roadblocks, inspirations, muses

"There's more opportunities for crossovers. Getting diverse points of views is helpful, and no two people break into the business the same way. Write one night, take the other night off. Allow yourself recreation and fun. As long as you always come back to writing." -Terry Black

"Try to look through the eyes of a 4-year-old or a 5-year-old." -Rhondi Salsitz

"We like nothing better than to talk about that world that lives in us." -Louella Nelson


Next quotesEdit

Okay, if this quote thing really happens, (As in "isn't summarily deleted") I know a good one:
"f you wou'd not be forgotten
As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worth reading,
Or do things worth the writing."
-- Benjamin Franklin

Well, if we can use "in-universe" quotes, there are some good ones at the beginning of each chapter in Nonimportant's own Chronicles of Kings and Knights :o)

In-universe quotes sound good. How about we start one those one day? F.<話して~!!>22:41, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Hmm...hadn't seen this. If you want it, put some good ones in this page. --Nonimportant 17:51, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Stealing from Wikiquote I got these:

  • Dune by Frank Herbert;
    • "The mystery of life isn't a problem to solve, but a reality to experience."
  • V for Vendetta;
    • "People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people."
  • Lewis Carroll's poem Jabberwocky;
    • "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
      Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
      The frumious Bandersnatch!
  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland;
    • "So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible."

*Don Quixote;

    • "Didn't I tell you, Don Quixote, sir, to turn back, for they were not armies you were going to attack, but flocks of sheep?"
  • Gandhi;
    • "You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result."
    • "Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it."
  • Érico Veríssimo;
    • "Since when, adult, I started to write novels, it has cheered me on the idea that the least a writer can do, in a time full of atrocities and injustices like ours, is to light his lamp, give light over the reality of his world, impede that over it falls darkness, propitious to the thieves, to the murderers, to the tyrants. Yes, to hold a lamp, no matter the nausea and the horror. If we don't have an electrical lamp, let us light our candle stubs or, in last case, let us light matches repeatedly, as sign that we did not desert our post."
  • Mário de Andrade;
    • "When I feel the lyrical impulse I write without thinking what my unconscious yells at me. I think later: not only to correct myself, but to justify what I wrote. Thus is the reason of this Most Interesting Preface." (Paulicéia Desvairada)
  • Fernando Pessoa;
    • "The poet is a feigner

He feigns so completely
That he even feigns it's pain
The pain he truly feels."

  • David Lodge
    • Literature is mostly about having sex and not much about having children. Life is the other way round -(The British Museum is Falling Down)

"The Enemies Gate is down."-Ender Wiggen from "Enders Game" by Orson Scott Card. User Note: Even if it doesnt mean much its possibly the greatest quote ever.SilverSword 16:21, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

A society that gets rid of all its troublemakers goes downhill.--Robert A HeinleinUser:Serprex 00:20, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
