A few writerly quotes

The paying job calls, which means I don’t have much time for a post today, so I’ll just leave a few quotes that I think are relevant to writing.  And most are second-hand, so if any of the attributions are incorrect, I apologize (and let me know so I can correct them).

“If you do not feel yourself growing in your work and your life broadening and deepening, if your task is not a perpetual tonic to you, you have not found your place.” – Orison Swett Marden

“Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music – the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people.  Forget yourself.”  – Henry Miller

“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.” – Henry Ford

“The final purpose of art is to intensify, even, if necessary, to exacerbate, the moral consciousness of people.” – Norman Maher
