I hate all politics. I don’t like either political party. One should not belong to them – one should be an individual standing in the middle. Anyone that belongs to a party stops thinking.
Everything is generated through your own will power.
Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion I spent the rest of the day putting the pieces together.
Love is easy and I love writing. You can’t resist love. You get an idea someone says something and you’re in love.
Love is the answer to everything. It’s the only reason to do anything. If you don’t write stories you love you’ll never make it. If you don’t write stories that other people love you’ll never make it.
Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love something to live for.
I’m not in control of my muse. My muse does all the work.
You don’t have to turn on the TV set. You don’t have to work on the Internet. It’s up to you.
If we listened to our intellect we’d never have a love affair. We’d never have a friendship. We’d never go into business because we’d be cynical. Well that’s nonsense. You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.
My business is to prevent the future.
If God treats you well by teaching you a disastrous lesson you never forget it.
My religion encompasses all religions. I believe in God I believe in the universe. I believe you are god I believe I am god I believe the earth is god and the universe is god. We’re all god.
I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library and it’s better than college. People should educate themselves – you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years I had read every book in the library and I’d written a thousand stories.
If you know how to read you have a complete education about life then you know how to vote within a democracy. But if you don’t know how to read you don’t know how to decide. That’s the great thing about our country – we’re a democracy of readers and we should keep it that way.
I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good you have to practice practice practice. If you don’t love something then don’t do it.
It’s not going to do any good to land on Mars if we’re stupid.
I don’t try to describe the future. I try to prevent it.
Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future.
