July’s writer’s quote comes from the great Colombian novelist, short-story writer, journalist, and screen-writer Gabriel Jose de la Concordia Garcia Marquez (1927-2014), one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century.

“As a writer, I’m merely a journalist who has learned to write better than others.”

“It is much more  important to write than to be written about.”

“Faulkner is a writer who has had much to do with my soul, but Hemingway is the one who had the most to do with my craft — not simply for his books, but for his astounding knowledge of the aspect of craftsmanship in the science of writing.”

“All my life, I’ve been frightened at the moment I sit down to write.”

Best known for his novels Love in the Time of Cholera, One Hundred Years of Solitude, and The Autumn of the Patriarch, Garcia Marquez won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1982 and the Neustadt  International Prize for Literature in 1972. His style was fluid and ever-changing, marked by humor and magical realism.
