„Easy reading is damn hard writing.“

—  Nathaniel Hawthorne

Also attributed to Ernest Hemingway and others; the earliest definite occurrence of this yet found in research for Wikiquote is by Maya Angelou, who stated it in Conversations With Maya Angelou (1989) edited by Jeffrey M. Elliot:
I think it's Alexander Pope who says, "Easy writing is damn hard reading," and vice versa, easy reading is damn hard writing
The statement she referred to is most probably:
You write with ease, to show your breeding,
But easy writing's curst hard reading
Clio's Protest, or the Picture Varnished (written 1771, published 1819) by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

„The moment when a man's head drops off is seldom or never, I am inclined to think, precisely the most agreeable of his life.“

—  Nathaniel Hawthorne, kniha The Scarlet Letter

Introduction: The Custom-House
The Scarlet Letter (1850)
Kontext: The moment when a man's head drops off is seldom or never, I am inclined to think, precisely the most agreeable of his life. Nevertheless, like the greater part of our misfortunes, even so serious a contingency brings its remedy and consolation with it, if the sufferer will but make the best, rather than the worst, of the accident which has befallen him.

„What, in the name of common-sense, had I to do with any better society than I had always lived in?“

—  Nathaniel Hawthorne, kniha The Blithedale Romance

The Blithedale Romance (1852)
Kontext: What, in the name of common-sense, had I to do with any better society than I had always lived in? It had satisfied me well enough. My pleasant bachelor-parlor, sunny and shadowy, curtained and carpeted, with the bedchamber adjoining... my evening at the billiard club, the concert, the theatre, or at somebody's party, if I pleased - what could be better than all this? Was it better to hoe, to mow, to toil and moil amidst the accumulations of a barnyard; to be the chambermaid of two yoke of oxen and a dozen cows; to eat salt beef, and earn it with the sweat of my brow, and thereby take the tough morsel out of some wretch's mouth, into whose vocation I had thrust myself?

„Long, long may it be, ere he comes again! His hour is one of darkness, and adversity, and peril.“

—  Nathaniel Hawthorne, kniha The Gray Champion

"The Gray Champion" (1835) from Twice Told Tales (1837, 1851)
Kontext: Long, long may it be, ere he comes again! His hour is one of darkness, and adversity, and peril. But should domestic tyranny oppress us, or the invader's step pollute our soil, still may the Gray Champion come, for he is the type of New England's hereditary spirit; and his shadowy march, on the eve of danger, must ever be the pledge, that New England's sons will vindicate their ancestry.

„How slowly I have made my way in life! How much is still to be done!“

—  Nathaniel Hawthorne

Letter http://www.ibiblio.org/eldritch/nh/hb12.html to Horatio Bridge (15 March 1851)
Kontext: How slowly I have made my way in life! How much is still to be done! How little worth — outwardly speaking — is all that I have achieved! The bubble reputation is as much a bubble in literature as in war, and I should not be one whit the happier if mine were world-wide and time-long than I was when nobody but yourself had faith in me.
The only sensible ends of literature are, first, the pleasurable toil of writing; second, the gratification of one's family and friends; and, lastly, the solid cash.
