Writing related quotes

Please post your writing/author related quotes here. I'm often inspired or given insight by something another writer has said about writing. I just saw this one on goodreads:

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.
- Haruki Murakami

another one I love is:

It is difficult to get the news from poems, yet men die miserably everyday for lack of what is found there.
- William Carlos Williams

"From my close observation of writers... they fall into two groups: 1) those who bleed copiously and visibly at any bad review, and 2) those who bleed copiously and secretly at any bad review."
--Issac Asimov

"The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use them."
--Phillip K. Dick

"If you want your writing to be taken seriously, don't marry and have kids, and above all, don't die. But if you have to die, commit suicide. They approve of that."
--Ursula Le Guin

One should be able to return to the first sentence of a novel and find the resonances of the entire work.-Gloria Naylor
