Key to Success

I make sure to keep sayings and quotes near me–pretty much all the time. The uplifting and inspirational ones. Positive motivation is key to success in all things we do. Including reading! Success in reading, you ask? Why yes. Lovers of books set reading goals and challenges and if we have a blog, we blog about it and more. We share to the world our love of reading and the impact it has on us and when we meet those challenges, we have accomplished a goal. THAT is a form of success in my opinion.

Here are just a few quotes that inspire or motivate me.

“What on earth could be more luxurious than a sofa, a book, and a cup of coffee?” -Anthony Trollope

“Never underestimate the power of good Literature” -Unknown

“Good books don’t give up all their secrets at once!” -Stephen King

“Literature is where I go to explore the highest and lowest places in human society and in the human spirit, where I hope to find not absolute truth by the truth of the tale, of the imagination, and of the heart “-Salman Rushdie

“A Room without books is like a body without a soul.” -Cicero

A quote I wrote…

“Writing is a time honored moment. When the writer breathes life into the characters and gives them a place in the reader’s heart. Characters capture us in their embrace and we take refuge in their lives in a world of uncertainties.” ~Stephanie M. Hopkins

  1. Two come to mind immediately. The first is: “Don’t waste time waiting for the storm to pass, learn to dance in the rain.” Very poignant!
    The other is my favourite writing quote: “You can’t edit a blank page.”
    And on that note, I’d better get off the internet and get back to writing! 😉
