Favorite Stanley Yelnats Quotes

1. "Why did so many teenagers fall for Stanley Horowitz's tricks?""These were impressionable teenagers," Nick explained. "Many of them were devoted fans of romantic Vampyre stories. They over-romanticized what it means to be a Vampyre, and that gave Stanley a way to manipulate them.""I've read Twilight," Tamara said. "My daughter is a huge fan. Is she in any danger?""The danger arises from wanting to belong to the in crowd so badly, you lose sight of what's real and what's fantasy.""Surely today's teenagers know that vampires are fantasy," Tamara said."Possibly. But remember, Vampyres are not romantic. Vampyres are dead. They are walking reminders of tragedy. Loving one is necrophilia. And wanting to be one is the first step on the road to catastrophe."

Jane smiled at the telephone and gave a sigh of happiness"

Capitalize on them. ``The connection between personal obsession and the work you do is the most important thing.''-- Be yourself. ``Singularity is what you need.''-- Avoid self-censorship: ``We are very self-critical in a way that can be very destructive. In our culture there are voices in our head which have taught us to say, `Oh, I wouldn't do that if I were you.' Don't ever think about anybody peering over your shoulder.''-- Don't be afraid to show off, even if you think, ``I'm very close to making a complete fool of myself.''-- Don't be afraid to entertain. ``I want to entertain. I don't want to lose people. I feel responsible as I write to give people the best time I can.''-- ``Love your failures'' instead of beating yourself up over them.-- ``Learn to love the process'' of writing.-- Just do it.
