Writing, whimsy and the world


 On Writing:

When you write, you're telling yourself the story. When you rewrite, your main job is taking out all the things that are not the story.~Stephen KingSource: SFNovelist.com

 On Achievement:

As you grow older, you'll find the only things you regret are the things you didn't do.~Zachary Scott KingSource: SFNovelist.com

 On Family:

When you want to teach children to think, you begin by treating them seriously when they are little, giving them responsibilities, talking to them candidly, providing privacy and solitude for them, and making them readers and thinkers of significant thoughts from the beginning. That's if you want to teach them to think.~Bertrand RussellSource: SFNovelist.com

 On Relationships:

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since. ‘Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone,’ he told me, ‘just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.’~F. Scott FitzgeraldSource: SFNovelist.com

 On Freedom:

None who have always been free can understand the terrible fascinating power of the hope of freedom to those who are not free.~Pearl S. BuckSource: SFNovelist.com
