Ideals are the Fairly Oil

Ideals are the Fairly Oil
With which we help the Wheel
But when the Vital Axle turns
The Eye rejects the Oil.

To Be A Known Writer

Be your writings inferior.
Hire a critic to review.
Pay media to advertise.
Spend for marketing
You'll have been a writer,
Renowned and well known.

Mahatma Gandhi is a writer

He who writes is not a writer.
He whose writing has been his life
And who has made his life his writing
Is he who only is called a writer.

I Am A Writer

I know my words whenever somebody use them,
For i am a writer in a very special class;
So try to ask of my permission before copying my very words as your own.

Now I am a writer who can command fairly good payments from magazines with large circulations, I very often refuse to write for them and still write sometimes for small magazines for nothing.

The skill of the writer.

You describe a woman
As slender, lean, lanky
Or svelte to convey
That she is not plump.
Yet each word chosen
Is distinct in its conveyance.
The choice of words is
The skill of the writer,
That speaks volumes.

Tim Robbins

I'm fairly competant as a director and actor, but I am Mr. Neurotic as a writer. I just don't have enough confidence in my abilities to take criticism well. I take it personally. Start with 'It's a masterpiece,' and then tell me what you think could be changed.

What Is A Writer's Block?

i am looking for a writer's block?
what is the number of its street?
what is its name?
what is the number of its block?
what landmark fronts it?
is it near the chapel? is it at the side
of the marketplace?

i have never been there
condemned, i shall write
without stopping.

A Writer

When a writer, takes up his pen,
Yesterday, today, and
tomorrow begins.

We approach an open door,
Inside starting to explore.

Taking my readers on the
journey too,
Precious treasures to review.

Come along, go with me,
together, we will find the
key.

Exploring life's mysteries.

If God Did Not Give Me The Power As Writer

IF GOD DID NOT GIVE ME THE POWER AS WRITER

If God did not give me the power as writer,
To be recognized and remembered-
I should not necessarily
Live out the rest of my days
In shame and guilt and regret and sadness.

So I am not good enough.

God help me be good,
To those I love.

Writer's Block

Uninspired
Lacking feeling
Devoid of emotion
Writer's Block
Nothing sparking desire
Nothing interesting
I need something new
Tired of words about love
Tired of words about life
Reaching for something
That always escapes my grasp
I need something to make me happy
To destroy my Writer's Block
For now I remain uninspired

The Writer's Author

GOD had written a story
in a book called 'destiny'
all things and even not-a-things are listed
and won't be missed

even Shakespeare could write the beautiful romeo n Juliet,
the story of Othello, Hamlet
or even he could made the beautifullest sonnet
GOD had written about all writer and poet

GOD is writer's author

Fountain pen & ink; Poor writer's cramp?

'Pour me more ink
If you want to write
your epitaph?
The tears are not durable
And it fades away
from the tomb.'
Writer cries
and a bookworm creeps
on the manuscript?

[Joseph Stalin who feared Leon Trotsky's pen more than he feared the Hitler's Army and that's why he used a paid agent to assasinate him with an ice dagger? ]

Fragment: What Men Gain Fairly

What men gain fairly -- that they should possess,
And children may inherit idleness,
From him who earns it—This is understood;
Private injustice may be general good.
But he who gains by base and armed wrong,
Or guilty fraud, or base compliances,
May be despoiled; even as a stolen dress
Is stripped from a convicted thief; and he
Left in the nakedness of infamy.

Seen By An Undisciplined Offspring

Stale, antiquated and rehashed.
Traditions strict.
And wished to be kept...
By those whose lives are lived by myths.
And hyped with unresisted propaganda.

But those days are fading quick!
Shown by those fed,
Such misfit misgivings of a nonexistence.
With expectations high and mighty...
Seen by an undisciplined offspring,
As too laughable to achieve or accomplish.

This Writer This Poet- Perhaps

THIS WRITER, THIS POET, PERHAPS

This Writer, this Poet, Perhaps
Who lived with some sense of Life
Greater than Life-
Some Love greater than Love
Some Goodness and Blessing
Greater than Goodness and Blessing
Which somehow must be found and made
Within the Self
And yet enhance the world
Beyond the bounds
Of what it had seen and known before.
This Writer, this Poet- perhaps.

Lines on a Type Writer

Having received a letter from a gentleman, done with a type writer,
and glorying in its superiority to the pen; we replied as follows :-

You glory in your type writer,
And its virtues you rehearse,
But we prefer the old inditer-
Moves two-forty, prose and verse.

And let each man work his will,
But never, never do abuse
The ancient and glorious quil
From the wing of a noble goose. *

Writer's gift

The flow of ink in the writer’s pen
The flow of thoughts in the writer’s mind
A golden thread joining the sweet words
An enduring garland fresh with thoughts
A precious gem, worthier than gold
An epic in itself, the writer’s gift
No word is spoken, yet the tale is told
His mind speaks, his heart speaks
He blows life in each of his creation
The verses breath, the verses speak
The writer dies, yet the verses live

Magic writer

Am the writer who going to write about the truth
Am the writer who going to write about the things you went throw
Am going to take all the pain out of you
And make magic to it and make it go away
Am the magic writer
I was born in the magic city
Where every one was smiling and happy
Where every kid had their own magical talent
I had the talent to write about people’s pain
And I could take it away
Because am the magic writer

Reader or writer

If you are a reader or a writer.
You should be a positive thinker.
You are more like a scientist observer.
Try to be an exact experimenter.
Nothing is too crazy to put on paper.


If you are a reader or a writer.
The reader is a wonderful dreamer.
The writer is a sincere worker.
Its lovely that both can be each other.


If you are a reader or a writer.
You should never say never.
So don't leave behind a book marker.
Make sure you have a word sharpener.
