It's been a long time since I've posted anything. It's June, and I can relax, so here I am! Yay.
To be a good writer, you have to look at other people's writing. You have to read. You have to learn how to put together a good sentence, a good metaphor, a poetic line. Or, you can read them for inspiration, for truth, for the pure poetry of the words. So, I'm sharing some of my favorite quotes from other writers (and others).
"Spiteful words can hurt your feelings, but silence breaks your heart."
~C. S. Lewis
"In learning the art of storytelling by animation, I have discovered that language has an anatomy."
"If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?"
"A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song."
"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."
I love these quotes. They're so true, and they're stated in a simple way. It's just... staggering how true they can be.
So, how about you? What are your favorite quotes?
