“Collect books, even if you don’t plan on reading them right away. Nothing is more important than an unread library.”

– Austin Kleon

“How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow? I must have a dark side also If I am to be whole”

– C.G. Jung

“Just as anyone who listens to the muse will hear, you can write out of your own intention or out of inspiration. There is such a thing. It comes up and talks. And those who have heard deeply the rhythms and hymns of the gods, can recite those hymns in such a way that the gods will be attracted.”

– Joseph Campbell

“I wrote a book. It sucked. I wrote nine more books. They sucked, too. Meanwhile, I read every single thing I could find on publishing and writing, went to conferences, joined professional organizations, hooked up with fellow writers in critique groups, and didn’t give up. Then I wrote one more book.”

– Beth Revis

“I think of myself as a bad writer with big ideas, but I’d rather be that than a big writer with bad ideas.”

– Michael Moorcock

“Being an author is having angels whisper in your ear - and devils, too.”

– Graycie Harmon

“I am so grateful for my troubles. As I reflect back on my life, I have come to realize that my greatest triumphs have been born of my greatest troubles.”

– Steve Maraboli

“We light the oven so that everyone may bake bread in it.”

– José Martí

“It is the most fun I’m ever going to have. I love to write. I love it. I mean, there’s nothing in the world I like better, and that includes sex, probably because I’m so very bad at it. It’s the greatest peace when I’m in a scene, and it’s just me and the character, that’s it, that’s where I want to live my life.”

– Joss Whedon

“I’ve pursued dreams and achieved them, but I don’t think anybody should think their life is incomplete if they don’t follow some dream. Happiness doesn’t come from achievements, or money, or any sort of treasure. Happiness is a frame of mind, not a destination. It’s appreciating what you’ve got and building relationships with those around you.”

– Janette Rallison
