Quote Day #12

A little more Thomas Wolfe for everyone. 🙂

“All things belonging to the earth will never change-the leaf, the blade, the flower, the wind that cries and sleeps and wakes again, the trees whose stiff arms clash and tremble in the dark, and the dust of lovers long since buried in the earth-all things proceeding from the earth to seasons, all things that lapse and change and come again upon the earth-these things will always be the same, for they come up from the earth that never changes, they go back into the earth that lasts forever. Only the earth endures, but it endures forever.”

― Thomas Wolfe, You Can’t Go Home Again


Quote Day #10

“So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say.”

–Virginia Wolfe, A Room of One’s Own.


“There is a difference between a book of two hundred pages from the very beginning, and a book of two hundred pages which is the result of an original eight hundred pages. The six hundred are there. Only you don’t see them.” –Eliezer ‘Elie’ Wiesel


Quote Day #6

Nope, did not forget. I’ve got two quotes about writing today. Enjoy!


“Substitute “damn” every time you’re inclined to write “very”; your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.”

–Mark Twain


“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”  –Ernest Hemingway

Quote Day #3

“Are we automatons? Yes. But we are awesome automatons.”

Quote Day! (#1)

Not long ago, I was standing up front at my work, answering some manager call when an elderly man handed me and the cashier a business-sized card, with the words, “Here, you’ll hang onto this.”

I immediately thought ‘Oh great, another Jesus card.’ since religious stuff is usually what perfect strangers hand out in retail establishments. Turns out, it wasn’t. And the man was correct, I have the card in my wallet. The front has a picture and quote from Thomas Jefferson, and the backside has a quote from Abraham Lincoln. Anyways, I’m declaring my Fridays as Quote Day, so here goes.

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.”

–Abraham Lincoln




Me:  I totally snuggled with you when I came to bed last night.

Tim:  Aaaw, you did?

Me:  Yup…you were kinda in the middle…so I had no choice.

Tim:  (snicker)
