Sometimes, the best form of expressing an idea or communicating an intention and even giving advice could be through the adoption of quotations. The great physicist, Albert Einstein, employed this form of writing severally in his life time where he even described some of his scientific breakthroughs in quotes. The following are some of the famous quotes describing the world of literature, hilariously expressed but with deeper meanings if you can go past the humour: "A writer has nothing to say after the age of forty. If he's clever enough he knows how to disguise that fact." Georges Simenon "Writers should be read, but neither seen nor heard." Daphne du Maurier "Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers." T S Eliot "I like thin books because they balance tables, leather volumes because they can strop razors, and heavy books because they can be thrown at the cat." Mark Twain "A bad review is even less important than whether it's raining in Patagonia." Iris Murdoch "The secret to writing is to go through your stuff until you come on something you think is particularly good, and then cut it out." P G Wodehouse "Having been unpopular in high school is not just cause for book publication." Fran Lebowitz "For a man to be a poet, he must be either in love or miserable." Lord Byron "Writing would be a wonderful occupation except for the paperwork." Peter de Vries "The best impromptu speeches are the ones written well in advance." Ruth Gordon "The possession of a book often becomes a substitute for not reading it." Anthony Burgess "You can start changing the world with a pen and the back of a bus ticket."
