William Randolph Hearst On Writing

  1. You must keep your mind on the objective, not the obstacle.
  2. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake, your readers might like it.
  3. All work and no play may make Jim a dull boy, but no work and all play makes Jim all kinds of a jackass.
  4. News is something somebody doesn’t want printed; all else is advertising.
  5. Try to be conspicuously accurate in everything, pictures as well as text. Truth is not only stranger than fiction, it is more interesting.
  6. It is a good thing that women are so easily manipulated. Otherwise, most of us wouldn’t be here.
  7. Putting out a newspaper without promotion is like winking at a girl in the dark — well intentioned, but ineffective
  8. You can crush a man with journalism.
