“It has been often said that writing is 99 percent perspiration and 1 percent inspiration. In my experience, this is true. But, in my opinion, it is useless without that 1 percent. It’s like an engine without fuel — can’t get anywhere without it. Or like a lighthouse without a light on top — doesn’t guide anyone in to home or safe harbor.”

– Robert Fanney

“Even in climes/without snow/one cannot go/foward sometimes./Things test you./You are part of/the Donners or/part of the rescue:/a muleteer in/earflaps; a/formerly hearty/Midwestern farmer/perhaps. Both/parties trapped/within sight/of the pass.”

– Kay Ryan

“The satisfactions/of agreement are/immediate as sugar—/a melting of the/granular, a syrup/that lingers, shared/not singular./Many prefer it.”

– Kay Ryan

“If your leg is in a cast, it’s really dumb to sit in front of your computer doing unnecessary stuff with it hanging down. Your leg will swell and heal slower, if at all. When you go to your doctor, he/she will give you one of those “you’re really dumb and self destructive” looks. Also, “Why didn’t you follow my orders and rest?” Your doctor will be right, and so will mine at my next office visit. Elevate, folk! Elevate your mind, your soul, and your leg, in the order needed!”

– Sandy Nathan, Numenon

“An intelligent woman is a goldmine! She has the ability to learn, reason and understand things better and faster than her contemporaries. She is competent, alert and can reason out stuffs easily.”

– Jaachynma N.E. Agu

“In the very act of writing I felt pleased with what I did. There was the pleasure of having words come to me, and the pleasure of ordering them, re-ordering them, weighing one against another. Pleasure also in the imagination of the story, the feeling that it could mean something. Mostly I was glad to find out that I could write at all. In writing you work toward a result you won’t see for years, and can’t be sure you’ll ever see. It takes stamina and self-mastery and faith. It demands those things of you, then gives them back with a little extra, a surprise to keep you coming. It toughens you and clears your head. I could feel it happening. I was saving my life with every word I wrote, and I knew it.”

– Tobias Wolff

“I am not afraid of tomorrow for I have seen yesterday, I have today and I know Him who holds tomorrow so I know tomorrow will be beautiful for me.”

– Jaachynma N.E. Agu

“No man is ever just one thing.”

– Michael Scott

“Evil does not exist; once you have crossed the threshold, all is good. Once in another world, you must hold your tongue.”

– Franz Kafka

“There is no communication in this world except between equals.”

– Ken Burns
