How a Writer Should Live – William Saroyan

The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think:

Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep.

Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell.

And when you get angry, get good and angry.

Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.
Preface to The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze (1934) by William Saroyan

    I certainly agree with this quote. It should apply to everyone not just writers.

      Absolutely! But then, everyone is a writer!
