Five Great Quotations about Publishing

“I think I am starving for publication: I love to get published; it maddens me not to get published. I feel at times like getting every publisher in the world by the scruff of the neck, forcing his jaws open, and cramming the Mss down his throat – ‘God-damn you, here it is – I will and must be published.’”- Tom Wolfe

“The long-lived books of tomorrow are concealed somewhere amongst the so-far unpublished MSS of today.” – Philip Unwin

“Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.” – Cyril Connolly

“I wanted to make money writing because I liked to drink at night and I didn’t like to get up in the morning.” – Charles Bukowski

“Though an angel should write, still ’tis devils must print.” – Thomas Moore
