“Memory believes before knowing remembers. Believes longer than recollects, longer than knowing even wonders.”
“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”
“When the going gets weird, the weird turn professional.”
