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).

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.

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

Imitation may be the “sincerest form of plagiarism,” but it is also the mark of an inferior person.
