John Gardner

"...language plays a far more active role in the creative process. No doubt it is sometimes true that the writer has an intuition of what it is he wants to say and, after a struggle, finds just the right words to express the meaning he knew was there waiting to be expressed. Just as often - probably more often - language actively drives the writer to meanings he had no idea he would come to."
