Scott Briscoe Quotes

"And disaster is the rhythm to which my dance fails. I will no longer follow those notes which sing those songs of sorrow. I laugh. I must laugh. It is so much more beautiful to be falling in laughter than in tear. You are indeed my dream. I beat you with hearts in my sleep and I sing rays of the moon and colors of rainbows in your heart. I Love."

Thomas McCormack Quotes

"An author needs a lot more than one person to succumb to his literary seductive charms, but, like Saul, he must realize that he doesnt have to--and indeed cannot--capture the hearts of every possible reader out there. No matter who the writer, his ideal intended audience is only a small faction of all the living readers. Name the most widely read authors you can think of--from Shakespeare, Austen, and Dickens to Robert Waller, Stephen King, and J.K. Rowling--and the immense majority of book-buyers out there actively decline to read them."

Howard Wilkinson Quotes

Kiese Laymon Quotes

Quotes About Love In The Old Testament

"Pure, unadulterated, consistent love for God and pure, unadulterated, consistent love for others is the summation of all the law God has given us in both the Old and New Testaments. Of course, the problem is that we never obey these simple commands. We always love ourselves more than we love God or others. We are always erecting idols in our hearts and worshipping and serving them. We are always more focused on what we want and how we might get it than we are on loving Him and laying down our life for others. The law does show us the right way to live, but none of us obeys it. Not for one millisecond.Even though our children cannot and will not obey Gods law, we need to teach it to them again and again. And when they tell us that they cant love God or others in this way, we are not to argue with them. We are to agree with them and tell them of their need for a Savior." - Author: Elyse M. Fitzpatrick

Quotes About People Who Doubt You

"As immigrant artists for whom so much has been sacrificed, so many dreams have been deferred, we already doubt so much. Who do we think we are? We think we are people who risked not existing at all.

Before you even glance in his direction, you should have his name on a warrant, the ports blocked, his wife and friends bought, his heir under your protection, his money in your strong room and his dog running to your whistle. Before he wakes in the morning, you should have the axe in your hand." - Author: Hilary Mantel

Quotes About Not Wallowing In Self Pity

"You can kill the spell of identification just as easily as youcan create it—if you lose the readers sympathy for the character.You can lose reader sympathy by having your character commitacts of cruelty to another character with whom the readers identifymore strongly or for whom they have strong sympathy. Youcan lose reader sympathy by having the character make dumbchoices—acting at less than maximum capacity. The idiot inthe horror story who responds to creepy noises by going intothe attic armed only with a candle is an example. You can losereader sympathy when a character seems too ordinary, is stereotyped,or doesnt struggle hard enough. The reader wants tocheer a fighter, not witness a milquetoast wallowing in, say, selfpity." - Author: James N. Frey
