A writer reports on the universe. When he presents his credentials, the gates of heaven and hell are equally opened to him. He can hear the devil’s defense and god’s accusations. The guards at the king’s heart let him in. The writer can be anything and any one he wants. When he writes he is a god, he creates.
I never had any doubts about my abilities. I knew I could write. I just had to figure out how to eat while doing this. [Cormac McCarthy's Venomous Fiction, New York Times, April 19, 1992]
Writing is the knitting of the soul
Greatness is not measured by the acts that are seen Rather the many selfless acts done unnoticed A ripple which causes the Tidal Waves of Change

I used to be afraid about what people might say or think after reading what I had written. I am not afraid anymore, because when I write, I am not trying to prove anything to anyone, I am just expressing myself and my opinions. It’s ok if my opinions are different from those of the reader, each of us can have his own opinions. So writing is like talking, if you are afraid of writing, you may end up being afraid of talking
The power of a writer is that he is a god of sorts. He can create his own worlds and populate them with his own people, all by the powers of his imagination. It's the closest a man can come close to the gods. No wonder the most successful writers are considered immortals
Many writers write because they’ve been there, seen that, did it and burnt their fingers
Don't believe in everything that is written. Not everything that is written is true
If I can write, who possibly can’t. Even drawing a line in the sand is writing
Good fiction writers have an instinctive understanding of human nature. That's what makes stories and characters captivating. Good spiritual writers share what they sincerely practice themselves.
It isn't the subjects we write about but the seriousness and subtlety of our expression that determines the worth of or effort.
All I hope to say in books, all that I ever hope to say, is that I love the world.
I AM crazy and bold enough to think that I CAN change the world.
Don’t be too ashamed or afraid
Oh, come on. Since when have the Fates granted anyone anything when they are stressing out about it?
Just let it go, Please don't come back. Who? Devils of Mind!
The Most beautiful thing is to see a person you love smiling. And even more beautiful is knowing that you are the reason behind it.
