Creative Quotations from . . .
Leo Rosten
(1908-1997) born on
Apr 11
US novelist. He is best known for his humorous works and character Hyman Kaplan, "The Education of Hyman Kaplan," 1937.
         
   
F
A writer writes not because he is educated but because he is driven by the need to communicate. Behind the need to communicate is the need to share. Behind the need to share is the need to be understood.

R
The writer wants to be understood much more than he wants to be respected or praised or even loved. And that perhaps, is what makes him different from others.
A
Words must surely be counted among the most powerful drugs man ever invented.
N
If you're going to do something wrong, at least enjoy it.
K
