A mediocre mind thinks it writes divinely; a good mind thinks it writes reasonably.
Jean de la Bruyere
At the age when Bengali youth almost inevitably writes poetry, I was listening to European classical music.
I'm not a person who writes really abstract things with oblique references. I look at abstraction like I look at condiments. Give me some Tabasco sauce, some ketchup, some mayonnaise. I love all of that. Put it on a trumpet. I've just got to have the ketchup and Tabasco sauce. That's my attitude about musical philosophy.
I'm not a writer who teaches. I'm a teacher who writes.

George Bernard Shaw
If a man writes a book, let him set down only what he knows. I have guesses enough of my own.

An author writes a book, and that's the book at that point. And if the author writes the book again, then somehow something has gone wrong, if you see what I mean.
Every person who speaks or writes for the public will make an occasional faux pas, and sooner or later will write or say something inappropriate.
I've always considered myself a filmmaker who writes stuff for himself to do.
All tweets are tasty. Any tweet anybody writes is tasty. So, I try to have each tweet not simply be informative, but have some outlook, some perspective that you might not otherwise had.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
The first author I remember being obsessed by, actually realizing 'I like the way he writes and I like the way he tells stories,' was C.S. Lewis and the 'Narnia' books.

Proust writes, he remembers, physically. He depends on his body to give him the information that will bring him to the past. His book is called 'In Search of Lost Time,' and he does it through the senses. He does it through smell. He does it through feeling. He does it through texture. It is all physically driven, that language.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
