Chuck on writing

“The three big ones — it’s gotta be interesting, it’s gotta be entertaining and it’s gotta be clear. So I just think to myself if I can’t find something interesting, at least I can do the other two. Because if you do all three it’s great. If you do two it’s good and if you do one you can I guess keep working.” — Chuck Klosterman

(Thanks, Chad)

yes we shall

“Shall we make a new rule of life from tonight: always try to be a little kinder than is necessary?”
― J.M. Barrie (author of Peter Pan)

Kurt Vonnegut on creating

“Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.” —Kurt Vonnegut
