Queen Latifah (b. March 18): “I don’t know how to be anyone else.”

18 Mar

“I really don’t know how to be anyone else, and whenever I try to be anyone else, I fail miserably. Or I disappoint myself. It doesn’t build my self-esteem, and it doesn’t help me grow me at all.”

~ Queen Latifah, b. 18 March 1970

“Writers may be disreputable, incorrigible, early to decay or late to bloom, but they dare to go it alone.”

Richard Condon (b. March 18): “Writers are too self-centered to be lonely.”

18 Mar

Richard Condon (born 18 March 1915, died 9 April 1996) was a prolific and popular American political novelist whose satiric works were generally presented in the form of thrillers or semi-thrillers, including Prizzi’s Honor and The Manchurian Candidate.

Five quotes on writing:

  1. Writers are too self-centered to be lonely.
  2. I’m a man of the marketplace as well as an artist. I’m a pawnbroker of myth.
  3. Amateur psychiatric prognosis can be fascinating when there’s absolutely nothing else to do.
  4. I think the most important part of storytelling is tension. It’s the constant tension of suspense that in a sense mirrors life, because nobody knows what’s going to happen three hours from now.
  5. Although the paranoiacs make the great leaders, it’s the resenters who make their best instruments because the resenters, those men with cancer of the psyche, make the great assassins.
