“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.” —Ernest Hemingway

Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.

Mark Twain

All good books have one thing in common – they are truer than if they had really happened.

Ernest Hemingway

Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.

Mark Twain

Once writing has become your major vice and greatest pleasure, only death can stop it.

Ernest Hemingway

I rewrote the ending to ‘Farewell to Arms,’ the last page of it, thirty-nine times before I was satisfied.

Ernest Hemingway

Write what you know.

Mark Twain

Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.

Mark Twain

There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.

Ernest Hemingway
