Favorite Anton Chekhov Quotes

1. "My favorite author is Anton Chekhov, not so much for the plays but for his short stories, and I think he was really my tutor."
Author: Gene Wilder
2. "One more nice thing about short stories is that you can create a story out of the smallest details -an idea that springs up in your mind, a word, an image, whatever. In most cases it's like jazz improvisation, with the story taking me where it wants to. And another good point is that with short stories you don't have to worry about failing. If the idea doesn't work out the way you hoped it would, you just shrug your shoulders and tell yourself that they can't all be winners. Even with masters of the genre like F. Scott Fitzgerald and Raymond Carver -even Anton Chekhov- not every short story is a masterpiece. I find this a great comfort. You can learn from your mistakes (in other words, those you can't call complete success) and use that in the next story you write."
Author: Haruki Murakami
3. "[The Writer silently passes her a pint bottle of whiskey.] Thank you, Mr.--?WRITER: Chekhov! Anton Pavlovitch Chekhov!MRS HARDWICKE-MOORE [smiling with the remnants of coquetry]: Thank you, Mr.--Chekhov."
Author: Tennessee Williams
