Writing and life

Because sometimes we all need a little reminder, a little encouragement that what we love does actually have meaning, here are a few good nuggets to chew on…

“Write with your eyes like painters, with your ears like musicians, with your feet like dancers.  You are the truthsayer with quill and torch.  Write with your tongues of fire.  Don’t let the pen banish you from yourself.” –Gloria Anzaldua

“If life is a poem, be the poet.  If life is a story, be the author.  If life is an adventure, be the hero.  To live any other way is a waste of this experience we call life.”  –Dr. Steve Maraboli

“A writer can do nothing for men more necessary, satisfying, than just simply to reveal to them the infinite possibilities of their own souls.”  –Walt Whitman

“The discipline of creation, be it to paint, compose, write, is an effort toward wholeness.”  –Madeleine L’Engle
