You don't write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
A great social success is a pretty girl who plays her cards as carefully as if she were plain.
Life is essentially a cheat and its conditions are those of defeat; the redeeming things are not happiness and pleasure but the deeper satisfactions that come out of struggle.
First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you.
All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath.
Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.
Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over.
Show me a hero and I'll write you a tragedy.
Genius is the ability to put into effect what is on your mind.
Personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures.
