Literary Quotes

"An artist cannot translate the passionate intensity of life without working in passion. Scholar’s scholar, critic's critic, but the artist burns and beats and blows and jumps and rushes. It's all a matter of virtue, i.e virtuosity"-Jack Kerouac.

"But I'll add, that there is something at the bottom of every new human thought, every thought of genius, or even every earnest thought that springs up in any brain, which can never be communicated to others, even if one were to write volumes about it and were explaining one's idea for thirty-five years; there's something left which cannot be induced to emerge from your brain, and remains with you forever; and with it you will die, without communicating to anyone perhaps the most important of your ideas." -"The Idiot" Dosteovesky.
(Stolen from Noor's review :D )

"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." -Sylvia Plath
