Inspiration


"Trust in what you love, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go." (written on a paper weight on my desk)


"Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish." Ovid


"Every blade of grass has its Angel that bends over it and whispers, 'Grow, grow.'" The Talmud


The last quote is my favorite. It's such a lovely visual.

They are all new to me, too, Diane, and offer lovely visuals.

Oops, I was using my daughter and son-in-law's computer to leave my comment and it came out with my son-in-law's name. Sorry! It should have been "Edie."

Oh, I thought we had a new visitor to our blogsite!!! I'm glad that these are new to both of you. They've been favorites of mine for awhile.

I love how these quotes apply to life in general, not just writing. Very inspirational!

Lovely quotes Diane. I especially love the fishing one, and I am not a fisher-person, but love the idea of chance and destiny.
