What is more inspirational than reading?

Every writer is a reader torn between the joy of getting lost in a book and the complete joy and torture of writing his or her own. 

Nothing ever goes away enough or arrives enough,
and I want to cry when I think of my heart,
muscle pounding in muscle, greedy always for joy.
— From "Poems" by Eric Anderson
‎If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
— E.B. White
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.
— Mark Twain
Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.
— Gandhi
The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.
— Eleanor Roosevelt
I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.
— Sylvia Plath
Not a wasted word. This has been a main point to my literary thinking all my life.
— Hunter S. Thompson
I want to write because I have the urge to excel in one medium of translation and expression of life. I can’t be satisfied with the colossal job of merely living. Oh, no, I must order life in sonnets and sestinas and provide a verbal reflector for my 60-watt lighted head. Love is an illusion, but I would willingly fall for it if I could believe in it. Now everything seems either far and sad and cold, like a piece of shale at the bottom of a canyon - or warm and near and unthinking, like the pink dogwood.
— Silvia Plath
There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action,
 and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. 
And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. 
The world will not have it. 
It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how valuable it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. 
It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. 
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. 
You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate YOU. 
Keep the channel open.
— Martha Graham to Agnes DeMille, as quoted in “Dance to the Piper and Promenade Home” (1982) by Agnes de Mille, via ericksonian.com
Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don’t feel I should be doing something else.
— Gloria Steinem
If you wait for inspiration to write, you’re not a writer, you’re a waiter.
— Dan Poynter
The greatest part of a writer’s time is spent in reading, in order to write; a man will turn over half a library to make one book.
— Samuel Johnson
Always be a poet, even in prose.
— Charles Baudelaire
To gain your own voice, you have to forget about having it heard.
— Allen Ginsberg
Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.
— William Faulkner
...about clichés. Avoid them like the plague.
— Khaled Hosseini
Write without pay until somebody offers to pay.
— Mark Twain
Any writer worth his salt writes to please himself...It’s a self-exploratory operation that is endless. An exorcism of not necessarily his demon, but of his divine discontent.
— Harper Lee
A poem is never finished, only abandoned.
— W.H. Auden
There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.
— Ernest Hemingway
Unless the sun inside you is burning your gut, don’t do it.
— Charles Bukowski
Write.
Write more.
Write even more.
Write even more than that.
Write when you don’t want to.
Write when you do.
Write when you have something to say.
Write when you don’t.
Write every day.
Keep writing.
— Brian Clark
You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.
— Saul Bellow
You are sitting in the back garden in New Haven... Suddenly you look at your hand as it writes and you feel its mortality... If you neglect to leave something behind you when you die... you will disappear from the earth like smoke. No one in the future will now you were alive.
— Anne Stevenson
So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only hours, nobody can say.
— Virginia Woolf
How do I know what I think until I see what I say?
— E.M. Forster
