I’m a quote lover. I always have been. Long before there were websites chock full of every quote you could imagine, I had books of printed quotes. This love of quotes probably comes from my Dad. He is a university professor and he has posted quotes on printed paper all over his office. He’s done this for years.

Since I love a strong quote and twitter seems to be infatuated with quotes, I want to make this easy for you. If you’re ever looking for a good quote to share about writing but you don’t know what to share, here’s some cool quotes you can share. Just click to tweet them.

    I love all of these quotes, Dan, including several I’d never read before now. During my 31 years as a high school English teacher here in Pittsburgh, I had a poster on my classroom wall with a quote from Justice Louis Brandeis: There is no such thing as good writing, just good rewriting. I always stressed the importance of that to my students as they wrote their compositions for me, and I’ve always kept it in mind in my second career as a writer as I write my mystery novels.

    As always, best of luck!

      That’s a great quote, Bob! I’ve always enjoyed that one. Here’s two other quotes about editing that didn’t make the cut, but that I enjoy:

      It is perfectly okay to write garbage—as long as you edit brilliantly. – C. J. Cherryh

      “Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.” ― T.S. Eliot
