I've had a week where I could mangage to get very little thinking done. No remarks please, my brain really has been turned off even more than usual. My husband fell but most forunately didn't break anything. But he's a mass of bruises and the week has sped by due to extra attention he must have, plus doctor's visits, etc. etc. I'm glad he's here and not in a hospital, but my brain is pretty much mush.
Luckily I have this great friend, Carlene Dater, who sends me a thought a day. She's an author too so they're mostly all about writing and I love them. I've collected a bunch of them that are my favorites. With her permission I'm sending them on to youl
"Always remember imagination is more important than knowledge"...ALBERT EINSTEIN. That's pretty good advice from one of the brainiest men who ever lived.
Quote no. 2:
"Be ready when opportunity comes. Luck is the time when preparation and opportunity meet." ROY D. CHAPIN JR.
"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other." ABRAHAM LINCOLN
"Why not go out on a limb? Isn't that where the fruit is?"
No. 5 isn't exactly a quote, but it's something I didn't realize before. Novelist Carson McCullers endured three storke before she was twenty-nine. While she was crippled, partially paralyzed, and in constant pain, she suffered the profound shock of her husband's suicide. Others might have surrendered to such afflictions, but she settled for writing no less than a page a day. On that unrelenting schedule, she turned out many novels, including Member of the Wedding, The Ballad of the Sac Cafe, and
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.
And if that isn't inspirational I don't know what is.
How petty one's personal problem seem beside those of that great lady and author? And don't you love the quote from Frank Scully?
I'd love it if anybody wants to send me their favorite quote...
