A quote I love

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
- Mary Ann Radmacher


  1. Oh, that's lovely. Thanks for sharing

  2. Wow. That is superb. Thanks for posting it.

  3. That's so nice. I love it. The following is the quote I use for inspiration every time I sit down to write. Sorry it's long, but I thought I should share.

    "My gripe is not with lovers of the truth, but with truth herself. What succor, what consolation, is there in truth, compared to a good story? What good is truth, at midnight, in the dark, when the wind is roaring like a bear in the chimney? When lightning strikes shadows on the bedroom wall and the rain taps at the window with it’s long fingernails? No. When fear and cold make a statue of you in your bed, don’t expect hard-boned and fleshless truth to come running to your aid. What you need are the plump comforts of a story. The soothing, rocking safety of a lie."

    It's from THE THIRTEENTH TALE. Amazing novel, by the way. Great quotes in it too!
