Engrave this Quote By its very nature, the novel indicates that we are becoming. There is no final solution. There is no last word.

Engrave this Quote The style of an author should be the image of his mind, but the choice and command of language is the fruit of exercise.

-Edward Gibbon
Engrave this Quote It has always been my practice to cast a long paragraph in a single mould, to try it by my ear, to deposit it in my memory, but to suspend the action of the pen till I had given the last polish to my work.

Engrave this Quote Great authors are admirable in this respect: in every generation they make for disagreement. Through them we become aware of our differences.

Engrave this Quote Before I explain my book to others, I expect them to explain it to me. To claim to explain it first is to immediately narrow down its reach; for if we know what we intended to say, we do not know whether we said only that. - One always says more than THAT. - And what interests me most is what I put in without knowing, - that unconscious share, which I would like to call God's share.

Engrave this Quote All these books have lived together ... inside my mind. They follow one another only on paper and because of an utter impossibility to let themselves be all written at the same time. Whatever book I write, I never devote myself to it completely, and the matter which most insistently requires me soon later develops, however, at the other end of me.

Engrave this Quote A creation of importance can only be produced when its author isolates himself, it is a child of solitude.

Engrave this Quote The writer probably knows what he meant when he wrote a book, but he should immediately forget what he meant when he's written it.

Engrave this Quote Novelists do not write as birds sing, by the push of nature. It is part of the job that there should be much routine and some daily stuff on the level of carpentry.

Rough Magic Lecture, February 16, 1977
Engrave this Quote A writer should be a joyous optimist. Anything that implies rejection of life is wrong for a writer.

Engrave this Quote I don't regard Brecht as a man of iron-gray purpose and intellect, I think he is a theatrical whore of the first quality.

Engrave this Quote Whatever an author puts between the two covers of his book is public property; whatever of himself he does not put there is his private property, as much as if he had never written a word.

Engrave this Quote The role of the writer is not simply to arrange Being according to his own lights; he must also serve as a medium to Being and remain open to its often unfathomable dictates. This is the only way the work can transcend its creator and radiate its meaning.

Disturbing the Peace, ch. 2 (1986; tr. 1990)
Engrave this Quote It was a folly, with the materiality of this daily life pressing so intrusively upon me, to attempt to fling myself back into another age; or to insist on creating a semblance of a world out of airy matter . . . This wiser effort would have been, to diffuse thought and imagination through the opaque substance of to-day, and thus make it a bright transparency . . . to seek resolutely the true and indestructible value that lay hidden in the petty and wearisome incidents and ordinary characters with which I was now conversant. The fault was mine. The page of life that was spread out before me was dull and commonplace, only because I had not fathomed its deeper import. A better book than I shall ever write was there . . . These perceptions came too late . . . I had ceased to be a writer of tolerably poor tales and essays, and had become a tolerably good Surveyor of the Customs. That was all.
