Writing Quotes and Sayings
I have never lived so passionately as when I am writing passionately about living.
(Michael J. Budnicki)
"Either write things that are worth reading or do things that are worth writing about, and if you do both you can't go wrong"
The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. (Saint Augustine)
A writer writes not because he is educated but because he is driven by the need to communicate.
The art of communicating thoughts to the mind, through the eye is the great invention of the world. (Abraham Lincoln)
"You never quite know what exact arrangement of words that people understand, the intended meaning is not always a guarantee" (Howard Polley)
Some of the things that I have I learned about writing is that the more you write the more you learn. And one of the things that you learn when you write is that you learn to write better. And when you learn to write better you learn even more. So it’s safe to say, if you never stop writing about what you have learned, about yourself and the world, you will never stop learning. And when you never stop learning, that means that you will become a little smarter each and everyday, you will continually improve things, you will become better at solving problems and you will learn to become an even better person each day. Knowledge and information accumulates into a beautiful system of love and awareness.
Even though I’m a terrible writer, I myself look at writing as an incredible gift. At times writing can be so exhilarating to me that it’s better then any drug that I have ever done. But there were so many times in my life that I wished I had the words for those particular moments, but of course I didn’t.
It was always much later and too late. But as I found the words I realized that all is not lost. I can still say those words and share them by writing them down. For I am certain that those moments in my life will surely repeat themselves in other peoples lives if not my own. So just maybe, someone would be lucky enough to remember what I have written, and not have to walk away from a very important moment, saying, “I wished that I had the right words to say”. To me that is the greatest gift a writer could ever give. (Howard Polley)
"How do I know what I mean until I see what I say?"
There's a big difference between what you want to say and what you eventually do say.
Remember what you were thinking and share it.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Been there, done that! Been where? Done what?
