Inspirational Quotes

Inspirational quotes are the best cure for writer's block. I post them electronically as stickies all over my mac dashboard and non-virtually on the bulletin board in my office. Here's one of my favorites.

“People without hope not only don’t write novels, but what is more to the point, they don’t read them. They don’t take long looks at anything, because they lack the courage. The way to despair is to refuse to have any kind of experience, and the novel, of course, is a way to have experience.” -- Flannery O'Connor

Please leave a comment with your favorite motivational quotes.


  1. A few of my favorites (and wow! is it hard to choose... I'm a bit of a quote fiend).

    "And the day came when the risk to remain in the bud became more painful than the risk it took to blossom." *Anais Nin

    "You're mad, bonkers, off with your head, but I'll tell you a secret.... all the best people are." *Alice in Wonderland II

  2. Great quotes. My favorite library in college had Alice in Wonderland quotes stenciled in gold all over the ceiling.
