Quotes by E B White

‘A writer who waits for the ideal conditions under which to write will die without putting a word on paper.'

'There is no satisfactory explanation of style, no infallible guide to good writing, no assurance that a person who thinks clearly will be able to write clearly, no key that unlocks the door, no inflexible rules by which the young writer may steer his course. He will often find himself steering by stars that are disturbingly in motion.'
