A Morning of Quotes

Good morning, readers!

Once again, I find myself falling behind schedule and must rush to get ready for work. Instead of writing a blog post today, I’m going to share with you a few of my favorite quotes from other authors and writers that help to remind me in times of high stress why it is that I love writing so much.. and may help you as well.

Have a read, feel inspired, and launch yourself into whatever today offers!

  • I learned never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it. – Ernest Hemingway
  • Writing and travel broaden your ass if not your mind and I like to write standing up. – Ernest Hemingway
  • Writing is nothing more than a guided dream. – Jorge Luis Borges

  • 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.  -Nathaniel Hawthorne
