perfect knowledge, which her father can never comprehend. The whole poem underlines the divide between human comprehension and perfection; these lines show the gap between possible perfection and fallen humanity which, thematically, anticipate many literary examinations of man's fall, the most well known being Milton's late Renaissance epic, Paradise Lost."
Author: Ronald Carter
28. "When male authors write love stories, the heroine tends to end up dead."
Author: Susan Elizabeth Phillips
29. "Trippers and askers surround me,People I meet.... the effect upon me of my early life..... of the ward and city I live in....of the nation,The latest news....discoveries, inventions, societies.... authors old and new,My dinner, dress, associates, looks, business, compliments, dues,The real or fancified indifference of some man or woman I love,The sickness of one of my folks- or of myself....or ill-doing....or loss or lack of money....or depressions or exaltations,They come to me days and nights and go from me again,But they are not the Me myself."
Author: Walt Whitman

All I know is that these two gases both had a quite extraordinary effect, and that there was no respirator, and no protection against them that we knew of. So the soldiers would have been unable to protect themselves against this gas in any way."
