WISH I'D SAID THAT!
I collect quotes. I've been writing them down in a datebook for years. Some of them are profound, some inspiring, some are witty. Others are of the bumper-sticker ilk. I thought I'd share some of my favorites today. I try to track down the source, but please correct me if I'm wrong and excuse me if I don't know who originally said/wrote it. So here we go:
"Happiness is what you choose to pay attention to." -- attrituted to Janis Joplin.
"Write drunk, edit sober." --writerly advice from Ernest Hemingway
"Computers let you make more mistakes faster than any other invention in human history with the exception of handguns and tequila." --Unknown
"I am the literary equivalent of Big Mac and fries." --Stephen King
"Easy ready is damn hard writing." --Nathaniel Hawthorne
"Ever notice 'what the hell' is always the right decision?" --Unknown Hollywood screenwriter
"Until one has loved an animal, part of one's soul remains unawakened." --Anatole France
"Happiness is good health and a bad memory." --Paul Newman
"Never give yourself a haircut after three alcoholic beverages of any kind." --Rules of Life
"Not all those who wander are lost." --J.R.R. Tolkien
Okay, so these are all over the place. Quelle surprise! Do you have any favorite quotes, sayings, bumper stickers you're willing to share? We'd love to hear them!
