Text Quotes
I think book clubs should read more contemporary poetry  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) For me, that’s always been one of the great charms of the first person: we gain access to a very personal, private kind of music.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) My writing day follows my family’s day. I get a good few hours in the mornings when the kids are out of the house. And I don’t work at night any more. I like to see my family.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) What’s fun about a dystopian novel is that we can enjoy and be entertained. But that world is only slightly different, right? It’s familiar enough to be recognizable, and skewed enough to give us pause.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) After college, I was living in New York and wrote furiously, a huge novel that I knew was a failure. I hoped that the book would work, but to be honest, I think I knew it would never work, even as I was finishing it.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) I don’t feel uncomfortable in America, but every once in a while, I’m reminded that people don’t see me the way I see me. It doesn’t change my life, but it gives me a consciousness about it.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) What if loving something means you should mostly feel frustrated and thwarted? And then a little ruined, too, by the pursuit? But you keep coming back for more?  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) It’s not that I don’t enjoy other people, but what I find with writers is this back and forth. And also, there’s no need to talk about work.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) Part of writing a novel is being willing to leap into the blackness. You have very little idea, really, of what’s going to happen. You have a broad sense, maybe, but it’s this rash leap.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) I remember when I was in art classes, I hated following the assignments. And I would get in trouble for doing something totally different or taking it in a weird direction.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) I don’t believe complete assimilation is possible, at least not for anyone who has an active, open mind. Every step, every entry into the flows of existence can be seen as a beginning, a commencement of a brand new way of seeing oneself in the world. This is the case for everyone.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) In my teaching, I try to expose my students to the widest range of aesthetic possibilities, so I’ll offer them stories from Anton Chekhov to Denis Johnson, from Flannery O’Connor to A.M. Homes, and perhaps investigating all that strange variation of beauty has rubbed off on me. Or perhaps that’s why I enjoy teaching literature.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes) I write on a computer. On breaks, I’ll make myself green tea. I don’t want something too caffeinated. I guess I don’t believe in chemical enhancement of my writing. Just slight, but nothing crazy.  (Chang-Rae Lee Quotes)
