A backlog of the quotes I feature on the sidebar of my blog.
“A creative person has little power over his own life. He is not free. He is captive and driven by his daimon.” – Carl Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections
“You’re not on a quest to save the world but to save yourself.. and in doing so, you save the world” – Joseph Campbell
“Live to the point of tears.” ― Albert Camus
“I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.” – Lucille Ball
“I try to push ideas away, and the ones that will not leave me alone are the ones that ultimately end up happening.” – J. J. Abrams
“Half of the troubles of this life can be traced to saying yes too quickly and not saying no soon enough.” – Josh Billings
“People don’t take trips. Trips take people.” – John Steinbeck
“Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes.” – Hugh Prather
“Emotional independence leads to absolutely nowhere – except to a would-be fortress, whose only and useless objective is to impress others.
Emotional dependence, in its turn, is like a bonfire that we light.” – Paulo Coelho
“Eventually, we find the story not despite failed efforts to find the story but through those efforts. Without our false starts, we would have gotten nowhere at all.” ― Peter Turchi, Maps of the Imagination: The Writer As Cartographer
“It seems to me that our three basic needs, for food and security and love, are so mixed and mingled and entwined that we cannot straightly think of one without the others. So it happens that when I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and the hunger for it… and then the warmth and richness and fine reality of hunger satisfied… and it is all one.” ― MFK Fisher, The Art of Eating
