There’s Just Something About a Quote

…They are tiny flashes of inspiration, illumination, humor, hope. After reading one that resonates, I feel a connection, not just to the writer, but to the world. It’s a shared experience that reminds me I’m not alone out here. So for that reason, I created this page: To share some of that “inspiration, illumination, humor, hope” with you. See that? I just quoted myself!

Originally, I planned on including only quotes about writing, but I don’t want to restrict it that much. Those quotes will be included here, and will probably be in the majority, but I decided to also include any quote that floats my boat, as it were.

I invite you to add your favorites, of if you have a link to great quote site, add that, too.

To start things off, Woody Allen:

I don’t want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying.

Isaac Babel: No steel can pierce the human heart so chillingly as a period put just at the right place.

Hilaire Belloc: When I am dead, I hope it is said, “His sins were scarlet, but his books were read.”

Anton Chekhov: Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.

Jack London: You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.
