Motivation Monday (As if we in Louisiana Need it)

Who Dat... who dat say they need motivation on this day after the Super Bowl? The state of Louisiana is motivated--we made history. And that's one for the books!

And speaking of books, we're readers at our house. When my sister-in-law passed away back in May of 2009, my brother-in-law boxed up all her books and asked if we wanted them. Now, they live four plus hours away, but I've never been one to say no to boxes of books. And hubby and daughter are as bad as I am. We toted large boxes to the CRV, and daughter was rifling through them, calling out the names of authors and titles before we got too far out of town. That's motivation to write, isn't it? Just think of all the wonderful readers out there... waiting for our books.


Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book. ~Author Unknown

A good book should leave you... slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it. ~William Styron, interview, Writers at Work, 1958

A good book has no ending. ~R.D. Cumming

Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren't very new after all. ~Abraham Lincoln

My test of a good novel is dreading to begin the last chapter. ~Thomas Helm

You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. ~Paul Sweeney

Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book. ~Christopher Morley
