― Ray BradburyZen in the Art of Writing

“Writing is the great invention of the world.” 
― Abraham LincolnDiscoveries and Inventions: A Lecture by Abraham Lincoln Delivered in 1860

"It is easy to lose sight of the fact that writers do not write to impart knowledge to others; rather, they write to inform themselves."
--Judith Guest, Foreward to Writing Down the Bones

"I write because there are stories that people have forgotten to tell, because I am a woman trying to stand up in my life."
--Natalie Golberg, Writing Down the Bones
