Favorite Ghost Writers Quotes

1. "To become a writer a person must read constantly, the more varied the writers and their material then all the better. One must also have a lot of life experience, travel to exotic locations and live among the local people. Yet most importantly a writer needs the determination to keep at their writing regardless of what others might say or think about it"
Author: Andrew James Pritchard
2. "Writers are such phonies: they sometimes have wise insights but they don't live by them at all. That's what writers are like...you think they know something, but usually they are just messes."
Author: Anne Sexton
3. "The humor is essentially dark for a cartoon and sophisticated. But at the same time, being a cartoon gives the writers more freedom than in a normal sitcom. It always pushes the line that, despite human failings, the Simpsons are really decent people."
Author: Dan Castellaneta
4. "Under fun's new administration, writing fiction becomes a way to go deep inside yourself and illuminate precisely the stuff you don't want to see or let anyone else see, and this stuff usually turns out (paradoxically) to be precisely the stuff all writers and readers share and respond to, feel. Fiction becomes a weird way to countenance yourself and to tell the truth instead of being a way to escape yourself or to present yourself in a way you figure you will be maximally likable. This process is complicated and confusing and scary, and also hard work, but it turns out to be the best fun there is.The fact that you can now sustain the fun of writing only by confronting the very same unfun parts of yourself you'd first used writing to avoid or disguise is another paradox, but this one isn't any kind of bind at all. What it is is a gift, a kind of miracle, and compared to it the reward of strangers' affection is as dust, lint."
Author: David Foster Wallace
5. "I have no ghost writers. I personally write every message and every piece of published mail."
Author: David Wilkerson
6. "There is an audience for everything; our job as writers is to do the work and provide readers with a choice."
Author: Elizabeth Hernandez
7. "I waved my hand in front of my face, obi-wan style. "I am not here." Niall's mucas glands kicked into overdrive. "Eoin's dead! And his ghost is standing right there on the grass!" Donal let out a long suffering sigh. "Eoin is being a writer." Niall calmed down, becuase everyone knows writers are weird and are always doing stupid thingss."
Author: Eoin Colfer
8. "If dat ghost have money, I tells him never to haunt you less'n he wants to lose it!"
Author: Eugene O'Neill
9. "But the recurrent ambiguity of the American tale of the supernatural reveals both a fascination with the possibility of numinous experience and a perplexity about whether there was, in fact, anything numinous to be experienced. Writers often delighted in leading readers into, but not out of, the haunted dusk of the borderland."
Author: Howard Kerr
10. "I'm just a ghost in your eyes, for I was just a shadow following you."
Author: Ishmael Balfour
11. "Not being published would be great. When I say that to other writers they look at me as if I'm totally insane."
Author: Kate Atkinson
12. "I love the writers of my thousand books. It pleases me to think how astonished old Homer, whoever he was, would be to find his epics on the shelf of such an unimaginable being as myself, in the middle of an unrumored continent. I love the large minority of the writers on my shelves who have struggled with words and thoughts and, by my lights, have lost the struggle. All together they are my community, the creators of the very idea of books, poetry, and extended narratives, and of the amazing human conversation that has taken place across the millennia, through weal and woe, over the heads of interest and utility."
Author: Marilynne Robinson
13. "Overspecialize, and you breed in weakness. - Makoto Kuzanagi, Ghost in the shell"
Author: Masamune Shirow

Author: Nicholson Baker

Author: Rick Riordan
16. "The gift of the Holy Ghost is a gift of power. The Holy Ghost inspires and heals, guides and warns, enhances our natural capacities, inspires charity and humility, makes us smarter than we are, strengthens us during trials, testifies of the Father and the Son, and shows us "all things" that we should do. He helps us do more and become more than we could ever do or become on our own."
Author: Sheri L. Dew
17. "The hunger for knowing is what excites me. I get to geek out about editing, be on set, give notes to writers - I love it all."
Author: Sue Naegle
18. "Don't be afraid to write. I think a lot of writers of all ages have a fear that they aren't any good at writing. That fear is normal. I feel it. Most writers who care about what they are writing feel it. When you feel like you're not good enough, write anyway. It's just a pesky bug that's whispering lies. The best way to swat the bug is with your pen."
Author: Tanya Anderson
19. "He'd heard that writers spent all day in their dressing gowns drinking champagne. This is, of course, absolutely true."
Author: Terry Pratchett
