Here are some quotes by Ray I thought folks might appreciate:
You fail only if you stop writing.
You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.
We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.
Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things.
I know you've heard it a thousand times before. But it's true - hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don't love something, then don't do it.
Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall.
