Wise Whisperers

For some reason, I was inspired to take a peek at a gathering of writers’ quotes I enjoy. When I did, I found myself uplifted, so I thought I’d share some of them with you:

“In the middle of the world, make one positive step. In the center of chaos,
make one definitive act. Just write.”
Natalie Goldberg

“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.”
William Wordsworth

“Practice from things as they are, and you will find strength and ease and a
a new fancy and new spirit coming altogether.”
John Ruskin to the artist Kate Greenaway.

“One writes to make a home for oneself, on paper, in time, in others’ minds.”
Alfred Kazin

“But have the courage to write whatever your dream is for yourself.”
May Sarton

“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.”
Douglas Adams

“I might write four lines or I might write twenty. I subtract and I add until I
really hit something. You don’t always whittle down, sometimes you whittle up.”
Grace Paley

“If you did not write every day, the poisons would accumulate and you would begin to die,
or act crazy or both — you must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.”
Ray Bradbury

“And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.”
Erica Jong

“Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you,
say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot.”
D. H. Lawrence

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
George Eliot

I hope one of these writers whispers to you just the inspiration you need today as you write on!
