Without Googling, match the quotation with the author who made it:
1. "I sometimes wonder when I read what even knowledgeable people say about writers and writing if they have any conception of what the life of a writer is like..."
2. "Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it."
3. "To produce a mighty book, you must choose a mighty theme."
4. "After great pain, a formal feeling comes."
5. "We allow our ignorance to prevail upon us and make us think we can survive alone, alone in patches, alone in groups, alone in races, even alone in genders."
6. "While you have a thing it can be taken from you . . . but when you give it, you have given it. No robber can take it from you. It is yours then for ever when you have given it. It will be yours always. That is to give."
7. "Courage -- or ego -- only extends so far, adrenalin runs out, nerves grow numb. Even fear and depression eventually collapse, unless you feed them parts of yourself."
8. "Blessed are they who expect nothing, for they shall not be disappointed."
9. "Write freely and as rapidly as possible and throw the whole thing on paper. Never correct or rewrite until the whole thing is down."
10. "We live in an age that reads too much to be wise."
