“Whenever my environment had failed to support or nourish me, I had clutched at books…”

“Reading was like a drug, a dope. The novels created moods in which I lived for days.”

“The more closely the author thinks of why he wrote, the more he comes to regard his imagination as a kind of self-generating cement which glued his facts together, and his emotions as a kind of dark and obscure designer of those facts. Reluctantly, he comes to the conclusion that to account for his book is to account for his life.”

All of the above quotes by Richard Wright.

  1. That last quote is a real gut check. I love the words and the idea that we as writers use ourselves to infuse life into our words. Wow! ❤
