“Don’t you worry, and don’t you hurry.”
I know that phrase by heart, and if all other music should perish out of the world it would still sing to me.

Mark Twain

Truth is mighty and will prevail.
There is nothing wrong with this, except that it ain’t so.

Quotation – July 12, 2017

When I start on a book, I have been thinking about it and making occasional notes for some time–20 years in the case of “Imperial Earth”, and 10 years in the case of the novel I’m presently working on. So I have lots of theme, locale, subjects and technical ideas. It’s amazing how the subconscious self works on these things. I don’t worry about long periods of not doing anything. I know my subconscious is busy.

Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s voice, another’s soul.

The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.

Albert Einstein


Quotation #2 – July 3, 2017

I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.

James Michener


Quotation – July 3, 2017

The conclusion to be drawn is that I am happiest writing in small rooms. They make me feel comfortable and secure. And it took me years to figure out that I need to write in a corner. Like a small animal burrowing into its hole, I shift furniture around, and back myself into a cozy corner, with my back to the wall…and then I can write.

Danielle Steel
