|Pretentious as it may seem, these are quotes I've come across during my travels that have struck a chord somewhere in the depths of my withered old soul.|
"Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them."
"It is impossible to discourage the real writers - they don't give a damn what you say, they're going to write."
~ Sinclair Lewis
"I keep little notepads all over the place to write down ideas as soon as they strike, but the ones that fill up the quickest are always the ones at my nightstand."
~ Terri Guillemets
"And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self doubt."
~ Sylvia Plath
"Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass."
~ Anton Chekhov
