Inspiration is a guest that does not willingly visit the lazy.

A real book is not one that’s read, but one that reads us.

There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.

Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.

Inspiration is a guest that does not willingly visit the lazy.

Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.
