Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.

Gustave Flaubert/Quotes
To be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost.
Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.
There is no truth. There is only perception.
Human speech is like a cracked kettle on which we tap crude rhythms for bears to dance to, while we long to make music that will melt the stars.
Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.
The whole dream of democracy is to raise the proletarian to the level of stupidity attained by the bourgeois.
You can calculate the worth of a man by the number of his enemies, and the importance of a work of art by the harm that is spoken of it.
The artist must be in his work as God is in creation, invisible and all-powerful; one must sense him everywhere but never see him.
Our ignorance of history causes us to slander our own times.
The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.
