I am not a writer with a drinking problem, I am a drinker with a writing problem.
Writing is the art of applying the ass to the seat.
It’s not the tragedies that kill us; it’s the messes.
If you’re going to write, don’t pretend to write down. It’s going to be the best you can do, and it’s the fact that it’s the best you can do that kills you.
This wasn’t just plain terrible, this was fancy terrible. This was terrible with raisins in it.
Dorothy Parker, poetă și prozatoare americană.
