A Quote by Milan Kundera on novel, writing, existence, knowledge, and morality

A novel that does not uncover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral. Knowledge is the novel's only morality.

Life is what you make it will your story have a peak, a conflict, suspence, action, a climax, and a conclusion? Or will you live your life keeping it safe and never taking any risks?  Ask yourself: if your life story were written, would you read it?

A Quote by unknown on novel


Any time you tamper with a beloved novel, you're taking a chance, but if you don't tamper with the novel, you're basically making a book-on-tape with pretty pictures. The challenge here was to take Khaled Hosseini's story -- which has inspired so much affection and loyalty from its readers -- and find a way to tell it in two hours without benefit of access to the protagonist's mind.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on verisimilitude, limitation, experimental, self-publishing, mainstream, rubicon, ficion, novel, luke soloman, multidimensionality, and beginners luke

Years from now when verisimilitude is finally understood as a terribly limiting proposition, let our daringly experimental books (often self-published, often ignored by the mainstream) be remembered as the Rubicon fiction crossed on its journey into multidimensionality.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, imagination, imaginary, imaginal, creativity, creation, co-creation, reality creation, adventure, experience, road of experience, the moment, the power of now, art, expression, self-creation, reinvention, passion

I was sick to the bone of disappearing by degrees, dissolving into library walls, playing my sad little violin of loneliness as time’s invisible ink wrote out my meaningless days even as it erased them. We imaginary people must live the Adventure passionately, set ourselves down with the liquefied marrow of Experience, or else lament the Moment’s passing with a whimper as our unrecorded voices are swallowed by silence.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, sol luckman, literary movement, literature, writing, novel, literary theory, literary criticism, ars poetica, inspiration, and humor

Let’s begin a new literary movement. I don’t care what we call it. Let’s start writing novels for people who don't like novels. Because these days who can blame them? You can please all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you can’t please all the people all the time. So let’s at least please ourselves.

A Quote by Thomas J. "Tom" Peters on novel, nonlinear, passion, success, and creativity

To grasp organizational life as it is, read novels (!) .... It is my fervent belief that we will never design rational processes that "overcome" such irregularities—don't bother telling that to a consultant. Hence, we should embrace the real, nonrational, nonlinear world with vigor and glee—and develop enterprise and career strategies accordingly.

Tom Peters (1942 -)

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beauty, metaphor, truth, real, reality, real world, imagination, consciousness, cocreation, law of attraction, sol luckman, beginners luke, writing, visionary, literary, poetry, and novel

The beauty of a metaphor is it doesn’t have to be real to ring true. The instant a metaphor becomes real it ceases to be a metaphor, which suggests a disconnect between truth and what’s commonly referred to as reality. This is a pivotal point—that the real world probably isn’t what you believe it is, or rather, that it’s precisely what you believe it is—which, if you still don’t get it, I can only trust someday you will.
