Curation Corner: Bradbury, Goldberg, and Faulkner quotes

From the ‘Do as I share, not as I do’ department:

writers quotes wisdom Bradbury 2

When you write – explode – fly apart – disintegrate! Then give time enough to think, cut, rework, and rewrite.

RAY BRADBURY

From the ‘Cripes, I hate it when people make me feel responsible for my own life’ department…
Sometimes people say to me, “I want to write, but I have five kids, a full-time job, a wife who beats me, a tremendous debt to my parents,” and so on.

I say to them, “There is no excuse. If you want to write, write. This is your life. You are responsible for it. You will not live forever. Don’t wait. Make the time now, even if it is ten minutes once a week.’

NATALIE GOLDBERG

From the ‘Benefits of setting the bar low’ department: 

Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.

WILLIAM FAULKNER
