Quotes that make you think

"Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly."

"Trying to force creativity is never good."
Sarah McLachlan

"Indecision may or may not be my problem."
Jimmy Buffett
This is sooooo me!

An author ought to write for the youth of his own generation, the critics of the next, and the schoolmaster of ever afterwards.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
He would know!!

An artist is a dreamer consenting to dream of the actual world.
George Santayana
We are definately dreamers who not only dream of the world but despite the world.

It's not easy to cut through a human head with a hacksaw.
Michael Crichton

This one just made me wonder, "how does he know that?" Things that make you go hmmmm!!


  1. Good luck on the submission, Nikki! KEEP SENDING THAT STUFF OUT! Like my sister said in her interview - consistency is key! If they keep seeing your stuff, and it keeps getting better, someday, someone will say YES!

  2. Nikki, it's been way too long since we've talked. Thanks for the quotes. It was just what I needed! That last one is hilarious.
