"When the writer becomes the center of his attention, he becomes a nudnik.
And a nudnik who believes he's profound is even worse than just a
plain nudnik." -- Isaac Bashevis Singer

And two that apply to both writing and to other fields:

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
-- Albert Einstein

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more
violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in
the opposite direction." -- E.F. Schumacher
