Quotable Quotes

I adore quotes. I keep a file of them on my computer. I write them on the board before my Creative Writing classes. They inspire, entertain, and say so eloquently what I feel unable to express. So, from time to time, I'd like to post a some quotes here in my blog.

If you have any favorites, feel free to leave them in the "comment" section. I love it when writers exchange little gems with each other that way.

Anyway, here's a favorite of mine. (I can totally relate, in terms of waiting and hoping and praying to hear good news - finally - from an agent/editor!):

Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody. ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

  1. Love that quote! Here's another by Longfellow:
    "Let us, then, be up and doing
    With a heart for any fate;
    Still achieving, still pursuing,
    Learn to labor and to wait."
