She had a pretty gift for quotation, which is a serviceable substitute for wit . W. S Maugham.
Where your talents meet the needs of the world, there lies your vocation
Look for your own. Do not do what someone else could do as well as you. Do not say, do not write what someone else could say, could write as well as you. Care for nothing in yourself but what you feel exists nowhere else-and out of yourself create, impatiently…the most irreplaceable of beings.
Anyone who cannot come to terms with his life while he is alive needs one hand to ward off a little his despair over his fate… but with his other hand he can note down what he sees among the ruins.
Let the bird sing without deciphering the song.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
C S Lewis
Little by little, one travels far.
J R R Tolkien
Literature is news that stays news.
Any authentic creation is a gift to the future.
A man of genius makes no mistakes. His errors are volitional and are the portals of discovery.
Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.
Edgar Allan Poe
The highest reward for a person’s toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it.
Don’t listen to those who say, “It’s not done that way.” Maybe it’s not, but maybe you will. Don’t listen to those who say, “You’re taking too big a chance.” Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor, and it would surely be rubbed out by today. Most importantly, don’t listen when the little voice of fear inside of you rears its ugly head and says, “They’re all smarter than you out there. They’re more talented, they’re taller, blonder, prettier, luckier and have connections…” I firmly believe that if you follow a path that interests you, not to the exclusion of love, sensitivity, and cooperation with others, but with the strength of conviction that you can move others by your own efforts, and do not make success or failure the criteria by which you live, the chances are you’ll be a person worthy of your own respect.
