"Now, the value of an idea has nothing whatsoever to do with the sincerity of the man who expresses it. Indeed, the probabilities are that the more insincere the man is, the more purely intellectual will the idea be, as in that case it will not be coloured by either his wants, his desires, or his prejudices."
— Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray (via trustthewolves)

"This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important."

Gary Provost (via qmsd)

This might be my favourite quote on writing ever.

"This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper."
— “The Hollow Men” by T.S. Eliot (via innovatus-et-felicem)

"You don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say."
— F. Scott Fitzgerald

"A man is what he thinks about all day long."
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Books can only reveal us to ourselves, and as often as they do us this service we lay them aside."
— Henry David Thoreau

"If I read a book that impresses me, I have to take myself firmly by the hand, before I mix with other people; otherwise they would think my mind rather queer."
— Anne Frank, The Diary of Anne Frank
