Ray Bradbury on the Writer's Art

"We never sit anything out. We are cups and are constantly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out."--Ray Bradbury

This quote is taken from Ray Bradbury's wonderful book, Zen and the Art of Writing. Every human that ever lived collects experiences and insights as they pass through the world. As Ray Bradbury noted above, the thing that sets writers and artists apart is that we know "how to tip ourselves over." We share our experiences with the world to let others know what a beautiful experience life is. Like one of my college writing teachers once said, "the only thing different about writers is that writers WRITE!"
