Something to Think About

Never correct or rewrite until the whole thing is down. Rewrite in process is usually found to be an excuse for not going on. ~John Steinbeck

Any man who will look into his heart and honestly write what he sees there will find plenty of readers. ~Edgar W. House

When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively. Somehow, the act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor.
~Norman Vincent Peale

I used to throw things out saying, 'This isn't great.' It didn't occur to me that it didn't have to be great. ~William Saroyan

The worst of writing is that one depends so much upon praise. ~Virginia Woolf

The pit is deep, but God is deeper still. ~Corrie Ten Boom

I love it when you put quotes on the blog. Often there is one that just pings my heart. Today it is Corrie Ten Boom's quote. And she is so right. God IS deeper.

Great blog. I hope you don't mind, but I borrowed the Steinbeck quote and added it my own blog today.
