  • “When you read excellent poetry, you see how precise language can be; you see words being used with great respect. I think that’s a very, healthy influence on a novelist.” –William Boyd

  • Here is a quote from Will Smith of all people:

    “You don’t try to build a well, you don’t set out to build a wall, you don’t say I am going to build the biggest baddest wall that has ever been built, you don’t start there, you say I am going to lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid and you do that ever single day until you have a wall.”

  • This is one of my favorites….From “The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde:

    “How sad it is! I shall grow old, and horrible, and dreadful. But this picture will remain always young. It will never be older than this particular day of June… If it were only the other way! If it were I who was to be always young, and the picture that was to grow old! For that-for that-I would give everything! Yes, there is nothing in the whole world I would not give! I would give my soul for that!”
    – Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray Ch. 2″
