Richard Price QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
All I really want is one outside opinion. They say, "He who has two watches never knows what time it is" - you have to pick one person and decide to trust them.
Quotation of Richard Price
At some point I started wondering what it means to teach for free in an inner-city school - what's in it for me?
Quotation of Richard Price
I can never read this book, just like I can never see a movie that I wrote a screenplay for. I can read it and see it physically, but I can't accurately judge it. I'm too close to it. If I read it ten times I'll have ten different reactions.
Quotation of Richard Price
I do small cameos here and there but nothing that requires more than a paragraph of talking, because I'm just an amateur. The movie is a whole different reality.
Quotation of Richard Price
I don't need all that much - I just need to know who my characters are and what kind of jam they're going to get into, and I'll write myself out of their jam.
Quotation of Richard Price
I have offices all over the place and I avoid work everywhere. I don't like to write - I like to be finished.
Quotation of Richard Price
I started thinking about my relationship with my students; I'm this guy who comes in from book - and movie - land and descends on angel wings into their classroom.
Quotation of Richard Price
I think the definition of an artist is not necessarily tied into excellence or talent; an artist is somebody who, if you took away their freedom to make art, would lose their mind.
Quotation of Richard Price
I write because I can't imagine not writing.
Quotation of Richard Price
I write because I write - as anyone in the arts does. You're a painter because you feel you have no choice but to paint. You're a writer because this is what you do.
Quotation of Richard Price
I'd love to be a saxophonist. I don't know why, but I pretend I'm the saxophonist when I listen to music. I have about as much chance playing the sax as I do learning how to fly.
Quotation of Richard Price
If I can tell you the story from beginning to end in five minutes, I'm ready to start writing. Then it's a constant spreading out of that five minutes.
Quotation of Richard Price
If you're writing a book that takes place in New York in the moment, you can't not write about 9-11; you can't not integrate it. My main character's view is the Statue of Liberty and the Trade Center. It doesn't have to take over, but it has to be acknowledged.
Quotation of Richard Price
It would make me so happy if I didn't have to write the scripts of my own books.
Quotation of Richard Price
This book falls under the category of "stuff I know," as opposed to "stuff I need to learn".
Quotation of Richard Price
Writers spend three years rearranging 26 letters of the alphabet. It's enough to make you lose your mind day by day.
Quotation of Richard Price
You can point out to people how to make what they do better, but you can't teach somebody how to be a great writer, just like you can't teach somebody how to be a fast runner. You can work on their technique, but either they're fast or they're not; either they can write or they can't.
