Read through the most famous quotes by topic #authorship




The birth of a true poet is neither an insignificant event nor an easy delivery.

Creative work is often driven by pain. It may be that if you don't have something in the back of your head driving you nuts, you may not do anything. It's not a good arrangement. If I were God, I wouldn't have done it that way. [Interview, The Wall Street Journal, Nov. 20, 2009]


Cormac McCarthy
