My FAVORITE Writing Quotes

As we wrap up January (wow that feels weird to type) I wanted to share a collection of my favorite quotes about writing and art in general.


“They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those dream only by night.” – Edgar Allan Poe

“If you don’t see the book you want on the shelf, write it.” Beverly Cleary

“I am a part of everything that I have read.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“I think new writers are too worried that is has all been said before. Sure it has, but not by you.” -Asha Dornfest

“I have lived a thousand lives and I have loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read.” -George R.R Martin

“A pen is to me as a beak is to a hen”. J.R.R Tolkien

“First, I do not sit down at my desk to put into verse something that is already clear in my mind. If it were clear in my mind, I should have no incentive or need to write about it. We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand.” – C.S Lewis

“The world does not need more Christian literature. What it needs is more Christians writing good literature.” C.S Lewis
