Quotes illustration
“If you are going to be a writer there is nothing I can say to stop you; if you're not going to be a writer nothing I can say will help you. What you really need at the beginning is somebody to let you know that the effort is real.”

More from James Baldwin

“When you're writing you're trying to find out something which you don't know.”
“You can not describe anything without betraying your point of view, your aspirations, your fears, your hopes. Everything.”
“Talent is insignificant. I know a lot of talented ruins. Beyond talent lie all the usual words: discipline, love, luck, but most of all, endurance.”
