11 of your most favorite quotes (on writing, creativity and poetry) – all in one place


You have to let people see what you wrote. It will never be perfect, but perfect is overrated.

Tina Fey


In the process of writing, your energy gradually begins appearing in every line; eventually lines don’t resemble anyone else’s because they are all composed of your energy.

Robert Bly


Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.

Leonard Cohen


We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own and other people’s models, learn to be ourselves and allow our natural channel to open.

Shakti Gawain


Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.

Franz Kafka


What is to give light must endure burning.

Viktor Frankl


The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.

Auguste Rodin


A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by desire to beat others.

Ayn Rand


Once, poets were magicians. Poets were strong, stronger than warriors or kings – stronger than old hapless Gods. And they will be strong again.

Greg Bear


Be brave to life life creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by quite not knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful: Yourself.

Alan Alda


Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It’s the one and only thing you have to offer.

Barbara Kingsolver
