Vladimir Nabokov: Writing

“The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible.”

—Vladimir Nabokov, novelist (1899-1977).

Anne Rice: Words

I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them.

Bernard Iddings Bell: To love

Love Truly Romance

“To love is not a passive thing. To love is active voice. When I love I do something, I function, I give. I do not love in order that I may be loved back again, but for the creative joy of loving. And every time I do so love I am freed, at least a little, by the outgoing of love, from enslavement to that most intolerable of master, myself.”
—Bernard Iddings Bell
