How to use writer in a sentence?

  1. Ehsan Sehgal:

    A chicken benefits not from her eggs, the honeybees cannot enjoy their honey; similarly, a writer earns nothing from its writing, and visionary one receives not profit from its vision. However, the dominant figures stay to contribute a little support for the continuation of such a selfish and monopolized system.

  2. Maya Angelou:

    I think I am the only serious writer who has chosen the autobiographical form to carry my work, my expression.

  3. André Maurois:

    The need to express oneself in writing springs from a mal-adjustment to life, or from an inner conflict which the adolescent (or the grown man) cannot resolve in action. Those to whom action comes as easily as breathing rarely feel the need to break loose from the real, to rise above, and describe it... I do not mean that it is enough to be maladjusted to become a great writer, but writing is, for some, a method of resolving a conflict, provided they have the necessary talent.

  4. Josh Billings:

    About the most originality that any writer can hope to achieve honestly is to steal with good judgment.

  5. Tim Roth:

    I learned very early with Quentin on 'Reservoir Dogs' ... if you've got a writer like that you never say no, you just hope you're going to get invited.
