Es gibt Berge fabelhafter Zitate, die sich mit dem Schreiben verbinden lassen oder direkt davon handeln. Hier findet Ihr einige, die mir besonders gefallen haben. Fühlt Euch frei zu ergänzen. :D
Bei manchen spürt man nur, dass man doch nicht allein ist. Andere bleiben einfach inspirierend, egal wie oft man sie hört oder liest. ;)

"Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self."—Colleen Wainwright

If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~ Toni Morrison

"If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad. As to that regular, uninterrupted love of writing...I do not understand it. I feel it as a torture, which I must get rid of, but never as a pleasure. On the contrary, I think composition a great pain." -- Lord Byron

"Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance."
~ Samuel Johnson

"If you are going through hell, keep going."

All writers without exception are scared to death. Some simply hide
it better than others.

I write for the same reason I breathe, because if I didn't, I would die.
Isaac Asimov

As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person. ~ Paul Shane Spear

"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." - Sylvia Plath

Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You're by no means alone on that score, you'll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them - if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry. - Mr Antolini

"An artist's only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else's." - JD Salinger (1919-2010)

“I don't exactly know what i mean by that, but I mean it.” J.D. Salinger

"Being an author is like being in charge of your own personal insane asylum." - Graycie Harmon

Being an author is having angels whisper in your ear - and devils, too.
~ Graycie Harmon

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." - Albert Einstein

"Quantity produces quality. If you write little,
you'll never have quality of idea or quality of
output." - Ray Bradbury

"All writers are vain, selfisch and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness.
One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand." -
George Orwell

"It is impossible to discourage the real writers--they don't give a damn what you say, they're going to write." - Sinclair Lewis

Thought is the wind, knowledge the sail, And mankind the vessel. ~August Hare

"A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket." ~Charles Peguy

Charles Caleb Cotton

'Have something to say, and say it as clearly as you can. That is the only secret.'

Sloan Wilson

'The best style is the style you don't notice.' ~Somerset Maugham

'Writing is a struggle against silence.' ~Carlos Fuentes

'What no wife of a writer can ever understand is that a writer is working when he's staring out of the window.' ~Burton Rascoe

of the writer. In order to succeed, she must be alone,

Wieder versuchen. Wieder scheitern. Besser scheitern."

Das hier sind meine Lieblinge von Twain (die ich auch immer wieder gerne verwende)

Der Unterschied zwischen dem richtigen Wort und dem beinahe richtigen ist derselbe Unterschied wie zwischen dem Blitz und einem Glühwürmchen.

Es bedarf deines Feindes und deines Freundes – in vereinten Werk -, um dich bis ins Mark zu verletzen: Erster verleumdet dich, letzterer überbringt dir die Nachricht.

Es ist ganz leicht, sich das Rauchen abzugewöhnen, ich habe es schon hundert Mal geschafft.

Mark Twain, Erzähler, 1835-1910

:D Ja, den Beckett habe ich mir auch als Leitsatz gewählt. Genial.

Danke für den Twain. Fabelhaft. Da fällt mir auch noch eines von ihm ein:

„Schreiben ist leicht. Man muß nur die falschen Wörter weglassen.“
Mark Twain (1835-1910)

Und das hier fand ich auch gerade:

„Um gut schreiben zu können, muß man etwas Kühleres in den Adern haben als Blut.“
Truman Capote (1924-84), amerik. Schriftsteller

Fies. :mrgreen:
