Text Quotes
I’ve always said that I felt women are more heroic  (James Salter Quotes) Love must wait; it must break one’s bones  (James Salter Quotes) Events need their invitation, dissolutions their start  (James Salter Quotes) The death of kings can be recited, but not of one’s child  (James Salter Quotes) I’ve always said that I felt women are more heroic  (James Salter Quotes) Although I’ve made notes for things and even written synopses sitting in trains or on park benches, for the complete composition of things I need absolute solitude, preferably an empty house.  (James Salter Quotes) I find the most difficult part of writing is to get it down initially because what you have written is usually so terrible that it’s disheartening; you don’t want to go on. That’s what I think is hard - the discouragement that comes from seeing what you have done.  (James Salter Quotes) It’s great to listen to men talk about sports or fights or war or even hunting sometimes, but the presence of the other, the presence of art and beauty, which crude masculinity seems to discount, is essential. Real civilization and real manhood seem to me to include those.  (James Salter Quotes) I write in longhand. I am accustomed to that proximity, that feel of writing. Then I sit down and type  (James Salter Quotes) ... She is simply the living portion of the meal  (James Salter Quotes) On the Internet, everyone is writing. There is a great flowering of writing  (James Salter Quotes) In 1957, I decided: write or perish  (James Salter Quotes) Normally, what you’re envious of is a book, not a writer: standards, ideas, levels … almost nonexistent things  (James Salter Quotes) I don’t fear death. I’m not obsessed with it the way everybody else seems to be  (James Salter Quotes) I wasted time writing films. I don’t look back on those years as lost, but it wasn’t what I should have been doing  (James Salter Quotes) The summer has ended. The garden withers. The mornings become chill. I am thirty, I am thirty-four -the years turn dry as leaves  (James Salter Quotes) The normal economic system works itself  (James Salter Quotes) Women fall in love when they get to know you. Men are just the opposite. When they finally know you they’re ready to leave  (James Salter Quotes) A film writer is very much like a party girl. While you’re good-looking and still unlined, the possibilities seem endless. But your appeal doesn’t last long and you’re quickly discarded  (James Salter Quotes) I write down portions, maybe fragments, and perhaps an imperfect view of what I’m hoping to write. Out of that, I keep trying to find exactly what I want  (James Salter Quotes) I would say that I am a jaded man beyond most expectations, but, like everyone else, I still have hope.  (James Salter Quotes) I’ve known the anxiety of being completely lost, flying at night. It can be extreme. You’re travelling at close to five hundred miles an hour, and every minute that goes by takes you further into being lost unless you get help from ground radar somewhere or somehow figure out the error.  (James Salter Quotes) I wasted time writing films. I don’t look back on those years as lost, but it wasn’t what I should have been doing.  (James Salter Quotes) There is no situation like the open road, and seeing things completely afresh. I’m used to traveling. It’s not a question of meeting or seeing new faces particularly, or hearing new stories, but of looking at life in a different way. It’s the curtain coming up on another act.  (James Salter Quotes) The writing workshops and programs that are everywhere have encouraged writing. And if that produces more writing, it’s also producing more readers of an elevated level. So all in all, a good thing.  (James Salter Quotes) I’d say the biggest relationship is the repetition of certain themes. I don’t want to say topics, but certain points of interest.  (James Salter Quotes) The writing is really important in books that affect me. I read for the writing. The story is usually of less interest to me. It’s the words that break your heart.  (James Salter Quotes) If you read a book about school - someone else’s book - you always translate it into your own school experiences. It’s describing the student: he’s bewildered and lost in a large crowd in a university classroom. You’ll visualize that from your own experiences. So, everything you know is what you’re really writing.  (James Salter Quotes) Every nation feels itself to be superior, but in America it’s a jaunty feeling, and in some cases a rather ominous one among the super-patriots.  (James Salter Quotes) My first book was published without any editorial advice. Nobody said, ‘You might do this or that,’ or ‘Why don’t we see more of this.’ I merely took the book and published it.  (James Salter Quotes)
