"Write Attitude"

Some quotes I stumbled upon :)

"Is life not a hundred times too short for us to stifle ourselves?"
- Friedrich Nietzsche

"Believe in yourself and in your own voice, because there will be
times in this business when you will be the only one who does. Take
heart from the knowledge that an author with a strong voice will
often have trouble at the start of his or her career because strong,
distinctive voices sometimes make editors nervous. But in the end,
only the strong survive."
- Jayne Ann Krentz

"This is for writers yet to be published who think the uphill climb will never end. Keep believing. This is also for published writers grown jaded by the process. Remember how lucky you are."
- Terry Brooks

"You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist."
- Isaac Asimov

"Dig until you hit rock. Then take out that jackhammer and go a little deeper."
- Allison Brennan

"The heights by great men reached and kept were not obtained by sudden flight. But they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night."
- Thomas S. Monson

"It's never too late to be what you might have been."
- George Eliot

"Screw the fear."
- Jo Leigh

"The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you've got to put up with the rain."
- Dolly Parton
