quotes

  • ❝ go all the way with it. do not back off. for once, go all the goddamn way with what matters. ❞
    • ernest hemingway
  • ❝ whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. begin it now. ❞
    • william h. murray
  • ❝ i want to say something about bad writing. i’m proud of my bad writing. everyone is so intelligent lately, and stylish. fucking great. i am proud of philip guston’s bad painting, i am proud of baudelaire’s mamma’s boy goo goo misery. sometimes the lurid or shitty means having a heart, which’s something you have to try to have. excellence nowadays is too general and available to be worth prizing: i am interested in people who have to find strange and horrible ways to just get from point A to point B. ❞
    • ariana reines
  • ❝ someone said to me, early on in film school... if you can photograph the human face you can photograph anything, because that is the most difficult and most interesting thing to photograph. if you can light and photograph the human face to bring out what’s within that human face, you can do anything. ❞
    • roger deakins
  • ❝ the poem inside is perfect; i have a very clumsy retrieval process for getting it out. ❞ — carolyn kizer
  • ❝ even if you have nothing to write, write and say so. ❞
    • marcus tullius cicero
  • ❝ i don’t really decide what the core of the story is before i write. i write to figure out what the story is. and i think the characters end up talking to you and telling you what they want to be doing and what is important to them. so in some ways, your job is to listen as much as it is to write. and to listen to what it is these characters that are coming through you are telling you. ❞
