When people ask me if I have any spare change, I tell them I have it at home in my spare wallet

Inspiration and genius - one and the same

A writer is rarely so well inspired as when he talks about himself

I think and think for months, for years. Ninety-nine times the conclusion is false. The hundredth time I am right

Beware of trying to accomplish anything by force

Praise out of season, or tactlessly bestowed, can freeze the heart as much as blame

What you are must always displease you, if you would attain to that which you are not

One starts an action simply because one must do something

The moment somebody says to me, "This is very risky," is the moment it becomes attractive to me

For every man there exists a bait which he cannot resist swallowing
