Quotes I Like

I was going through some old Word documents and found a file with the same title as this blog post. When I opened it up, I found the quotes below.

I’ve collected quotes for as long as I can remember. I love the following quotes still, and think I had saved them for future inspiration. I’m sharing them here to get the creative juices flowing again.

“The pause is as important as the note.” – Truman Fisher

“I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state.” – Roger Ebert

“We hold it all for a little while/Don’t we/Kiss the dice/Taste the rain like little knives upon our tongue/We can do no wrong when the lights go on/And the music plays/And we take the stage like we own the place/As if time were cheap/And the night forever young.” – Seven Shades of Blue, Beth Nielsen Chapman

“If we are to ever evolve into a peaceful society, we must be at peace with many things we disapprove of or cannot fathom.” – Cary Tennis

“The basic idea of the film is that what identifies people is not necessarily their bodies anymore; it’s all the relationships they maintain with others. You are your area, rather than you are yourself. If someone describes you, that description becomes part of your area, whether you like it or not.” – Ryan Trecartin, quoted in “Experimental People” by Calvin Tomkins, The New Yorker, March 24, 2014

Do you collect quotes, too? Which are your favorites?

Hey there, writers! No plans on Friday, May 1? Say around 11:45 a.m.?

Come to my panel with Hannah Harlow, Finding and Growing Your Online Audience, at the 2015 Muse and the Marketplace at the Boston Park Plaza! We’ll be discussing author websites, which social media platforms make sense for you, how to build your social community, and more.

We’re also planning to do a live critique of fellow authors’ websites. If you’d like to submit yours for consideration, tweet your website link to me @PascarellaSarah and we’ll consider it for inclusion in the panel!
