Writing Quotations

I re-blogged this post because it made me think that great quotes are a prelude to reading and every author knows what they say may very well have consequences like causing someone to picking up a book and start reading. The words written on a page can change lives, like turning on a light bulb in someone’s mind. That someone may decide to finish high school or go to college or start a movement that may lead to social change, or cause someone to hold on to life when all else seems lost. Writers have the power to change the world, and writers have changed the world.  That is why quotes from  insightful writers and others are so important.  So, thank  you  Dr. French and so many others who share amazing quotes, that may motivate someone to pick up a book and read.


charles french words reading and writing



“There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly; sometimes it’s like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.”

                                                                     Ernest Hemingway




“Writing is magic, as much the water of life as any other creative art. The water is free. So drink. Drink and be filled up.”

                                                                    Stephen King



And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.

                                                                   William Shakespeare

                                   A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act 5. Scene 1)
