Day 09: E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster
"We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us."

Tips from Forster

  • Creative writers are always greater than the causes that they represent
  • Suspense: the only literary tool that has any effect upon tyrants and savages
  • Most quarrels are inevitable and the time; incredible afterwards
  • I have always found writing pleasant and don't understand what people mean by 'throes of creation.'
  • Think before you speak is criticism's motto; speak before you think, creation's.
  • Nonsense and beauty have close connections
