Favorite Wipers Quotes

1. "Sound is so important to creative writing. Think of the sounds you hear that you include and the similes you use to describe what things sound like.

Learn all that you can about how to bring sound into your work."

2. "A Grand Design we couldn't see because we were part of it. A Grand Design we only got occasional, fleeting glimpses of.

And a hideous piece of Victorian artwork. And us."
Author: Connie Willis

4. "If you watched a movie about a guy who wanted a Volvo and worked for years to get it, you wouldn't cry at the end when he drove off the lot, testing the windshield wipers. You wouldn't tell your friends you saw a beautiful movie or go home and put a record on to think about the story you'd seen. The truth is, you wouldn't remember that movie a week later, except you'd feel robbed and want your money back. Nobody cries at the end of a movie about a guy who wants a Volvo.But we spend years actually living those stories, and expect our lives to be meaningful. The truth is, if what we choose to do with our lives won't make a story meaningful, it won't make a life meaningful either"
Author: Donald Miller

I remember watching it all and getting that tickling in my chest and thinking to myself: This is what happiness feels like."
Author: Gayle Forman
