5 Lovely Quotes to Inspire the Writer in You


You Are Magic Inspirational Quotes Qiqi Emma January 18, 201017

Quotes always carry a nugget of wisdom. That's why I love them so much! 

Here are five quotes that I found at goodreads that I would like to share with you. 

Enjoy!

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” 
― Toni Morrison

“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” 
― Philip Pullman

“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.” 
― Robert Frost

“Lock up your libraries if you like, but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.” 
― Virginia WoolfA Room Of One's Own

“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them -- words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a tellar but for want of an understanding ear.” 
― Stephen KingDifferent Seasons
